3. Mike Williams’ injury
This is not any one person’s fault as it is one of those fluke injuries that you cannot really prevent. Still, it is looking increasingly likely that the Chargers will be without Mike Williams for some time and that is a disappointing loss for the team.
The Chargers *knocks on wood* have been fairly healthy this camp compared to previous years so someone could look at Williams being the only one that is hurt and the status of his injury and consider that a win.
However, on the flip side, Williams is entering two really important seasons that will help the Chargers gauge what they want to do at the wide receiver position moving forward and him missing time is not ideal.
At first, his shoulder strain appeared to not be that bad and it seemed likely that he would be able to suit up for the team in Week 1. Now, it is seeming more likely that Williams might miss Week 1 and the team is even preparing to be without him for most of September.
Again, it could be worse and if this is the worst injury-related thing to happen to the Chargers in training camp then that is a huge win, but it is still a big disappointment, especially considering how much unproven talent is behind Williams and Allen in the receiving corps.
The Chargers have to get off to a good start this season and it would be a shame to lose a game to a team like the Cincinnati Bengals — which they should win — because Williams is out.
