Detroit Lions' 2021 Week 7 Friday Injury Report

Read more on the Detroit Lions' 2021 Week 7 injury report released Friday.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Tyrell Williams is still dealing with the lingering impact of a head injury that occurred in the season opener against the San Francisco 49ers. 

Wide receivers coach Antwaan Randle-El expressed on Friday that Williams has continued to meet with specialists, as he works through the recovery process. 

"He's doing good. We try to talk once -- started off twice, now it's once a week. But, he's just going to see different neurologists, because the way he feels is not himself. I'll just leave (it) at that," Randle-El said. "That's what you don't want. You want him to get back and feel like he can go out and be himself. He just hasn't felt that way yet. That's what matters most. The health, more than anything, is what matters. That's going to be the focus."

On Friday, Detroit head coach Dan Campbell also provided an update on the health of rookie cornerback Ifeatu Melifonwu.

“We’re still a little ways away. Now, what is that? I don’t know. Certainly not before the bye, but he is progressing. He is getting better. He’s getting better," Campbell said. "I wish I could give you a timeline, but I do feel like we can get him to return before the season’s out. I feel that way. Now, I’m not a doctor, so don’t hold that on me.”
