Dan Campbell: It would be a tall order for Jameson Williams to play this week

Lions first-round pick Jameson Williams began practicing with the team last week and that development created some excitement about the wide receiver’s long-awaited debut in the team’s lineup.

That excitement may need to be managed for a little while longer. Lions head coach Dan Campbell said at a Monday press conference that it will be a tall order for Williams to get the green light to play against the Jaguars in Week 13.

Campbell gave the same outlook for edge rusher Romeo Okwara, who returned to practice a couple of weeks ago. Okwara is recovering from a torn Achilles while Williams tore his ACL during his final game at Alabama.

Campbell did say he’s optimistic about cornerback Jeff Okudah and guard Jonah Jackson back after they missed last Thursday’s loss to the Bills with concussions.

  1. Imagine drafting a thin, skinny kid in the top 10 of a draft whose durability is already in question?

    ———–
    Imagine being such a useless tool you cant even make a truthful statement about where someone was drafted

  3. It would be an even taller order if you could get Campbell not to blow games in the final few minutes…..

  4. Seeing as how the other two outside WR’s Chark and Reynolds did versus the Bills (2 catches for 16 yards), how much worse could he be?

  5. Leave the kid to his rehab and have him 100% healthy for 2023.
    That was a nasty knee injury. It looked as bad as So Carolina Marcus Lattimore knee injury several years ago.

  6. I like the player here and I like the coach here but Detroit isn’t the kind of team that can wait a year on a first round pick. Could have used an able body in 2022 and gotten them a year of experience already.
