Los Angeles Chargers WR Mike Williams (knee) did not practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 13 versus the Cleveland Browns.

DT Corey Liuget (toe) and PK Nick Novak (back) were limited in practice Friday and are also listed as questionable. C Spencer Pulley (knee) practiced in full for a second straight day Friday and no longer appears on the injury report.

Footballguys view: Hayward was supposed to return to the team today. His brother died in a car accident earlier this week. While this makes football seem small, if Hayward is out this week, Josh Gordon and Corey Coleman stand a better chance of reeling in a deep ball against the Chargers.
