Williams (back) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice.

Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said Wednesday that the team won't make a decision on Williams' Week 6 availability until later in the week -- presumably so it can wait for the rookie wideout log a full practice for the first time. Lynn also mentioned that Williams will be on some type of snap count whenever he makes his NFL debut, Ricky Henne of the Chargers' official site reports. Williams has a real shot to play Sunday against the Raiders, but his path to a high volume of targets is far murkier. There's already a ton of competition for quarterback Philip Rivers' attention, with wideouts Keenan Allen, Tyrell Williams and Travis Benjamin, running back Melvin Gordon and tight ends Hunter Henry and Antonio Gates all offering capable mouths to feed. Even if he weren't on a snap count, Williams likely would have a limited role in his first taste of NFL action.
