Mike Williams has successful ACL surgery

Chargers WR Mike Williams underwent successful surgery on Wednesday (October 25) to repair his torn ACL, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Williams is expected to be ready for the start of training camp, which will be about nine months post-surgery. His contract currently carries a $32.5 million cap hit in 2024, so the Chargers will surely be looking to restructure. Williams turned 29 earlier this month.

Chargers WR Mike Williams has been diagnosed with a torn left ACL and will miss the rest of the 2023 season, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The timing of the injury at least gives Williams a good chance to be ready for the start of the 2024 campaign. He turns 29 in about a week and is officially signed with the Chargers for next season. But his contract currently carries a $32.5 million cap hit. Williams will need to restructure that deal to remain with the team. His absence for the rest of this season leaves behind big opportunity. Williams averaged 8.7 targets on a 21.3% share through three games. WR Josh Palmer is the better immediate bet for production with Williams out. But first-round rookie WR Quentin Johnston is the higher-upside longer-term bet. WR Keenan Allen, RB Austin Ekeler (once healthy), and TE Gerald Everett should also see a bit more volume without Williams.
