Chargers WR Keenan Allen (quad) active vs. Patriots

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen, who is dealing with a quad injury, will play Sunday against the New England Patriots.

Allen is listed as questionable for the game. He missed two days of practice this week with a thigh contusion but returned Friday as a limited participant.

When talking to reporters on Friday, Allen sounded encouraged about his chances to play.

"This is light, honestly," Allen said. "Thigh contusion is like a solid nick. That's considered not bad."

Through 11 games, Allen is Los Angeles' leading receiver with 97 catches for 1,117 yards and seven touchdowns.
