Chargers' Mike Williams: Denies reports of season-ending back surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (back) is denying reports that he may need season-ending back surgery, NFL.com's Lakisha Jackson reports. "I'm good. Everything good. The back situation. That was some false information being released," the receiver said Saturday. "I don't know who released it but everything is good."

This confirms earlier reports from NFL.com's Ian Rapoport that while Williams -- who suffered a mild disc herniation in his lower back during rookie minicamp -- was a candidate for surgery a few weeks ago, his situation has improved and that's no longer the case. Going forward, it's likely the Chargers plant their first-round pick on the physically unable to perform list to begin training camp, which begins July 29.

Chargers' Mike Williams: Back issues cloud training camp status
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

While ESPN's Adam Schefter indicates that Williams is a candidate for back surgery, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport relays that such a procedure is currently off the table.

Rapoport notes that back surgery was considered a possibility for the rookie wideout a few weeks ago, but since then Williams has displayed improvement following a second epidural to address a herniated disc in his lower back. The No. 7 overall choice in the 2017 NFL Draft is, however, likely to start training camp on the Chargers' PUP list, per the Los Angeles Times. If that happens, Williams could come off the list at any time during camp. On that front, the Chargers' first practice will be held July 30. Williams' lofty draft status suggests that the team has big plans for the 6-foot-4, 218-pound receiver, but the reality is that the 22-year-old's current back woes have led to him falling behind in terms of gaining reps in the Los Angeles offense. Once Williams is healthy, he'll look to carve out a key role in a wideout corps that also includes Keenan Allen -- who is bouncing back from a torn ACL -- as well as Tyrell Williams, Travis Benjamin and Dontrelle Inman.

Chargers' Mike Williams: Back woes persist, surgery a possibility
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams, who underwent a second epidural to address a herniated disc in his lower back, will likely start training camp on the Chargers' PUP list, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports.

Moreover, ESPN's Adam Schefter ominously notes that the rookie wideout may eventually require a back procedure that would derail the first-rounder's 2017 campaign. Such an outcome is not a lock, and hinges on how well Williams responds to his recent epidural, but until there's added clarity on his status, the 22-year-old wideout is looking like a risky option in fantasy drafts.

Chargers' Mike Williams: Could miss time to open training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (back) may be a candidate for the physically unable to perform list if his injury continues to linger into training camp, ESPN's Eric D. Williams reports.

While the team remains hopeful Williams will be ready for the start of training camp, it seems increasingly likely the No. 7 overall pick in the 2017 Draft could miss time after suffering a mild disk herniation during the first practice of rookie minicamp. With Williams on the mend, look for Tyrell Williams and Travis Benjamin to benefit from the additional practice reps, with the former garnering for the No. 2 WR role behind Keenan Allen.
