Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said rookie receiver Mike Williams still has back tightness, but he hopes to get the Clemson product back on the field next week: "He's getting behind right now, and we've got to get him back out on the field," Lynn said. "If he wasn't a rookie it would be different. But he has so much to learn, and some of this you can only learn on the field."

Statement from Rams COO Kevin Demoff on the Super Bowl in Los Angeles being moved to 2022: "As work continues on the transformational sports and entertainment district being built at Hollywood Park, we are looking forward to moments such as a grand opening during the Summer of 2020 and the Super Bowl's return to Los Angeles after nearly three decades. In the past week, we have worked with the NFL on the resolution that was presented today and are supportive of the NFL Owners' decision to play Super Bowl LV in Tampa and to have Los Angeles host Super Bowl LVI in 2022. Over the next 90 days, we will continue to work with our partners across the Los Angeles region, including the Chargers, to deliver the elements promised in the bid that was approved last year."

The league has unanimously passed moving Los Angeles' Super Bowl back a year, from 2021 to 2022, according to multiple reports. Tampa now gets it in February 2021. Near-record rainfall in L.A. pushed the opening of the $2.6 billion Rams/Chargers stadium in Inglewood back a year. It will now open in the summer of 2020, and it would've been a little too risky to have a Super Bowl so close to the target date of a new stadium. Have to think Rams and Chargers are just fine with this.

Chargers rookie Mike Williams, the seventh overall pick of the 2017 NFL draft, on if he expects to start on Day 1: "Aw yeah, most definitely. It's going to take hard work. I mean, nothing is going to be like, 'Here you go, Mike. This is your job.' They have the guys they have still there. I just have to go work, learn the offense and just show the coaches and Philip [Rivers] that I'm capable of going out there and playing for them."

Rams COO Kevin Demoff, on the new stadium being delayed until 2020: "Our organization has always taken a long-term approach on the Los Angeles project. This is important to get right. Los Angeles has waited a long time for the NFL to return; they've waited a long time for a world-class stadium. ... What would be a bigger disappointment than pushing back a year is failing to deliver on (Stan Kroenke's) vision."

Current NFL rules prohibit a stadium from hosting a Super Bowl in its inaugural season. With the opening of the Rams/Chargers stadium delayed until 2020, that means owners would have to approve a waiver of the rule to allow Super Bowl LV to be played there as scheduled. There is recent precedent for a Super Bowl-related rules waiver. Owners granted one that requires temperatures to exceed 50 degrees in the month before an open-air Super Bowl to allow NY/NJ to bid for Super Bowl XLVIII.
