Anthony Lynn: Mike Williams “could be” out all season

The Chargers released a statement on Sunday saying that rookie wide receiver Mike Williams is not expected to practice at all during training camp due to the back injury he suffered on the first day of rookie minicamp this spring.

The lack of training camp time and the nature of Williams’ injury would seem to make him a candidate to open the regular season on the physically unable to perform list. That would keep him out of action for the first six weeks and coach Anthony Lynn said that the absence may stretch well beyond that point.

“I’m hopeful that it’s not [a season-ending injury], but who knows? It could be,” Lynn said, via the Los Angeles Times.

The Chargers’ Sunday announcement erased optimism about Williams’ availability that may have been created when the prospect of surgery was discarded earlier in the week. For now, it looks like getting the first-round pick on the field at all will be a win.

  1. The first two (Buffalo tackle and Detroit WR) were definitely big busts so this Mike Williams could be the third. Let’s hope not.

  2. I mean, if no one got the memos yet about drafting WR’s named Mike Williams, I have no sympathy for them. We’ve all seen this movie before.

  3. yoy literally just said the other day that
    things were looking good

    my goodness

    you drafted an injury prone bust and
    refuse to admit it

    Stupid pick, should have gone defense instead of taking the 2nd WR in 1st 7 picks.
    Preller is a joke.


    AJ Preller is the GM of the Padres……..wrong sport

  5. Didn’t Telesco recently say everything looked good with Williams?How does he “politic” out of that one? Mismanagement of this franchise is overwhelming.

  6. Curious minds want to know: Is his “back injury” related to the broken neck he incurred in 2015? Is it possible he’ll never play a down for any NFL team?
