Denver Broncos

Case Keenum completed 26-of-42 passes for 290 yards and one touchdown in the Broncos' Week 9 loss to the Texans. It was a shrug-inducing day for Keenum, who at least notched the one score to make his outing semi-respectable. He ultimately missed a few downfield throws (as he's one to do) and wasn't helped any on a deep touchdown-drop by rookie Courtland Sutton. Demaryius Thomas' absence didn't seem to faze him any, though, as he instead locked in on TE Jeff Heuerman (10/83/1) for a team-high 11 targets. Keenum's now thrown an even number of touchdowns and picks (11) this season. He'll again be a viable streamer when the Broncos return from their bye and face the Chargers in Week 11.

Los Angeles Chargers

Keenan Allen was added to the Chargers' injury report on Thursday, getting in a limited session with hip and finger issues.Mike Williams (groin) was also added, getting in a limited session. Mid-week additions are one thing. Mid-week additions with two separate injuries are another. It's not what you would like to see, but there is zero indication Allen's Week 11 status is in doubt. Allen has a tough matchup with Denver's Chris Harris.
