The Chargers are hoping wide receiver Mike Williams‘ back injury can heal well enough that he’ll practice at some point this week ahead of Saturday’s playoff game against the Jaguars.

Chargers head coach Brandon Staley said today that Williams is getting treatment on his back and is considered day-to-day. Staley said Williams may practice this week.

An MRI showed a contusion on Williams’ back, the Chargers have revealed. The indications from the team have been that Williams should play on Saturday.

Williams missed four games during the regular season but still led the Chargers with 895 receiving yards. Staley has been criticized for having Williams on the field in a meaningless game on Sunday, but it appears that Williams has dodged a bullet and escaped a serious injury.

  1. I have no idea what the Chargers were doing in that meaningless game against the Broncos. Dumbest thing I have seen in a long time. I get that there are limited roster spots and many starters have to play, but Herbert and Ekeler should have been in for max one series, and any key player that had injury issues during the season should have sat. Williams should not have been in that game.

    If the Chargers started back ups after a series then Denver wouldn’t have even played hard. They would have been thinking about being healthy for offseason golf instead of rehabbing all summer.

    Just get that game over with with no injuries. Really dumb.
