Mike Williams Status

rotoWire
Williams agreed to restructure his contract Thursday, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports.

What it means:

The Chargers needed cap relief, and the restructures of Williams and Keenan Allen provided it. Williams' salary conversion creates $5.46 million in 2023 cap space for Los Angeles. Williams (back) was injured in the Week 18 loss to Denver and missed the playoff game against the Jaguars but should be healthy now.
rotoWire
Williams (back), who won't play in Saturday's wild-card game at Jacksonville, has "an outside shot" to return in the divisional round if the Chargers advance in the postseason, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

What it means:

Williams was forced out of the Chargers' Week 18 contest at Denver with a back injury, which initially was termed a contusion. He wasn't able to practice Tuesday through Thursday and eventually was ruled out for the first round of the playoffs Friday. At that point, Williams underwent additional testing on his back, and it was revealed that he had a transverse process fracture, which was expected to keep him sidelined for 2-to-3 weeks, according to Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com. While L.A. must win Saturday for Williams to have a chance to play again this season, there seems to be at least a glimmer of hope that he'll miss just one game as a result of his current health concern.
rotoWire
Further tests have revealed that Williams suffered a small non-surgical fracture in his back and the wideout is now expected to miss two-to-three weeks, per Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com.

What it means:

The Chargers had already downgraded Williams to out for Saturday night's playoff opener against the Jaguars, but it appears as though he'll miss time beyond this weekend. As a result, Joshua Palmer and DeAndre Carter are in line to see added wideout snaps for Los Angeles alongside Keenan Allen on Saturday, and likely beyond should the team advance past the wild-card round.

Mike Williams (back) ruled out for Chargers' Wild Card matchup

What it means:

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams (back) has been ruled out for the Wild Card Round on Saturday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Williams has been diagnosed with a back fracture and is expected to miss 2-3 weeks. Josh Palmer and DeAndre Carter will be more involved on Saturday in a plus matchup versus a porous Jaguars' secondary. Keenan Allen and Austin Ekeler will also have more targets available. Williams led the Chargers with a 33.4% air yards share in the regular season, so Justin Herbert will be without his primary deep threat on Saturday. In recent contests with Keenan Allen and Josh Palmer active and playing heavy snaps but with Williams out or limited, Herbert has averaged 290.5 yards and 2.0 touchdowns for 21.0 FanDuel points. The Jaguars are a pass-funnel defense, according to numberFire's adjusted team metrics, ranking seventh-worst against the pass and eighth-best against the run.
rotoWire
Williams (back) has been ruled out for Saturday night's playoff game against the Jaguars.

What it means:

The report notes that the wideout, who was previously listed as questionable by the Chargers, will remain in Los Angeles to continue receiving treatment for his back injury. In Williams' looming absence, look for Joshua Palmer and DeAndre Carter to see added snaps in the team's postseason opener alongside Keenan Allen.
rotoWire
Williams (back) is listed as questionable for Saturday's playoff opener against the Jaguars.

What it means:

Though Williams didn't practice again Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network relays that the Chargers plan to give the wideout up to game-time before a determination is made on his availability for Saturday night's 8:15 ET kickoff. If Williams ends up out or limited versus Jacksonville, however, Joshua Palmer and DeAndre Carter would be candidates to see added snaps alongside Keenan Allen.
