Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams will miss the next two to three weeks due to a fracture in his back. Head Coach Brandon Staley has come under fire for playing Williams and other starters in the team’s Week 18 matchup. The Chargers were locked into their seed and could not improve or lose seeding in the game. Because of this injury, Williams will not play in the team’s Wild Card matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars. That game is scheduled for Saturday at 8:15 p.m. EST. Wiliams would also be doubtful for the team’s Divisional Round game should they win Saturday.
The Chargers have ruled Mike Williams out of Saturdays game.

This season while battling through injuries with the Los Angeles Chargers, Mike Williams caught 63 passes for 895 yards and four touchdowns on 93 targets. Quarterback Justin Herbert and the Los Angeles Chargers offense are better with Williams on the field with them. The matchup against the Jaguars will be more difficult now, but the team will dig deep in the game. Head Coach Brandon Staley has been rumored to be on the hot seat and losing this game could spell disaster for his tenure with the franchise. We here at Def Pen Sports wish Williams the best in his recovery and eventual return to the football field.
