May 17, 2017 7:32 AM

Keenan Allen has returned to the practice field ahead of schedule after tearing his ACL eight months ago.

Allen described himself as "80 to 85 percent" healthy in April.

"We've been real cautious with him," Los Angeles Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said. "We're just working him in right now on a limited basis. But he's full go."

Allen has appeared in just nine games the last two seasons, losing half of his 2015 campaign to a lacerated kidney.
