WR Mike Williams may need season-ending back surgery

Mike Williams Injury The Latest To Prove Chargers Wide Receivers Are Cursed

According to a report from NFL Insider Adam Schefter, the rookie may undergo surgery to fix a herniated disk that would ultimately put him on the shelf for the entire 2017 season.

Williams received a second epidural on his herniated disk with the hope he will recover in time to participate in training camp. "'This may be a lot more serious than people thought, ' said one source familiar with the injury". But Schefter reported the team understands there's a "real chance" he could be forced to sit out his rookie campaign.

If Williams is indeed out for the season, that is good news for Tyrell Williams.

The team is unsure where Williams picked up the injury. He came back strong last season and was pivotal in the Tigers winning the title, totaling 1,361 yards on 98 receptions with 13 touchdowns. First round pick Mike Williams is suffering from a herniated disc, which he suffered in rookie mini camp, and could possibly start the season on the Pup list or even miss his entire rookie season. The Chargers don't know when Williams suffered the injury.

After relocating to Los Angeles, the Chargers now rank as the No. 36 most valuable sports franchise in the world, per Forbes. Such an outcome is not a lock, and hinges on how well Williams responds to his recent epidural, but until there's added clarity on his status, the 22-year-old wideout is looking like a risky option in fantasy drafts.

Williams was drafted seventh overall by the San Diego Chargers.
