Jameson Williams suffers injury, collapses on field at Detroit Lions training camp
The Detroit Lions are currently holding a joint practice against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and according to multiple reports, Lions wide receiver Jameson Williams has suffered an injury. According to Kyle Meinke of MLive, “Williams just pulled up holding his right hamstring on a bomb, then collapsed on the field. Being evaluated now.”
Update: Meinke just tweeted that Williams is now walking under his own power to the Lions' locker room.
Why It Matters
This is obviously a great sign, but it will be interesting to find out if the injury will hold him out of tomorrow's joint practice, and/or Saturday's preseason game against the Jaguars. Lions head coach Dan Campbell has said time and time again how important it is for JAMO to get as many reps as possible during training camp, so hopefully, this does not keep the young wide receiver sidelined.
Bottom Line: Hoping for the best
Jameson Williams' potential hamstring injury during the Lions-Jaguars joint practice raises concerns about his participation in upcoming sessions and the preseason game. While he was able to walk off the field independently, the significance of the injury remains unclear. Given Coach Campbell's emphasis on Williams' training camp involvement, the Lions will undoubtedly be monitoring his situation closely.
