Jameson Williams, a rookie receiver for the Lions who tore his ACL while playing for Alabama in the College Football National Championship Game, is hopeful that he will be ready to play on opening day despite the injury. However, the Lions have no plans to rush him back onto the field.

Lions GM Brad Holmes told ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler that the team won’t start Williams in Week 1 and will instead stress patience.

Holmes declared, “We’re going to be very smart with him.” “He’s doing well at the moment.”

Because of his high potential in the long run, the Lions moved up in the first round to select Williams. They don’t want to risk his knee in the short term, so it could be a while before Lions fans get to see him play.

No, the Lions have no plans to use Jameson Williams. Pro Football Talk featured the Week 1 article first.
