Wednesday, December 5, 2007 Receiver Williams wants to remain a Lion Mike O'Hara / The Detroit News ALLEN PARK -- Roy Williams wants to play again this season -- and several more after it for the Detroit Lions. Williams, the Lions' top receiver, will miss Sunday's game against Dallas because of a sprained ligament in his right knee. There are four games left in the regular season, and Williams hopes to get back for the last game at Green Bay. Williams also wants to remain a Lion after the 2008 season, the last season on a five-year contract he signed when the Lions drafted him on the first round in 2004. Williams talks often about his roots in Odessa, Texas. He played at the University of Texas. But he has no desire to play for any NFL team except the Lions, Williams said Wednesday. "I don't think that's an issue," Williams said. "(Detroit) is my second home. Just because I talk about Texas and the Texas Longhorns and Odessa in every interview doesn't mean I want to go play for Odessa Whatever. "If I wanted to leave, I'd say I want to leave. That's not a problem." Williams was injured in the first half of the last game at Minnesota. The injury will not need surgery. "I've still got to rehab it and stay with it -- see what happens," Williams said. "I want to come back this season. It's tough. I've never been in this situation. I'm optimistic. Hopefully, I'll be back." Brandon Middleton, a receiver on the practice squad, was signed to the 53-player active roster. He fills the spot left vacant when defensive back LaMarcus Hicks was put on injured reserve.
