Chargers WR Mike Williams (ankle) was upgraded to full participation in Thursday's practice. That should put him in line to play vs. the Dolphins on Sunday night. Williams originally suffered this high-ankle sprain in Week 7 and then lasted just 6 snaps before aggravating the issue in Week 11. That makes him a risky Week 14 fantasy play -- although he certainly boasts plenty of upside if he can make it through the game healthy.

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 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 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 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 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 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 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.

Despite the returns of WRs Keenan Allen and Mike Williams, WR Josh Palmer led Chargers receivers in Sunday night's loss to the Chiefs. Palmer paced the team in targets (10), receptions (8), yards (106) and claimed both of QB Justin Herbert's TD throws. Williams' early departure after he aggravated his sprained ankle certainly helped. Allen, meanwhile, finished 2nd in targets (8), catches (5) and yards (94). No other charger drew more than 3 targets. We'll see about Williams' status heading into a Week 12 visit to Arizona.

Chargers QB Justin Herbert posted a season-high 9.3 yards per pass attempt in Sunday night's loss to the Chiefs, finishing with 280 yards on 23-of-30 passing. He got WR Mike Williams back only briefly, as Williams tweaked his sprained ankle after just 1 target. WR Keenan Allen, however, racked up 5 catches for 94 yards among 8 targets in his most extensive action of the season. Allen had appeared for abbreviated stretches in just 2 previous games because of a nagging hamstring injury. There's room for Herbert to be a fantasy difference maker the rest of the way, with the league's 2nd-best remaining QB schedule.

Chargers WR Mike Williams aggravated his right-ankle injury on a 1st quarter catch in Sunday night's game vs. the Chiefs. Williams is still on the sidelines and is officially questionable to return, but he doesn't have his helmet. We'll update his status when we learn more.

Update: Williams has been ruled out.

Chargers WRs Mike Williams (ankle) and Keenan Allen (hamstring) are active for tonight’s game vs. the Chiefs. Both guys were limited in Wednesday and Thursday’s practices and upgraded to full participation on Friday. Their presence is excellent news for QB Justin Herbert.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that both Chargers WRs Keenan Allen (hamstring) and Mike Williams (ankle) are expected to play tonight against the Chiefs. Both are officially questionable, which adds some risk to waiting for the Sunday night kickoff. But each also finished the week with a full practice.

Chargers WRs Mike Williams (ankle) and Keenan Allen (hamstring) are listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game vs. the Chiefs. Both guys were limited in Wednesday and Thursday’s practices and upgraded to full participation on Friday. That seemingly has both on track to play on Sunday night. We’d try not to use Allen in fantasy lineups considering he’s been dealing with hamstring trouble since Week 1. Williams carries elevated risk coming off the high-ankle sprain but is probably worth starting on most fantasy teams.
