Allen left the game against the Kansas City Chiefs after landing awkwardly on his hip in the end zone, was thought to be out of action for weeks.
The Ravens have a formidable defense and one of the best in the league, despite having suspect corners.
Allen’s presence with be key to manipulating Baltimore’s defense as mismatches with the Raven’s slot corner and their linebackers, which will play in the Bolts favor.
The Chargers host the Ravens at Stub Hub Center on Saturday at 5:20PM PT.
