|Chargers cornerback Trevor Williams injured his leg during the fourth practice of training camp Tuesday Youth Mikko Koivu Jersey , potentially dealing another blow to Los Angeles' depth in the defensive secondary. But coach Anthony Lynn is cautiously optimistic that his team's latest injury isn't serious.
Williams was hurt while defending receiver Mike Williams in a red zone drill. Trevor Williams had to be helped off the field by teammate Jahleel Addae.
After getting attention from the training staff, he left Jack Hammett Sports Complex on crutches with his left foot in a walking boot.
The injury and Williams' reaction to it were foreboding, but Lynn was hopeful he hasn't lost his starting cornerback for an extended period.
"You're holding your breath there," Lynn said. "I think he sprained his ankle, but I don't think it's bad. I mean, it's the fourth day of training camp. Hell, we have coaches around here limping. Coaches are sore, so I can't imagine how the players feel."
After the Chargers' history with catastrophic injuries in the past few seasons, Lynn won't exhale until Williams undergoes further tests.
The Chargers are a popular pick to earn a playoff spot this fall, but they already incurred serious injuries to two potential key contributors before training camp even began.
Los Angeles lost starting tight end Hunter Henry to a knee injury on a non-contact drill in May. The Chargers then lost long-injured former Pro Bowl cornerback Jason Verrett to a torn Achilles tendon during a conditioning test last week.
Verrett's most recent injury occurred at the brink of his comeback after missing most of the past two seasons. His newest setback "broke a lot of our hearts Jonathan Ericsson Jersey ," Pro Bowl cornerback Casey Hayward said.
But Verrett's absence wasn't a disaster for the Chargers last season because of the surprising emergence of Williams, who stepped into a key role after catching on with the Chargers in 2016 as an undrafted free agent from Penn State.
Williams started five games as a rookie, and he started 15 more games last season opposite Hayward in the Chargers' opportunistic defensive secondary. He made the first two interceptions of his career along with 56 tackles and generally provided outstanding coverage.
"He'll bounce back," defensive tackle Brandon Mebane said of Williams. "Trevor is a great professional, and you know he's going to do whatever he can to get right back on the field. We're just going to wait on him and be patient."
The Bolts have been forced to do that quite a bit during Mebane's tenure. They lost a staggering number of man-games to injuries in San Diego during their final two seasons, which were also the worst two seasons of Philip Rivers' 12-year tenure as their starting quarterback. Fans who followed the Chargers from San Diego to LA already know the Bolts went 5-11 in 2016 after losing Verrett, cornerback Brandon Flowers, linebacker Manti Te'o, receivers Keenan Allen and Stevie Johnson and running back Danny Woodhead for extended periods.
Even after losing Verrett last week, the Chargers' secondary is fairly well stocked. Desmond King played extensively as a rookie last season Kyle Okposo Jersey , primarily as a nickel back, while first-round pick Derwin James is expected to be an immediate contributor at safety alongside Addae, who started all 16 games last season.
"If Trevor's ankle is bad, then I would be concerned about the depth there," Lynn said. "But I'm also confident in those young guys behind him. They're stepping up and making plays in practice, and there's going to be a nice competition in that group."
You’ll hear a lot of hype and hyperbole today about the new Aaron Rodgers deal, focusing on the new-money analysis that pegs the value at $33.5 million per year. But remember that Rodgers had two years left on his existing contract; the four-year extension makes it a six-year deal.
Based on the $39.8 million in salary and $1 million in workout bonuses Rodgers was already due to earn (I’ve left out the per-game roster bonuses), the base value of his new contract (if former teammate James Jones’ report of four years, $33.5 million per year are accurate) becomes six years, $174.8 million.
That’s a total value of $29.1 million per year Kailer Yamamoto Jersey , which definitely puts Rodgers at the top of the heap when it comes to total value at signing, $900,000 per year north of Matt Ryan‘s contract. (Ryan has a new-money average $30 million per year.) Rodgers also will get, from signing, only $1.1 million more per year in total value than the contract signed by Kirk Cousins.
Of course, Rodgers has committed for six years, and Cousins will hit the market again in three. Which, like the Sammy Watkins–Odell Beckham comparison from Tuesday, arguably gives Cousins the better overall deal. He’ll make $84 million over the next three years (fully guaranteed) and then he’ll step up to the trough again in 2021, needing $90.8 million over three years to match Rodgers’ six-year value.
Rodgers also has $100 million guaranteed (as usual http://www.officialoilers.com/authentic-adidas-connor-mcdavid-jersey , the initial reports don’t point out the critical difference between full guarantee and injury-only guarantee). But Ryan also has $100 million in guarantees, and all of that is as a practical matter fully guaranteed.
Bottom line? The Rodgers, Ryan, and Cousins numbers are close enough to prompt the same kind of reaction to Beckham’s deal: Definitely not fully reflective of Rodgers’ overall value to the team. For all the talk about creative structures and flexibility and whatnot, Rodgers did a fairly straightforward deal that ties him to the Packers for six seasons, and that gives him no apparent vehicle for avoiding the inevitability that someone eventually will be making more than $29.1 million per year at signing and/or more than $33.5 million per year in new money.
Or that, come 2023, a not-top-10 quarterback who consistently bet on himself will have made significantly more over the same six years than one of the greatest quarterbacks who ever played the game.
