Chargers at Browns Week 5 Injury Report: Wednesday

The Chargers had nine players listed on their first injury report of the week.

COSTA MESA – Chargers coach Brandon Staley said Wednesday before practice that wide receiver Keenan Allen remains day-to-day with a hamstring injury. Tight end Donald Parham Jr. is progressing as the team will aim for him to make his return to the field this Sunday in Cleveland after being sidelined the first four weeks with a hamstring injury.

"We're trending that way," Parham said in the locker room Wednesday when asked if he thinks he'll make his season debut this Sunday.

Kicker Dustin Hopkins is dealing with a quad injury to his kicking leg and was considered a limited participant during practice. Staley said there's a possibility they could bring in another kicker later this week upon figuring out the severity of Hopkins' injury.

The Browns had 12 players appear on their first injury report of the week – some of which were in the form of rest day.
