COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) If there were any doubts that Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen is healthy again, joint practices with the Rams and New Orleans Saints have quashed them.
Allen caught touchdowns in live red-zone and goal-line drills against the Saints, and also had an impressive one-handed grab in the 7-on-7 period. But it was a hit the previous week in the first meeting of the future stadium co-tenants that has been the talk of the Chargers' training camp.
Allen executed a perfect tackle of cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman during a scuffle between the Chargers wide receivers and Rams secondary, showcasing two-handed form that wouldn't have been out of place in mixed martial arts. It was a good reminder than Allen was once regarded as the best safety recruit in the country before he started playing receiver at California.
