Detroit Lions Jameson Williams Will Not Practice Wednesday due to….

The Detroit Lions will not have one of their top young wideouts at practice Wednesday, ahead of their Week 18 contest against the Minnesota Vikings. 

Jameson Williams had to leave the game against the Cowboys after injuring his ankle on a 60-yard plus completion in the second half. 

Following his stellar play, Williams celebrated but was noticeably hobbled following the deep completion. 

Throughout the season, the speedy wideout has developed rapport with quarterback Jared Goff. 

After his suspension was reduced to a total of four games, Williams has put in the extra work in practice and has been rewarded with more targets in Ben Johnson’s offense. 

Against Dallas, Detroit’s second-year wideout recorded two receptions and 69 yards. 

Both Williams and rookie tight end Sam LaPorta were reportedly observed leaving the game with heavy limps. 

LaPorta will be available to practice this week, as Campbell reiterated the talented tight end is “good” this week and should be expected to suit up against the Vikings in the season finale at Ford Field.  

Detroit’s third-year head coach indicated he expects to play his starters this week, as the team still has the opportunity to secure the No. 2 seed in the NFC. 

Detroit needs both the Cowboys and Eagles to lose and must secure their 12th victory of the season to end up moving up one position in the playoff standings. 

While it is likely Detroit will end the 2023 regular season as the No. 3 seed, Campbell and the coaching staff want the young roster to still compete and fight for the highest seed possible.
