Lions TE Joseph Fauria expects to come back strong this season

by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/19/15) Lions tight end Joseph Fauria hasn't had the most conventional start to his NFL career.

He broke out in 2013 as an undrafted free agent with seven touchdowns, but then the Lions drafted another tight end in the first round the following season. Fauria now expects to hit his stride and improve on last season's six catch, 74 yard totals.

“Extremely frustrating,” Fauria said, per the team website. “But it’s something you have to overcome. Football is frustrating, you know. Everyone has injuries. Everyone has trials and tribulations and it’s how you answer them and how you come back. I’m expecting myself to come back strong.”

Fauria is a huge target a 6-foot-7 and the Lions hope they can use that to their advantage next season.

“He has a unique skill set,” head coach Jim Caldwell said of his big tight end. “When you’re not able to utilize everything that’s available to you, you know, obviously you have to find other ways to do it.

“So, he brings to the table a little something that you can’t teach. He has height and he can position himself, particularly in the red zone, extremely well.”

Joseph Fauria expects to be back with Lions by training camp

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/8/15) Injured Lions tight end Joseph Fauria is participating on a very limited basis at OTAs, but he promises he'll be at 100 percent by the start of training camp. 

Fauria injured his ankle last September, then reinjured it, when he tried to come back late in the season.

"I don't see anything holding me back from training camp," he said, per MLive. "That's the goal. Just trying to come back as soon as possible, but also being smart."

While Fauria can't do much on the field right now, he's busy doing "everything I can — everything possible. Just a bunch of rehab. Just being smart about it, and that's really it."

Lions TE Joseph Fauria still undecided about surgery

by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(1/6/15) Lions tight end Joseph Fauria, who went on injured reserve Dec. 10, is waiting for one more medical opinion before deciding whether to have surgery on his ankle, reports ESPN.com. Fauria said he should know in a week.

Ankle injuries limited Fauria to seven games. He caught six passes for 74 yards and a touchdown this season after catching seven touchdown passes as a rookie.

Lions' Joseph Fauria lands on IR with ankle injury

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/10/14) The Lions have placed tight end Joseph Fauria on the injured-reserve after suffering an ankle injury for the second time this season. Fauria, who left early in Week 14's win over the Buccaneers, returned to score a touchdown.

"It will only make my future success that much sweeter," Fauria said on Instagram. "Trust I'm going to come back the best I've ever been."

Fauria's season ends with six catches for 74 yards and a touchdown.

Report: Lions planning to re-sign tight end Kellen Davis

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/9/14) Sources have indicated the Lions will sign tight end Kellen Davis Tuesday, according to ProFootbalTalk.com.

The Lions previously waived Davis Nov. 25. The potential signing of Davis indicates the Lions are not confident tight end Joseph Fauria will be able to recover from his injured ankle, according to The Detroit News. Fauria missed six games earlier this season after injuring his ankle.

The Lions play the Vikings Week 15.
