LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles Chargers reportedly received some bad news on Monday.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported an MRI revealed wide receiver Mike Williams suffered a torn ACL and will miss the remainder of the 2023 season.
This is heartbreaking news for the Chargers who just won their first game of the season following a showdown against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.

Williams, 28, had seven catches for 121 years and one touchdown in Sunday’s victory.
Quarterback Justin Herbert still has No. 1 target Keenan Allen and the Chargers' Joshua Palmer and Quentin Johnston may see more playing time in Williams’ absence.
