Chargers at Browns Week 5 Injury Report: Friday

The Chargers and Browns final injury report for Week 5 has been released.

COSTA MESA – The Chargers final injury report reflects three players who’ve received game designations.

Wide receiver Keenan Allen has been ruled out for the fourth consecutive game as he nurses a hamstring injury. Wide receiver Joshua Palmer, who’s dealing with an ankle injury, and kicker Dustin Hopkins, who has discomfort in his quad, are both considered questionable for the Week 5 game in Cleveland.

Chargers coach Brandon Staley said Hopkins did some kicking on Friday and will be a game-time decision. In the event Hopkins is unable to play, the Chargers will elevate kicker Taylor Bertolet from the practice squad ahead of Sunday’s game.

Meanwhile, the Browns have two players who received game designations, featuring defensive end Jadeveon Clowney and defensive tackle Taven Bryan.
