Wide receiver Jameson Williams suffered a torn ACL in the College Football National Championship game last January, but that didn't stop the Detroit Lions from drafting him No. 12 overall in April. Unfortunately, that injury meant Williams hasn't yet made his highly-anticipated NFL debut.

Williams did take an important step by returning to the Lions' practice field earlier this month. But fans have been clamoring for his potential debut. Head coach Dan Campbell revealed the rookie's chances of playing in Week 13.

According to Lions insider Kyle Meinke, Williams is a long shot to play against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Dec. 4, per info from Campell. Campbell explained, "I don't want to say it wouldn't happen, but it would take a lot."

This is certainly a disappointing update for Detroit. Williams was one of the most explosive receivers in college football a year ago, posting 1,572 yards on 79 receptions with 15 TDs.

He'll join a Lions' offense on the rise. The team ranks ninth in points per game and eighth in yards per game.
