Lions WR Tyrell Williams isn't listed on the Week 1 injury report. He missed some time in late August with a groin injury but is ready for this weekend's opener vs. the 49ers. Williams seems set to open the season as Detroit's clear-cut #1 WR.
The Lions are placing WR Tyrell Williams on IR for the concussion that kept him out of Monday night's game in Green Bay. That means the veteran receiver will miss at least 3 more contests. Quintez Cephus led Detroit wideouts in targets and worked well ahead of the rest of the group in playing time against the Packers. On top of that, he looks like the best player among them to date. Kalif Raymond and rookie Amon-Ra St. Brown checked in close to each other as the 2nd and 3rd WRs in Green Bay, claiming 63% and 60% of the offensive snaps, respectively.
Lions WR Tyrell Williams (concussion) is out for Sunday's game against the Ravens. The early-rule out 10 days after the concussion is concerning. With Williams out last week, Quintez Cephus led Lions WRs with a 90% route rate, followed by Amon-Ra St. Brown at 72%, Kalif Raymond at 64% and Trinity Benson at 44%. Cephus has opened the season with 3-12-1 and 4-63-1 lines and has worked himself onto the WR4 radar.
Lions WR Tyrell Williams (concussion) is out for Monday night's game vs. the Packers. That leaves Kalif Raymond, Amon-Ra St. Brown, Quintez Cephus and Trinity Benson as Detroit's WRs. TE T.J. Hockenson and RBs D'Andre Swift and Jamaal Williams are good bets to again finish as the team's top 3 target-getters.
Lions WR Tyrell Williams (concussion) has yet to practice this week and is unlikely to play vs. the Packers on Monday night. That’ll leave Detroit with some combination of WRs Kalif Raymond, Amon-Ra St. Brown, Quintez Cephus and Trinity Benson. Avoid.
