Mike Williams may not miss the entire 2017 season after all
The Los Angeles Charger’s 7th overall pick may not need season ending surgery, as reported by Ian Rapoport via his Twitter handle @RapSheet.
Williams – the 2nd receiver selected in the 2017 NFL Draft – will be monitored closely by the training staff. Expect the Chargers to be safe and cautious with their rookie pass catcher.
Williams was drafted with some injury concerns due to suffering a neck fracture in Clemson’s 2015 season opener. He would miss the remainder of the year, but would come back strong in 2016 – garnering a lot of attention as potentially the best Wide Receiving threat in the draft.
If the severity of Williams injury is not as major as initially reported – and his recovery is on the right track – this could be a small hiccup leading into his rookie season.
Expect Williams to bounce back from injury as he has done so before.

Hello Sports Fan Entertainment Readers and Followers! My name is Brandon Morales and I - like a lot of you reading this - love sports. Sports consume me. For me, writing about sports is an art. The words used have to paint a picture for the reader. My goal is to put all my sports knowledge to use and SFE is the perfect platform.
Football is my favorite sport. I'm a fan of the Tennessee Titans - since the Houston Oilers days. I also am a fan of the Texas Longhorns - Hook 'Em Horns, baby! I'm also an NBA fan, and am loyal to the Purple and Gold. Lakeshow! I'm new to the Hockey world - as I watched Hockey closely for the first time this past summer. I'm a Nashville Predators fan and look forward to watching them compete for the Stanley Cup this upcoming season.
I also like MMA. Eventually, as SFE grows, I will write a lot about big fights, rising stars, fighters past their prime, etc. But that will be later down the road.
I covered High School Sports during my Junior/Senior year in High School after injuries to both my leg and back prevented me from playing sports. I became a published author for a local newspaper and couldn't believe I was getting paid to write about what I love.
Initially, I had planned to pursue a career in Journalism. I changed my mind, and instead earned my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from New Mexico State University. I began my career working with youth in a Juvenile Corrections facility and utilized my degree to work and help mentor at risk teens. An injury helped me rediscover my passion for writing about sports, and I am grateful to MJ for providing me with the opportunity to share some of my work with sports fans around the world.
Thank you to all readers of SFE and look forward to writing more and more!
