The Los Angeles Chargers are embracing an offseason move and will be looking to make an impression on their new hometown when the season begins. One of the key pieces to incorporate will be first-round and No. 7 overall pick, wide receiver Mike Williams.

Williams is expected to be a dominate force on the outside benefiting from the veteran passing of quarterback Philip Rivers. However, his recent lower back injury characterized as a mild disc herniation, is keeping Williams off the field.

Originally thought to be missing only a few days, Williams has now been sidelined until training camp at the earliest. According to Eric Williams of ESPN, both new coach Anthony Lynn and Rivers are mildly concerned about his absence.

Any injury, especially to a team’s first-round draft pick can leave a fan base feeling weary. However, after the Chargers suffered through multiple injuries to key players in 2016 the impact is escalated, even in June.

Hopefully, the set back will be a minor one for Williams and he returns at full strength for training camp. If so, the short time missed during OTAs and minicamp will quickly fade. However, if Williams is unable to bounce back and return quickly his absence and the team’s selection choice will be significantly questioned.
