Chargers S Derwin James missed Wednesday's practice with a quad injury. HC Brandon Staley called him day-to-day, according to ESPN's Lindsey Thiry. We'll have to track James' status throughout the week. His absence would be big for Week 14 IDP lineups.

Chargers WR Mike Williams (ankle) put in a limited practice on Wednesday -- his first since re-injuring that ankle in Week 11. We'll see if Williams is able to make it back for Sunday night's game vs. the Dolphins.

Chargers RB Austin Ekeler managed only 35 yards on 10 carries in Sunday's matchup with a soft Raiders defense. It marked his 3rd outing among the past 4 games and 5th among the past 7 with less than 40 rushing yards. As usual, Ekeler made up for it with 67 yards on 5 receptions (among 6 targets). He did not find the end zone in a game that included just 1 offensive TD for his team. RB Joshua Kelley added 30 yards on 7 carries as the only other RB contributor.

Chargers QB Justin Herbert posted his 2nd-largest passing-yardage total of the season Sunday, throwing for 335 yards in a loss to the Raiders. He completed 28 of 47 throws (59.6%), finding WR Keenan Allen for the offense's only TD. Allen posted a 6-88-1 receiving line on a team-high 14 targets. WR Josh Palmer led the team with 7 catches among 11 targets and totaled 60 yards. TE Gerald Everett added 5 catches for 80 yards among 6 targets. The Chargers host Miami in Week 14. We'll see whether WR Mike Williams (ankle) can make it back for that contest.

Chargers LB Drue Tranquill (illness) and S Nasir Adderley (thumb) are active for today's game against the Raiders.

Chargers WR Mike Williams (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Raiders. He remained sidelined in practice all week and has no timetable for return. Keenan Allen, Josh Palmer and DeAndre Carter will again operate as Los Angeles’ top 3 WRs on Sunday.

Chargers WR Mike Williams (ankle) remained sidelined on Thursday. He's a long shot to play vs. the Raiders this weekend.

Chargers S Derwin James (hip) sat out of Wednesday's practice. He played ever snap of Sunday's win over the Cardinals, and we haven't seen any report since of a worrisome injury. So we'd bet on this being more of a rest day. But we'll track James' status through the week.

Chargers WR Mike Williams (ankle) remained sidelined on Wednesday. That doesn't bode well for his chances of returning for this weekend's game vs. the Raiders, but we'll continue to keep you updated on Williams' status.

Chargers RB Austin Ekeler racked up 15 targets and 11 catches in Sunday's late win over the Cardinals, snagging a 1-yard TD with 15 seconds left that set up the game-winning 2-point conversion. Ekeler needed that receiving production to make up for a mere 5-20 rushing line. Joshua Kelley and Isaiah Spiller carried 2 times apiece and combined for 4 targets. It was Kelley's 1st game since a Week 6 knee injury landed him on IR. Kelley played 6 more snaps than Spiller but also less than one-third of Ekeler's total. Next comes a generous Raiders D.

Chargers QB Justin Herbert threw for 274 yards and 3 TDs in Sunday's win over the Cardinals. Herbert hit WR Keenan Allen, WR DeAndre Carter and RB Austin Ekeler for TDs. The 1-yarder to Ekeler with 15 seconds left won the game. Ekeler (15) and Carter (10) combined for 53.2% of Herbert's pass attempts and 51.4% of his completions for the game. Carter caught 7 for 73 yards. WR Josh Palmer went 5-56 on 7 targets. Allen finished with 5 receptions for 49 yards. TE Gerald Everett added 4 catches for 18 yards on 4 targets. The Chargers get a soft Raiders defense in Week 13.

Chargers CB Michael Davis (knee) is active for today's game against the Cardinals. He's a low-level IDP but has been a full-time player over the past 3 games.

Chargers TE Gerald Everett (groin) is not listed on the final Week 12 injury report after putting in full practices on Thursday and Friday. He’ll be back for Sunday’s plus matchup against the Cardinals’ 31st-ranked TE defense.

Chargers WR Mike Williams (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Cardinals. He didn’t practice all week after aggravating that high-ankle sprain last Sunday night. Keenan Allen and Josh Palmer will serve as Los Angeles’ top 2 WRs this weekend.

Chargers WR Mike Williams (ankle) remained sidelined on Thursday. He's looking like a long shot to play vs. the Cardinals this weekend.

Chargers TE Gerald Everett (groin) was upgraded to full participation in Thursday's practice. That puts him on track to return for this weekend's game vs. the Cardinals' 31st-ranked TE defense.

Chargers WR Mike Williams (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. HC Brandon Staley said earlier in the day that Williams was expected to be limited. The re-aggravation of his high-ankle sprain reportedly isn't serious, but fantasy owners shouldn't be banking on Williams playing vs. the Cardinals this weekend.

Chargers TE Gerald Everett (groin) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He was left off the final injury report last Friday, added as questionable on Saturday and then missed Sunday night's game vs. the Chiefs. We'll see if Everett is able to make it back for this weekend's plus matchup vs. the Cardinals.

7:27pm EST 11/22/22

The Chargers placed K Dustin Hopkins (hamstring) on IR, knocking him out for at least another 4 games. K Cameron Dicker has made all 6 of his XPs and all 7 of his FG tries over the past 3 weeks.

Chargers HC Brandon Staley confirmed on Monday that WR Mike Williams re-aggravated his right high-ankle sprain in Sunday night's loss to the Chiefs. Staley added that the team will "find out a lot more in the next couple days" but that it's not "a significant re-injury." Considering Williams was out 4 weeks with the original injury, though, he seems unlikely to be available for Week 12's game against the Cardinals. That'd leave Keenan Allen and Josh Palmer as the Chargers' top 2 WRs.
