Chargers’ WR Williams downgraded to out with back fracture

Mike Williams will miss the Los Angeles Chargers’ AFC wild-card round game against the Jacksonville Jaguars due to a lower back fracture. The sixth-year wide receiver was downgraded to out on Friday after further rests. The Chargers said the X-ray on Sunday and an MRI on Monday both were negative and that a rescan Friday morning showed a small transverse process fracture. Williams won’t travel with the team and will remain in Los Angeles to continue receiving treatment. Williams didn’t practice all week after being injured late in the first half of last Sunday’s 31-28 loss at the Denver Broncos.
