NFL injury updates, latest league news from Saturday, Dec. 11

The Los Angeles Chargers will have two key players for Sunday’s home game against the Giants.

Wide receiver Mike Williams and cornerback Chris Harris Jr. are on track to play after being placed on the reserve/COVID list this week, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reports, per a source.

Williams and Harris were placed on the reserve/COVID list once being identified as close contacts to WR Keenan Allen, who tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday. Allen was ruled out by coach Brandon Staley on Friday, but the availability of Williams and Harris offers a sigh of relief for L.A. entering Week 14.

Injuries/COVID-19
