Lions receiver Jameson Williams all smiles while idled by ACL rehab

Allen Park — Immediately after he was drafted by the Detroit Lions, wide receiver Jameson Williams showed little emotion in an interview with the NFL Network, and he was similarly subdued the next day at his introductory press conference at the team’s practice facility.

Human nature being what it is, it left many fans speculating Williams was unhappy to have been drafted by the Lions.

Williams laughed off that suggestion in an interview with Complex Sports the following week, blaming his low energy on celebration fatigue, and his nonstop smiling at rookie minicamp on Saturday seemingly served as confirmation.

Lions rookie wide receiver Jameson Williams carried a football throughout practice but did not participate in drills.

“That’s just me,” Williams said. “It’s just football. I love football, so I’m going to be happy out here, ball in my hands or not. So on the grass, you’re going to see a smile on my face, for sure.”

Unfortunately, Williams had to take in the day’s practice from the sidelines. He’s still recovering from an ACL tear he suffered in January, an injury the Lions are in no way looking to rush.
