Draft Scout *Mike Williams News
08/08/17 - WR Mike Williams, the team's first-round pick, is starting to run on the sidelines. The team is hopeful he can return after suffering a herniated disk during minicamp in May.
07/30/17 - WR Mike Williams is expected to miss training camp as he recovers from a back injury. The Chargers placed Williams, the No. 7 overall pick in this year's draft out of Clemson, on the physically unable to perform list Saturday before training camp kicked off Sunday. "Mike saw our doctors yesterday and he will continue to progress on Dr. Robert Watkins' plan. He will rehab and strengthen his back and is not expected to practice during training camp," the Chargers said in a statement. Williams, 22, was diagnosed with the herniated disk after his first practice during rookie minicamp in May that kept him out of offseason work. He was seen as a key new target for quarterback Philip Rivers. The 6-foot-4, 218-pound Williams caught 98 passes for 1,361 yards and 11 touchdowns last season as a key member of Clemson's national championship team.
07/19/17 - WR Mike Williams reportedly may need back surgery that would end his rookie season. The Chargers are still hoping Williams will respond positively to a recent second epidural on his herniated disk in a last-ditch effort to have the wide receiver ready at some time during training camp, league sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter on Wednesday. Williams, 22, was diagnosed with a herniated disk in the lower back after his first practice during rookie minicamp last month and did not practice again. It is unclear if the injury took place before minicamp.
06/06/17 - WR Mike Williams will miss the rest of the team's offseason program due to a mild herniated disk in his lower back, the team announced Tuesday. The first-round pick will miss the team's mandatory minicamp next week and may not be ready for the start of training camp in late July.
03/17/17 - WR Mike Williams (Jr.) elected not to run at the Combine, taking the extra time to train for the drill. He ran his 40-yard dashes on Thursday in the 4.55-4.58 range, depending on the stopwatch.
