Demorrio Williams LB SD Sep 25 '78

Chargers ILB Demorrio Williams (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 15.

With Donald Butler (groin) also sidelined, San Diego will likely turn to a rotation between Bront Bird and Andrew Gatchkar opposite Takeo Spikes. Bird played 19 snaps last week after Williams left the game and recorded six total tackles and an interception. Bird's role in the Chargers base and subpackage defenses is unclear, so owners in IDP leagues are best advised to avoid this situation.

Chargers LB Demorrio Williams is expected to see "sufficient snaps" at inside linebacker.

Per the Union-Tribune San Diego, Williams has "impressed" this offseason. It's unclear how many snaps would be "sufficient," but it's likely more than the 69 Williams saw for the Chiefs last season. Second-year pro Jonas Mouton will be a higher upside backup to Donald Butler and Takeo Spikes at inside linebacker.
