Week 6 return possible
Lions head coach Dan Campbell said Williams (concussion) will undergo an evaluation Tuesday with the hope that he'll be cleared to return to practice this week, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.
Williams has been sidelined since Week 1 and resided on injured reserve for the past three games, making him eligible to rejoin Detroit for practice this week. His upcoming evaluation should provide the Lions with a better sense of where he stands in his recovery from his concussion, but if Williams gets the green light to practice fully at some point Wednesday through Friday, he could be active for Sunday's game against the Bengals. An already shallow Lions wideout corps has sorely missed Williams, who entered the season as the team's No. 1 receiver.
