Chargers first-round pick Mike Williams to miss training camp with back injury

The Chargers announced Sunday that first-round draft pick Mike Williams is expected to miss all of training camp with his lingering back injury.

The former Clemson wide receiver will instead spend camp trying to rehab the injury.

According to the team release, Mike saw our doctors yesterday and he will continue to progess on Dr. Robert Watkins’ plan. He will rehab and strengthen his back and is not expected to practice during training camp.

Williams suffered a herniated disk in his lower back during the first practice of rookie minicamp in May.

The Chargers had already placed Williams on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list on Saturday.

Williams’ injury has been the source of much speculation this summer, with conflicting reports saying he will, or will not, require surgery to repair the injury.

The Patriots and Colts were both undefeated when they met in Week 9 of the regular season, setting up one of the most anticipated mid-season games in league history. Indianapolis had gotten the best of New England in the previous year’s AFC Championship, but Belichick had reloaded his roster by adding standouts like Moss, Welker, and Donte’ Stallworth in a quest to return to the Super Bowl.

Moss in particular, stood out this Sunday. The Cheap Game Jerseys future Hall of Famer had nine receptions for 145 yards and a touchdown as Brady Cheap Golden State Warriors Jerseys led his team back from a 20-10 fourth quarter deficit to send Indianapolis fans home disappointed.

NBA trade deadline: Paul George not leaving Pacers, Nuggets offered ‘monster deal’ for SF

In the end, the price was just too high.

Multiple teams inquired about Pacers star Paul George, but no one was willing to meet the lofty demands to acquire his services by Thursday’s 3 p.m. ET NBA trade deadline. Now, the four-time All-Star, averaging 22.3 points and 6.2 assists per game, will have to attempt to lead a 29-28 squad the rest of the way without much help other than budding second-year player in Myles Turner (15.6 ppg, 7.2 rpg, 2.1 bpg).

The Celtics and Nuggets were the most aggressive suitors in the race for George, one of the NBA’s best small forwards along with LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Kawhi Leonard, but, in the end, Celtics Legend Larry Birds simply wanted too much to part ways with his talented 27-year-old.

It shouldn’t have taken that, though.

The NBA was trending away from candidates like Ewing. More coaches without head-coaching experience. More without even assistant experience. More without even NBA playing experience. A Hall of Fame center with 14 years on the bench as an assistant? There was no place for him.

His place, as it turns out, is back where he began. Patrick Ewing is a novice head coach who’s as ready for the job as anyone could be.

Not this college job. The one in the NBA that he never got.

For Hinkie, this would be a shocking endpoint; the league has warmed up to his philosophies, and surely any other job would be more appealing. The Sixers are still going Cheap Game Jerseys through “The Process” years later; the Kings, meanwhile, appear to be in the midst of a decadelong ordeal. Without much to trade, and with the rest of league distrustful of the current front office after the Cousins Cheap Green Bay Packers Jerseys trade, free agents will be hesitant to sign with them. The solutions for this franchise aren’t evident.
