  • Lions' Jameson Williams: Tiny role in pro debut

    Williams was targeted once but did not catch a pass during Sunday's 40-14 win over the Jaguars.

    After talk of Williams potentially seeing time on special teams in his professional debut, the rookie was contained to just eight snaps on offense. Meanwhile, Amon-Ra St. Brown and DJ Chark each had their way with the Jaguars secondary in the blowout victory, giving the Lions no reason to rush Williams into heavy snaps. With that said, there is no denying the dynamic element that Williams could bring to the table as a third receiver in Detroit's offense, so look for Williams' role to only grow as the season goes on. Next up is a Week 14 matchup with a beatable Vikings secondary.

  • Lions' Jameson Williams: Expected to have special-teams role

    Williams (knee) will be eased into the Lions' offensive game plan in Sunday's game against the Jaguars and may also see some work as a gunner on special teams, Jay Glazer reported on "Fox NFL Sunday."

    The Lions' decision to expose a key asset like Williams to special-teams coverage under any circumstance is puzzling, especially as he makes his season debut following an 11-month recovery from a torn ACL. Don't expect Williams to remain a contributor on coverage units for long, as the Lions eventually plan to have him as a full-time player on offense.

  • Lions' Jameson Williams: Set for debut

    Williams (knee) was activated off the reserve/non-football injury list Saturday and is expected to play in Sunday's matchup against the Jaguars, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    It's unclear how much Williams will actually play as the Lions are arguably the healthiest they've been all season at wide receiver, but given the team wasn't pressed against a deadline with this activation, there's clearly some plan to involve the Alabama product. The rookie receiver hasn't played since tearing his ACL back in November, but when healthy he could be regarded as one of the more electric playmakers in the entire league. Expect Williams to easily gain a foothold on a top-three WR spot once he's eventually deemed capable of commanding a full snap share.

  • Lions' Jameson Williams: Facing limited snaps in debut

    Williams (knee), who was activated from the reserve/non-football injury list Saturday, is expected to be on a "very limited snap count" in his NFL debut Sunday against the Jaguars, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    The Lions envision the No. 12 overall pick in this year's draft filling a major role on offense over the long haul, but he'll be eased back into the mix Sunday after having suffered a torn ACL during his final collegiate game at Alabama back in January. Amon-Ra St. Brown, Kalif Raymond and DJ Chark are likely to continue serving as Detroit's main three receivers this week, but Williams should have a decent chance at jumping Raymond and Chark on the depth chart by season's end if he remains free of setbacks with his knee while he gradually ramps up his snap count in the weeks to come.

  • Lions' Jameson Williams: Uncertain for Sunday

    Coach Dan Campbell said Friday morning that the Lions hadn't made a decision on Williams (knee) for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

    Campbell said Monday it would be a "tall order" for Williams to play, but the Lions apparently are considering it...or at least giving their opponent that impression. The rookie returned to practice last Monday and is now almost 11 months removed from his ACL tear, so it won't be too surprising if he's activated from injured reserve Friday or Saturday to play in Sunday's game. If not, Williams' next chances to play will be Week 14 against Minnesota and Week 15 at the Jets. He'll likely be a part-time player for at least his first game, competing for perimeter snaps with DJ Chark, Kalif Raymond and Josh Reynolds.

  • Lions' Jameson Williams: Week 13 return not likely

    Lions head coach Dan Campbell said Monday that it "would be a tall order" for Williams (knee) to play Sunday against the Jaguars, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Though Campbell hasn't completely closed the door on the possibility of Williams -- who returned to practice last Monday -- being activated from the reserve/non-football injury list ahead of the contest, a potential Week 14 return is a more realistic outcome for the rookie wideout. In the meantime, Amon-Ra St. Brown, DJ Chark and Kalif Raymond are in line to continue to lead the Lions' wideout corps, with Josh Reynolds and Tom Kennedy mixing in.

  • Lions' Jameson Williams: Nearing return, but not ready yet

    Williams (knee) will not be activated from the reserve/non-football injury list for Thursday's contest against the Bills, but he could make his season debut as early as Week 13, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Detroit designated Williams for a return to practice Monday, but the rookie first-round pick hasn't yet gone full-speed during drills and never seemed like a realistic candidate to play Thanksgiving Day. Williams is on track to ramp up to a full practice workload next week, and it sounds as though as long as he avoids any setbacks, he could make his NFL debut as early as Dec. 4 versus the Jaguars. On a bright note for Thanksgiving Day, Josh Reynolds (back) is expected to be available for the Lions, per Rapoport.
