Chargers Wide Receiver Misses Another Practice

The Los Angeles Chargers enjoyed almost a quarter of healthy play from their two star pass catchers in their Week 11 30-27 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, but it was apparently too good to be true. Wide receiver Mike Williams missed his second straight practice on Thursday, casting into doubt his availability for Sunday's matchup with the Arizona Cardinals. Williams reaggravated an ankle injury six snaps into Sunday's game. He had missed the Chargers previous two games due to a high-ankle sprain suffered in a Week 7 37-23 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Williams has taken on a larger role with the Chargers this year due to the consistent unavailability of wide receiver Keenan Allen. Allen missed all but 45 snaps across the first 10 weeks of the season with a lingering hamstring injury. As a result, Williams leads the team this year with 510 receiving yards in his eight appearances.

Williams and Allen formed one of the league's deadliest receiving tandems in 2021, combining for 2284 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns while leading the Chargers to the league's fifth-ranked scoring offense. Williams' exceptional play earned him a three-year, $60 million deal earlier this year.
