Jack Williams Fully Recovered From ACL Injury

It has been a while since Detroit Lions cornerback Jack Williams has been on a football field in a game situation. Picked up off waivers by the Lions during the 2009 season, Williams tore his ACL in his debut with Detroit. Since then he has been trying to get back to full health, and only now is he back to being 100 percent.

"I'm not even sure so much what my role will be," Williams said last week at the Detroit Lions Invitational golf outing. "First thing I've got to do is prove that I'm capable of playing at the level that I've played at in past years."

Williams spent last season on the PUP list. In October he was eligible to be activated, but the Lions decided to shelve him for the rest of the season. Williams' knee just wasn't fully recovered from the ACL injury, and it actually required another surgery (this time performed by Dr. James Andrews) this past December to fully repair it.

With surgery and rehab behind him, Williams is hopeful that he can contribute to the Lions going forward. He said that he knows what he can do when healthy, and he doesn't think it will take him long to get back to the playing level he was once on. Considering the Lions aren't exactly set at cornerback, getting Williams back at a pre-injury level would be a nice addition for the 2011 season.
