Lions pessimistic about Tyrell Williams playing Monday night

Detroit head coach Dan Campbell says Jeff Okudah was "really coming around" before the cornerback suffered a ruptured Achilles. A noticeably disappointed Campbell shares what he wants Okudah to focus on for next season.

The Lions play on Monday night, which gives wide receiver Tyrell Williams an extra day to clear the concussion protocol before they play the Packers on Monday night, but it doesn’t sound like there’s much hope that he’ll do that.

Lions head coach Dan Campbell said that Williams, who was hurt on a blow to the head from 49ers safety Jaquiski Tartt in the opener, was not at the team’s facility on Thursday and that the outlook for Monday isn’t a positive one.

“Right now, it doesn’t look great,” Campbell said, via Kyle Meinke of

Williams caught two passes for 14 yards before getting hurt. Amon-Ra St. Brown, Kalif Raymond, Trinity Benson, and Quintez Cephus were the other wideouts active for the opener while Tom Kennedy and KhaDarel Hodge were inactive.
