Chargers' Branden Oliver: Fully healthy following 2016 Achilles injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oliver has fully recovered from the season-ending Achilles injury he suffered during the 2016 preseason, ESPN's Eric Williams reports.

Head coach Anthony Lynn suggested Oliver is back to full health, making all the necessary cuts and jukes during recent OTAs. Where Oliver will fit in the Chargers offense remains to be seen, as the 25-year-old has flashed nimble moves that evoke the since-departed scatbacks such as Danny Woodhead and Darren Sproles. But Oliver also has been a strong runner when healthy, finishing with 582 yards on 160 carries in his rookie season. More than likely, Oliver's role will be to spell workhorse Melvin Gordon while occasionally attributing as a third-down threat out of the backfield, but we'll gain more information as the team trudges towards training camp.

Chargers' Mike Williams: Misses second week of OTAs with back issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams didn't practice for the second consecutive week of OTAs due to back tightness, Eric Williams of ESPN.com reports.

There was some hope that Williams would be able to practice this week after suffering a back injury during the first day of OTAs, but it's now looking like the rookie wideout may not return until the end of May. Both head coach Anthony Lynn and quarterback Philip Rivers expressed concern that the Clemson product was missing valuable practice time, but acknowledged that Williams has plenty of time to get acclimated in the offensive scheme. Fantasy owners may want to monitor the injury situation once training camp arrives, though unless Williams misses an extended amount of time, he still figures to be a focal point of the Chargers offense in 2017.

Chargers' Dontrelle Inman: Expected to join Bolts for camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Inman (abdomen) is expected to be "pretty close" to 100 percent come training camp following core muscle surgery, Jack Wang of The Orange County Register reports.

Given Inman is expected to be sidelined roughly six weeks following the surgery, it seems likely the 28-year-old will be able to recover in time for training camp. That being said, Inman's fantasy value is already in limbo after the team drafted Mike Williams with the No. 7 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, and he could find himself even further down the depth chart should he miss more time than expected.

Chargers' Jason Verrett: Held out of practice Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Verrett (knee) did not participate in practice Tuesday, ESPN's Eric Williams reports.

Verrett is still looking to make a full recovery from the torn ACL he suffered one season ago. The expectation is that he should be available in time for the regular season, but how much practice exposure he'll receive before then seems to be in limbo.

Chargers' Casey Hayward: Sidelined during Tuesday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hayward (ankle) did not practice Tuesday, Eric Williams of ESPN reports.

It looks as if Hayward could be out a little while longer as he rehabs from his ankle injury. The Chargers aren't going to rush him back onto the field yet, with regular season implications in mind.
