Los Angeles Chargers cornerback Trevor Williams sprained his ankle during practice Tuesday and will be sidelined for an unspecified period of time, coach Anthony Lynn told reporters.

"I don't think it's bad," Lynn said, according to the Los Angeles Times. "I mean, it's the fourth day of training camp. (Heck), we have coaches around here limping. Coaches are sore, so I can't imagine how the players feel."

Williams sustained the injury as he tried to defend wide receiver Mike Williams on a pass play. He stayed down for several minutes and needed help to reach the medical tent.

The Chargers already faced depth concerns at cornerback after Jason Verrett was lost for the season because of an Achilles tendon injury early in training camp. Williams, a third-year veteran, started 15 games and had two interceptions in 2017.

"If Trevor's ankle is bad, then I would be concerned about the depth there," Lynn said, according to the Times. "But I'm also confident in some of those young guys behind him."
