AFC Notes: Chargers, Raiders, Texans



Chargers second-year WR Mike Williams tells USA Today that his rookie year didn’t go as he was hoping it would after dealing with injuries.

“It was a bad year. I’ll be the first one to tell you it was not what I expected,” Williams said. “I tried to come out here and play, tried to make some plays. But I couldn’t do what Mike Williams is known for. I wasn’t able to move my body how I wanted to move it. “

Williams added that he’s now working to earn the trust of his teammates and coaching staff.

“It was hard not being out here while the guys were working,” Williams said. “You have to wait your turn. (Quarterback) Philip (Rivers) already had his weapons who he is used to throwing the ball to. I mean, now I just have to come out here and earn that trust.”

  • Michael Gehlken mentions that Raiders’ first-round OT Kolton Miller had some “assignment confusion” during Wednesday’s practice and allowed third-round DE Arden Key to go unblocked.
  • Despite the mistake, Gehlken adds that the Raiders have tested Miller a lot this offseason and has shown flashes of success.


Texans QB Deshaun Watson said he is on-track with his recovery from a torn ACL and has recently been able to do more workouts on the field.

The knee is doing good,” Watson said, via Sarah Barshop of ESPN. “I’m able to do some things on the field with the team, physical-wise. For the nine-week goal that we put in from the beginning, I’m pretty much where I want to be. I’m kinda past it inside in the weight room, mentally, and also on the field. So everything’s going smoothly right now.”
