Injury Update On Lions 2022 1st-Round Draft Pick

The Detroit Lions have yet to see their 1st-round selection in this year's draft play a regular season NFL game.

Lions head coach Dan Campbell said that he expects wide receiver Jameson Williams to be designated for a return from the injured reserve at some point after Thanksgiving, making Week 13 against the Jacksonville Jaguars his earliest possible return date.
Campbell also said that it's a possibility that Williams practices before Thanksgiving, but that he doesn't expect him to, let alone play Nov. 24 against the Buffalo Bills.

Eric Woodyard of ESPN reports that Campbell said either Week 13 or 14 are more realistic targets for the rookie to make his debut, who the Lions have been extra cautious in rushing back from his ACL tear. 

The twenty-one-year-old was the 12th-overall selection in the 2022 NFL Draft.
