Williams was listed as questionable on the team’s injury report Thursday.
DENVER (AP) — If the NFL insists on calling the first round of the playoffs next week “Super Wild Card Weekend,” then Week 18 was the “Fantastic Frenzied Forerunner” or the “Harrowing Harbinger.”
Brandon Staley is more concerned about the Los Angeles Chargers defense than he is about having a short week to prepare for Saturday night's AFC wild-card matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
After a solid four-game run, the Bolts defense reverted to giving up big plays and struggling to stop the run in their 31-28 loss to the Denver Broncos.
DENVER (AP) — Not even the sight of his leading receiver being carted off the field with an injured back could alter Brandon Staley’s plan.

COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — Brandon Staley is approaching the final week of regular-season practices for the Los Angeles Chargers with a business as usual approach.
What happens in the three hours leading up to Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos though will have a lot of bearing on the Chargers' strategy though.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Los Angeles Chargers tried to keep their postgame playoff celebration private.

COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — Derwin James is on his way back to the Los Angeles Chargers' lineup after returning to practice Thursday.
Joey Bosa isn't there yet, but he must be getting closer.

INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) — Brandon Staley knew it was going to take a complete game for his Los Angeles Chargers squad to have a chance at beating the Miami Dolphins. In front of a prime-time audience, the Bolts responded with one of their best games of the season.

The Chargers said the fifth-year safety didn't participate in practice Wednesday because of a lingering quadriceps injury.

Through 12 games, the returns have been disappointing.
LAS VEGAS (AP) — When the Los Angeles Chargers last came to Las Vegas, a tie would have put them and the Raiders in the playoffs.

With the ball in Tom Brady’s hands, Todd Bowles played it safe and lost. Doug Pederson and Brandon Staley went for broke and celebrated wins.

COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — Brandon Staley was hired as coach of the Los Angeles Chargers in 2021 after coordinating a top-ranked defense with the Los Angeles Rams.

He got very lucky.
