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. have been activated from the reserve/COVID list, clearing their participation for Week 14.

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. this weekend.

The team's top defensive back might not participate, however. Safety Derwin James (hamstring) was added to the injury report Saturday and his status is questionable. The Chargers also placed outside linebacker Kyler Fackrell on IR.
