According to Rapoport, Williams is expected to be out this week and he’s considered week-to-week moving forward.
The good news, however, is that this isn’t a season-ending issue for Williams and his ACL does not have any damage.
Williams suffered a disc injury in his back this summer that led to him missing training camp and the first four games of the regular season. Los Angeles opted to not place him on the PUP list, even though he missed a good portion of the season.

The contract also has a fifth-year option for the team to consider in 2020.
In 2017, Williams has appeared in six games and caught nine passes for 84 yards receiving and no touchdowns for the Chargers.
