After suffering a torn ACL in the 2022 National Championship, Jameson Williams is bound to make his NFL debut soon according to Lions head coach Dan Campbell.

"I would say probably after Thanksgiving," Campbell said. "I don't know if that would be the Jacksonville week or the week after. It won't be this week and I don't see him playing on Thanksgiving. We'll see where it goes, he's progressing and there are no setbacks."

Williams transferred to Alabama from Ohio State prior to the 2021 season, feeling he wasn't going to be a big factor of the Buckeyes wide receiver room, headlined by Chris Olave and Garrett Wilson.

Williams made an immediate impact for the Crimson Tide. While John Metchie III was the target man, Williams was Bryce Young's favorite vertical threat. Williams' impact on the team was apparent, especially when he was out during the Iron Bowl and the national championship.

Despite only catching 79 passes, Williams finished 2021 with 1,572 receiving yards, the fifth most receiving yards in college football. He averaged nearly 20 yards per reception and led Alabama with 15 receiving touchdowns.

The ACL injury has prevented Williams from playing for most of the 2022 NFL season, but the Lions were willing to bear that risk, selecting Williams with the No. 12 pick in the first round.
