Williams (lower body) reached an injury settlement with the Lions on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.
Williams was slated to miss the entire 2023 campaign after reverting to the Lions' injured reserve, but he's now free to sign a new deal as soon as he can pass a physical. The severity of Williams' injury is unclear, but he was carted off the field during a training camp practice with what appeared to be a lower-body issue.
The Lions waived/injured Williams (lower body) on Friday, per the NFL's transaction log.
Williams was carted off the field during Thursday's practice. He'll revert to injured reserve if he clears waivers and could be let go if he reaches an injury settlement with the Lions.
Williams (lower body) had to be carted off the field during practice Thursday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.
Williams will have to wait for further evaluation before knowing the severity of the injury. However, it will derail the 26-year-old's work to earn a roster spot with Detroit for the time being. Williams played two games with the Lions last season, but only saw the field on special teams.
