The Los Angeles Chargers expect wide receiver Mike Williams to be sidelined at least four weeks with a high ankle sprain, The Athletic reported Wednesday.
Williams was injured during Sunday’s 37-23 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. He was carted to the locker room during the fourth quarter after catching seven passes for 86 yards and a touchdown.
Williams, 28, has 37 catches for 495 yards and three touchdowns on the season. He has helped pick up the slack for Keenan Allen, who had been out since Week 1 with a hamstring injury before returning against the Seahawks.
A first-round draft pick (seventh overall) by the Chargers in 2017, Williams has 264 catches for 4,157 yards and 29 touchdowns in 79 career games (53 starts).
The Chargers (4-3) have a bye in Week 8.
