Tyrell Williams (concussion) placed on IR

Detroit Lions wide receiver Tyrell Williams has been placed on I.R. due to a concussion.

Fantasy Impact: 

Stints on the I.R. are uncommon for concussions, so this suggests that Williams is dealing with severe trauma and that he is not close to exiting the league's protocol. The Lions will continue to roll with Quintez Cephus, Amon-Ra St. Brown, and Kalif Raymond as their top three receivers. T.J. Hockenson will remain the featured weapon in the passing game, with running backs D'Andre Swift and Jamaal Williams seeing a fair share of Jared Goff's targets. Williams will be eligible to return from the I.R. in three weeks but will need to be cleared from concussion protocol to remain with the team. Outside of the deepest of leagues, it is safe to move on from Tyrell.
