The Los Angeles Chargers are quickly running out of weapons on offense. In addition to not having Melvin Gordon and Hunter Henry for the foreseeable future, the team could also be without Mike Williams in Week 2.
Williams had a nice season with the Chargers in 2018, hauling in 43 passes for 664 yards and 10 touchdowns. He formed a nice duo on the outside with Keenan Allen.
Following the season opener for the Chargers, Williams told the training staff that his knee felt sore. Although his long-term status isn’t in jeopardy, the former Clemson star might miss this weekend’s game.
Los Angeles released its status report for this Sunday against Detroit. Williams is one of seven players that is listed as questionable.

It’s likely that Williams’ status won’t be announced until Sunday morning.
Losing another playmaker isn’t ideal for the Chargers, but the team has proven it can overcome injuries in the past. Phillip Rivers should keep his team within striking distance of the Lions even without a few of his main weapons.
The priority for Los Angeles is keeping Williams healthy for the majority of the season, which means the coaching staff could take a cautious approach with the former first-round pick.
Los Angeles and Detroit will battle at 1 p.m. ET from Ford Field on Sunday.
