Ian Rapoport previously reported that Williams is dealing with a torn labrum in his shoulder, but was going to attempt to play through the injury after rehabbing for a few weeks.
This should open the door for some Raiders’ receivers like rookie Bryan Edwards to see more opportunities.
Williams, 28, wound up signing on with the Chargers as an undrafted free agent out of Western Oregon back in 2015. He managed to make the Chargers’ 53-man roster as a rookie and later returned to Los Angeles on a one-year restricted tender worth $2.914 million for the 2018 season.
From there, Williams agreed to a four-year, $44 million contract with $22 million guaranteed from the Raiders last year.
In 2019, Williams appeared in 14 games for the Raiders and caught 42 passes for 651 yards receiving and six touchdowns.
