Former Clemson standout Mike Williams has been out with back issues during the Chargers offseason program with a disc herniation in his lower back. He is already ruled out for the remainder of training camp as he continues his rehab.

However, according to Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn on Tuesday, Williams has responded to treatment and getting better.

"He’s back on the grass," Lynn said via ESPN. "He’s running. He’s doing well."

The Chargers are hoping that he will be ready for a preseason game so they can get him ready for the regular season.

"We just want him to keep progressing and not have any setbacks," Lynn said. "And we’ll see what happens."

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.
