Chargers Coach Anthony Lynn Seems Worried About First Round Pick WR Mike Williams

Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn sounded a tiny bit concerned about his first ever first-round pick Mike Williams in Los Angeles, who injured his back two weeks ago and still remains sidelined during organized team activities, Conor Orr of NFL.com reports.

“I’d like to see him out there next week because he’s getting behind right now, and we’ve got to get him back out on the field,” Lynn said, via ESPN.com. “If he wasn’t a rookie it would be different. But he has so much to learn, and some of this you can only learn on the field.”

Added Philip Rivers: “Obviously, it’s nothing he can’t catch up on. But this to me is valuable time, especially at his position. With all of the things we ask for from our receivers formation-wise and all of the things we do like no-huddle, it would be good for him to be out there doing this.”

Each year we seem to have at least one frustrating, nagging injury to a potentially explosive skill position rookie with vastly different outcomes. At this point a few years ago, then-Giants head coach Tom Coughlin was agonizing over a recurring hamstring injury in Odell Beckham that eventually cost him a few games of his rookie season.
