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.
