Los Angeles Chargers rookie guard Forrest Lamp sustained a torn ACL in his right knee in practice Wednesday, the team announced.

The second-round pick was injured while pulling on a running play during team drills. Lamp, 23, was carted off the field and is expected to miss the 2017 season.

"He was playing so well," Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said after practice. "He was really coming along at that right guard position. He was playing really well, so it will definitely hurt this team."

Injuries are nothing new for the Chargers, who have seen first-round wide receiver Mike Williams plagued by a back injury that will cause him to miss training camp. Los Angeles placed Williams, the No. 7 overall pick in this year's draft out of Clemson, on the physically unable to perform list Saturday before training camp kicked off Sunday.

Kenny Wiggins and rookie third-round selection Dan Feeney likely will see time at right guard in Lamp's absence.
