Chargers WR Mike Williams out for season, HC Brandon Staley has no regrets

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams is reportedly expected to miss the next two to three weeks with a fracture in his back, according to Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.

Williams, 28, suffered a back injury in the season finale, a game against the Denver Broncos that did not affect the team's playoff position.

Barring a Super Bowl run, the small, nonsurgical fracture in the receiver's back has virtually ended his season.

Even if the Chargers do move past the Jacksonville Jaguars, they would face the Kansas City Chiefs in the next round of the postseason.

Williams has likely played his final game this year, but head coach Brandon Staley doesn't seem to be bothered.

Staley, 40, spoke to the press on Thursday about playing Williams in a game that seemingly did not matter.

"It's difficult to decide who plays and who doesn't and who is more valuable than the rest," Staley said. "What you are trying to do is set a standard for your program about how you do things.

"That is what I believe in, and I didn't want anybody to get hurt in [the game], regardless of their status, because everybody is important."

Chargers visit the Jaguars on Saturday in their first NFL playoffs appearance since 2018.
