Now that we are done with the first six weeks of the 2010 season, players on the PUP list are eligible to be activated and start playing. For the Lions, that meant that they were able to activate cornerback Jack Williams, who has been on the PUP list since training camp opened back in the summer.
Williams was stuck on the PUP list because he tore his ACL a year ago in his debut with the Lions. The injury kept him from being 100% for an extended period of time, so he had to stay on the PUP list and miss the first six weeks of the season. He is now on the 53-man roster, though, and hopefully he will help upgrade the cornerback position a bit going forward.
To make room on the roster for Williams, the Lions released cornerback Dante Wesley. Wesley was let go during the final round of roster cuts, but Detroit brought him back at the end of last month to help with special teams.
UPDATE: Williams has not apparently been activated just yet.
