  Lions | Team down on Tyrell Williams' chances    Thu Sep 16, 01:05 PM

Detroit Lions WR Tyrell Williams (concussion) wasn't at the team's facility Thursday, Sept. 16, as the Lions ramped up preparations for their Week 2 Monday night game against the Green Bay Packers. 'Right now, it doesn't look great,' head coach Dan Campbell said Thursday of Williams' chances of playing Monday. 'But we'll see what tomorrow looks like.'

Footballguys view: The Lions will likely be without Williams this week. That means we could see more from guys like Quintez Cephus, Trinity Benson, Kalif Raymond and Amon-Ra St. Brown on Monday night. If the Packers bounce back...and they should...then the Lions will likely have to go into 'catch up' mode like they did against the 49ers in Week 1.

  Lions | Tyrell Williams in concussion protocol    Mon Sep 13, 02:17 PM

Detroit Lions WR Tyrell Williams (concussion) was placed in the league's concussion protocol Monday, Sept. 13.

Footballguys view: Williams will go through the protocol which may include limited practice participation this week if he responds well. The Lions can turn to guys like Kalif Raymond, Amon-Ra St. Brown, Quintez Cephus and Trinity Benson. However, the offense mainly operates through tight end T.J. Hockenson and running backs D'Andre Swift and Jamaal Williams.

  Lions | Foot injury for Jeff Odukah    Sun Sep 12, 04:05 PM

Detroit Lions CCB Jeff Okudah (foot) suffered a foot injury during the Week 1 game and did not return.

Footballguys view: Okudah's injury might be an achilles tear, which would end his season and take out one of the Lions best defenders. This defense is already near the league's bottom, so we will be targeting the Lions defense every week. Week 2 brings a Monday night game at Green Bay.
