The lack of training camp time and the nature of WR Mike Williams’ back injury would seem to make him a candidate to open the regular season on the physically unable to perform list. That would keep him out of action for the first six weeks and coach Anthony Lynn said that the absence may stretch well beyond that point.
“I’m hopeful that it’s not [a season-ending injury], but who knows? It could be,” Lynn said, via the Los Angeles Times.
The team announced on Sunday Williams isn't expected to practice at all during camp due to the back injury he suffered on the first day of rookie minicamp. There was once optimism around the situation after it was announced he wouldn't need surgery, but things now seem to be trending toward the negative for Williams.
