The Detroit Lions have been waiting far longer than some teams to unwrap a huge gift from their 2022 rookie class, but the much-anticipated return is soon to come.

Wideout Jameson Williams is working his way back from his ACL injury and started training for the first time last week. While he missed out on the Thanksgiving Day game, his return is coming very soon.

According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, the Lions will get Williams soon, maybe as early as Week 13 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

“The Lions obviously won’t have rookie WR Jameson Williams today, but as he’s looking to return after tearing his cruciate ligament in college, he’s coming soon. This week wasn’t full speed training, but next week will be. If he gets through unscathed, there’s a good chance he’ll be activated,” Rapoport said wrote.

It always seemed like Williams was more likely to return in December, and that’s been rumored for the Lions since launch. With Rapoport’s comment, that seems to be the case.

In fact, Williams was spotted running tracks on the field before the Thanksgiving game, which was good to see.

Add it up and the Lions will be in good shape to perhaps unlock the best player their rookie class can offer on offense.

When he was drafted, there was some confusion as to what number Williams would wear. He started at 18, which was a nod to Randy Moss, Calvin Johnson, and other elite wideouts the rookie admired.

However, a change came soon after. With Matthew Stafford’s blessing, Williams received the number nine, and given Stafford’s much slower physique, the quarterback poked fun at Williams.

As he explained to the media, Stafford knows Williams will be able to turn things around much quicker.

“One thing he told me is that the nine are going to move a lot quicker,” Williams joked of the conversation with Stafford.

Lions fans are ready to see how much faster the nine can move when Williams finally plays.

As excited as fans seem to be about Williams’ return to the field, Detroit’s wide receivers are also excited about the news.

After the team announced Williams would be returning to practice, Amon-Ra St. Brown was on hand with a big reaction. When he tweeted, he clearly liked the news given the smiling face he posted:

St Brown and Williams could be the next dynamic duo in the league and it’s clear that St Brown understands this, especially when presented with the scenario of Williams’ return.

It will be fun to see this duo get down to business together whenever it happens on the field in the coming weeks. Experts say the Lions will find out just how good Williams can be in the coming weeks.
