Jameson Williams Returns To Practice

The Detroit Lions got a big boost with rookie wide receiver Jameson Williams returning to practice after the Lions traded up in the 2022 NFL draft from pick 32 to pick 12 with the Minnesota Vikings. Williams was considered the best wide receiver in the last draft class but fell due to his college injury.

Activated Williams gives the Lions a 21-day window to practice and see if he is ready to play within that three weeks. The Lions play Thursday for the annual Thanksgiving day game, and it seems unlikely Williams will be activated for it. Williams looks to make his debut the following week versus the Jacksonville Jaguars.

“Are we going to see him on Thursday [Thanksgiving]? Most likely not, but remember: we got somewhat of a half-a-bye week because we have Sunday off; then Jacksonville Jaguars, where I do believe Jameson Williams will make his debut.”

Williams is well known to be one of the fastest players in the NFL, who can open up the Lions’ offense for deep play. The Lions’ offense is top-10 per ESPN, and adding such a dynamic player will make the offense more explosive.

If the Lions can win against the Buffalo Bills, adding Williams to the mix could result in the Lions making a playoff run.
