Mario Williams thinks Qualcomm Stadium turf may have caused ankle injury
Mario Williams will miss Sunday’s game against the Rams due to an ankle injury he sustained in Week 10, and the Dolphins defensive end believes San Diego’s turf played a role in his injury.
Williams suffered the injury while chasing Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers last weekend.
“I probably stepped in one of those ruts in the field,” Williams said Friday via the Miami Herald. “It was pretty bad.”
The Chargers have been dissatisfied with the conditions at Qualcomm Stadium and have explored a move to Los Angeles, which seems more possible than ever. Williams’ comments probably will go down into a packet of notes the Chargers maintain to share with their fans about why they need to leave.
Williams, who only has 12 tackles this season, practiced on Friday and was termed questionable for Sunday’s game against the Rams, but he is officially inactive for the game.
