Update: Williams had x-rays on his back which came back negative, per Ian Rapoport. He will have more tests tomorrow.

Update: Williams had to be helped out to the team bus due to his injury. His status for next week against the Jaguars appears to be very questionable at this time.

Update: Williams had to be carted off the field in Denver. Head coach Brandon Staley will likely face plenty of questions as to why he played his starters, especially Williams, who has had injury trouble all season.

Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams suffered a back injury in the second quarter of Los Angeles’ Week 18 game against the Denver Broncos. He is questionable to return.

The Chargers are locked into the fifth seed in the AFC. Before leaving the field, Williams added four receptions for 32 yards. He is the Chargers’ leading receiver this season as he approaches 900 receiving yards.

L.A. will face the Jacksonville Jaguars in the Wild Card round next weekend. Updates to come.
