Chargers WR Mike Williams suffered torn ACL in win over Vikings, out for rest of 2023 season

The Los Angeles Chargers will be without a huge piece of their offense for the balance of the 2023 campaign.

An MRI confirmed wide receiver Mike Williams suffered a torn ACL in Sunday's 28-24 win in Minnesota and will miss the remainder of the 2023 season, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday, per a source.

The big-play receiver suffered the injury late in the third quarter of Sunday's game against the Vikings when he got twisted down after an 11-yard WR screen. Williams could barely put any weight on the leg before he was carted to the locker room.

The injury came after a massive day for Williams. He'd caught seven passes for 121 yards and a trick-play TD on a pass from Keenan Allen before exiting.

With Williams lost for the season, pressure will now shift to first-round rookie Quentin Johnston and Josh Palmer to fill the void. In his first three games, Johnston has caught five passes for 26 yards.
