Detroit Lions coach Dan Campbell announced Saturday that wide receiver Tyrell Williams and defensive lineman Kevin Strong will miss Monday night’s game at Green Bay due to concussion protocol.

Both players were hurt in last Sunday’s season-opening 41-33 loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

Williams caught two passes for 14 yards before exiting in the third quarter after a penalized hit by Jaquiski Tartt. Strong made three tackles but it’s not clear when the injury occurred.

Williams, 29, has 199 receptions for 3,195 yards and 23 touchdowns in 70 games (50 starts) with the Chargers (2015-18), Raiders (2019) and Lions.

Strong, 25, has 23 tackles and one sack in 15 games (one start) with Detroit since 2019.
