  • Lions' Jameson Williams: Facing limited snaps in debut

    Williams (knee), who was activated from the reserve/non-football injury list Saturday, is expected to be on a "very limited snap count" in his NFL debut Sunday against the Jaguars, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    The Lions envision the No. 12 overall pick in this year's draft filling a major role on offense over the long haul, but he'll be eased back into the mix Sunday after having suffered a torn ACL during his final collegiate game at Alabama back in January. Amon-Ra St. Brown, Kalif Raymond and DJ Chark are likely to continue serving as Detroit's main three receivers this week, but Williams should have a decent chance at jumping Raymond and Chark on the depth chart by season's end if he remains free of setbacks with his knee while he gradually ramps up his snap count in the weeks to come.

  • Lions' Julian Okwara: Lands on IR

    The Lions placed Okwara (elbow) on injured reserve Saturday.

    Okwara was forced out with an elbow injury during Detroit's loss to the Bills on Thanksgiving Day, and he was already ruled out for Sunday's game versus Jacksonville. The 24-year-old defensive end will now be forced to sit out until at least Week 17 against Chicago, though it's possible he could remain sidelined for the rest of the regular season. In his absence, Josh Paschal and John Cominsky will likely take on bigger roles behind Aidan Hutchinson and Romeo Okwara, who was activated from the reserve/PUP list Saturday.

  • Lions' Romeo Okwara: Returns to active roster

    The Lions activated Okwara (Achilles) from the reserve/PUP list Saturday.

    Okwara suffered a season-ending torn Achilles in October of 2021, and he was placed on the reserve/PUP list ahead of this regular season. The 27-year-old recorded 44 tackles and a team-high 10 sacks over 16 games in 2020, so he should immediately step up into a prominent role opposite rookie Aidan Hutchinson moving forward.

  • Lions' Jameson Williams: Set for debut

    Williams (knee) was activated off the reserve/non-football injury list Saturday and is expected to play in Sunday's matchup against the Jaguars, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    It's unclear how much Williams will actually play as the Lions are arguably the healthiest they've been all season at wide receiver, but given the team was pressed against a deadline with this activation, there's clearly some plan to involve the Alabama product. The rookie receiver hasn't played since tearing his ACL back in November, but when healthy he could be regarded as one of the more electric playmakers in the entire league. Expect Williams to easily gain a foothold on a top-three WR spot once he's eventually deemed capable of commanding a full snap share.

  • Lions' Jonah Jackson: Back in action

    Jackson has no injury designation for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

    Jackson missed the Lions' Week 12 matchup against Buffalo with a concussion. However, he practiced in full Friday and has cleared concussion protocol, putting him in line to return to his typical role as Detroit's starting left guard.

  • Lions' Julian Okwara: Ruled out with elbow injury

    Okwara (elbow) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

    Okwara exited the Lions' Week 12 matchup against the Bills with the injury. He failed to practice in any capacity and is in line to miss his second contest of the season. In 10 games on the campaign, Okwara has recorded 17 total tackles with two sacks.

  • Lions' Evan Brown: Set for second consecutive absence

    Brown (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

    Brown couldn't log any practice participation throughout the week, so it's not a surprise to see him ruled out. He's now set for his second consecutive absence. Kayode Awosika is likely to step in at right guard in Brown's absence.

  • Lions' Josh Paschal: Slated to play Sunday

    Paschal (knee) doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

    Paschal missed the last two games due to a knee injury and was limited at practice Wednesday and Thursday this week. However, he practiced fully Friday and will be able to return to action against Jacksonville.

  • Lions' Jeff Okudah: Doesn't carry injury designation

    Okudah (concussion) doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

    Okudah was limited at practice Wednesday and Thursday but was given the green light to play Sunday after he practiced fully Friday. Over his last five appearances, he's logged 29 tackles (26 solo), an interception, a forced fumble and two pass defenses.

  • Lions' Jameson Williams: Uncertain for Sunday

    Coach Dan Campbell said Friday morning that the Lions hadn't made a decision on Williams (knee) for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

    Campbell said Monday it would be a "tall order" for Williams to play, but the Lions apparently are considering it...or at least giving their opponent that impression. The rookie returned to practice last Monday and is now almost 11 months removed from his ACL tear, so it won't be too surprising if he's activated from injured reserve Friday or Saturday to play in Sunday's game. If not, Williams' next chances to play will be Week 14 against Minnesota and Week 15 at the Jets. He'll likely be a part-time player for at least his first game, competing for perimeter snaps with DJ Chark, Kalif Raymond and Josh Reynolds.
