If you are still hoping that the Chargers can turn things around, then this is the tweet that you’ve been waiting for!
Sure, it’s a bit cryptic, but Mike Williams, the #7 overall pick of the 2017 NFL draft, feels that he is ready for action (via Jack Wang in the OC Register):
“I’m expecting to play,” Williams said. “I’m gonna practice hard, go through all the plays. Whatever decision the coaches make, I’m going to be ready for it.”
His entrance does not necessarily come at a surprise—when he complained about back issues after the first day of training camp, most realized that trouble was coming. The Chargers ruled him out 8 weeks later due to a mild disc herniation during Training Camp. Back issues are no joke, and the Chargers did do the right thing by limiting his snaps immediately and eventually pulling Williams from practice entirely.
