Earlier in the week, Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell told reporters that rookie WR Jameson Williams had a long way to go to play on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. On Friday, prior to the Lions' final practice of the week, Campbell spoke to reporters and he gave the latest update on Williams. According to Dannie Rogers, Campbell said Williams has looked a little better each day this week while working with the scout team. He added that he has not yet made a decision on whether he will play against the Jaguars.
When will we know if Jameson Williams will play?
Williams is currently in the midst of his 21-day practice window, so, the Lions could make a decision at any time if/when he is going to make his debut.
The Lions have been extremely patient and cautious with Williams as he recovered from the ACL injury he suffered 11 months ago. Though he does look to be back to full speed, he really has only had a few practices in almost a year, and it is going to take time for him to gel with QB Jared Goff.
Campbell said he has not yet made a decision on Williams' availability for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, but my best guess is still that he will not make his debut until next week.
