Chargers WR Keenan Allen named NFL Comeback Player of the Year

Three cheers for Keenan Allen!

The Chargers WR was named the Comeback Player of the Year on Saturday.

Allen returned from two devastating injuries to win the comeback honor. Allen missed half of the 2015 season with a kidney issue, then was lost in the 2016 season opener with a torn right ACL. There were questions if Allen would ever player at a high level again.

He answered those emphatically this season with the best year of his career. Allen caught 102 passes for 1,393 yards and six touchdowns. He was targeted 159 times, nearly 10 per game.
