The Detroit Lions have activated 2022 first-round draft selection Jameson Williams from the non-football injury list, the team announced Saturday.

Williams will be available for Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, clearing the way for the wide receiver’s NFL debut.

The 21-year-old tore his ACL in the 2022 NCAA National Championship game as a member of the Alabama Crimson Tide.

With a record of 4-8, the Lions sit in second place in the NFC North division.
