Jameson Williams is now on the Detroit Lions active roster. He will likely make his long-awaited NFL debut for the Detroit Lions Sunday at Ford Field.
With activating Williams, the Lions are adding an explosive talent to their wide receivers group. Lions WRs Amon-Ra St. Brown, DJ Chark and Josh Reynolds have each missed at least one game this season.
Since suffering a torn ACL in January (while playing in the national championship game for Alabama), Williams has spent the majority of the subsequent 11 months rehabbing and observing practice from the sidelines. In his final year at Alabama, he caught 79 passes for 1,572 yards and 15 touchdowns. Additionally, he notched two kick return touchdowns.
