The Detroit Lions and their fans have been patiently awaiting this day since the 2022 NFL Draft back in April when they selected Alabama wide receiver Jameson Williams with their first-round pick. The team announced on Monday that Williams is returning to the practice field. This move officially starts the 21-day clock for the rookie wideout to be added to the active roster.

Jameson Williams Injury Update

Williams suffered a torn ACL in the College Football National Championship game back in January, but that never deterred the wide receiver-needy Lions from selecting the uber-talented player.

While the Lions have seen the emergence of Amon-Ra St. Brown as a legitimate receiving threat this season, if Williams is successful in the NFL, they would create quite the dangerous duo.

We don't know exactly when Williams will see the field, but head coach Dan Campbell indicated it will happen sometime after the Lions' Week 12 Thanksgiving game against the Buffalo Bills, where Detroit is a 9.5-point home underdog, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
