The Chargers announced that WR Mike Williams (back) will not practice in training camp. The team is still hoping that he can avoid surgery on his herniated disc. He's rehabbing now, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, and has resumed running. "They just don't want any setbacks," Rapoport adds. "No rush." Williams is falling further and further behind, though, and certainly seems like a candidate for the reserve PUP list -- which would cost him the first 6 weeks of the regular season. Williams is basically undraftable in redraft leagues right now. WR Tyrell Williams' stock continues to rise.
Chargers WR Mike Williams has been activated from the COVID list, putting him on track to return for Sunday's game vs. the Broncos. Williams has scored as a WR3 since a hot start to the season and carries some extra risk this week in his first game back from COVID.
Chargers HC Brandon Staley confirmed Monday that WR Mike Williams will miss the Week 17 game against the Broncos. That's because Williams tested positive for COVID late last week and is unvaccinated. So he's forced to stay away from the team for at least 10 days. Jalen Guyton has yet to return from the COVID list but could see an elevated role if he makes it back in time. Josh Palmer also gains prominence with Williams out.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Chargers WR Mike Williams will miss at least 10 days after testing positive for COVID Saturday, meaning that he's unvaccinated. That'll knock Williams out for at least the team's Week 17 game as well. Josh Palmer should fill in vs. Houston. Jalen Guyton will likely be back in time for Week 17, though.
The Chargers have placed WR Mike Williams on the COVID list. It's his 2nd stint this year, but the 1st came as a close contact. He's out for Sunday's game against the Texans. With Jalen Guyton already on the COVID list, Josh Palmer should be the #2 WR alongside Keenan Allen. He carries intrigue from at least WR4 territory. We wouldn't be shocked to see him rank among the top 25 WRs by the end of the week.
Chargers WR Mike Williams is officially active for today’s game vs. the Giants. He spent the week on the COVID list after being deemed a close contact of WR Keenan Allen. But Williams never tested positive for the virus and should be ready for a full workload today.
