The San Diego Chargers announced on Saturday that 2017 first-round pick Mike Williams was placed on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list.
Williams has been out with back issues during the Chargers offseason program with a disc herniation in his lower back. However, according to Chargers officials, Williams has responded to treatment and should be ready at some point in training camp.
In 2016, Williams was the Clemson team leader in receptions (98), receiving yards (1,361) and receiving touchdowns (11) for Clemson's second national championship team.
Williams compiled 177 receptions for 2,727 yards and 21 touchdowns in 1,871 snaps over 42 games (30 starts) during his collegiate career. He is third in Clemson history in receiving touchdowns, fourth in receiving yards and fifth in receptions.
