Williams (knee) caught just one of his three targets for three yards in Sunday's 30-13 win over the Redskins.
Williams was hardly utilized given the Chargers raced out to a lead early in the contest. Still it was encouraging to see the 2017 first-round pick get some action after missing essentially the previous two weeks due to a bruised right knee.
Williams (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Redskins.
A bone bruise in Williams' right knee effectively sidelined him for two games, as he played just one snap Thanksgiving Day against the Cowboys before missing last week's win over the Browns. It appears the rookie wideout will be able to avoid a more prolonged absence, as the Chargers cleared him to suit up after he turned in a pair of limited practices and a full session this week. Though Williams will likely split work with Travis Benjamin in three-receiver sets, Benjamin's strong showings the past two weeks could result in Williams settling for the shorter side of the timeshare.
Williams (knee), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Redskins, will play in the contest, a source informed, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Williams was sidelined for the Chargers' Week 13 win over the Browns with a bone bruise in his right knee, but his return to a full practice Friday looks like it will clear the way for him tor rejoin the lineup. The Chargers will likely have the rookie share No. 3 wideout duties with Travis Benjamin.
Williams (knee) was a full practice participant Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Redskins.
Williams' ability to log a full practice Friday on the heels of limited sessions Wednesday and Thursday suggests he should be able to return after missing just one game, though Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said he wants to reevaluate the rookie Saturday before rendering a decision on his status, according to Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com. If cleared to play, Williams will likely play a limited role at receiver, sharing snaps with Travis Benjamin as the No. 3 wideout behind starters Keenan Allen and Tyrell Williams. Williams may not have a shot at receiving significant snaps until 2018.
Williams (knee) will be limited at Wednesday's practice, Jack Wang of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Williams was held out of practice all last week and ruled out two days in advance of Sunday's eventual 19-10 win over the Browns. His return to practice Wednesday suggests his bone bruise has at least partially healed, but the Chargers may want to see the rookie log a full session before clearing him to play in a game. Williams played 55 percent of the snaps on offense against the Bills in Week 11, but his snap count has fallen shy of the 40-percent mark in each of his other five appearances this season.
