Lions backup runners do little Week 3


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) The Lions backup rushers did little Week 3 against the Packers.

Theo Riddick got three carries, and gained 16 yards. Riddick did not receive a target in the passing game. Fullback Jed Collins got one carry, picking up 2 yards. Receiver Jeremy Ross also had a carry, but lost 5 yards. He also caught three passes for 20 yards during the game. 

They'll take on the Jets Week 4. 


Lions could use trio of running backs this season


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Lions head coach Jim Caldwell hinted that the team could use Reggie Bush, Joique Bell and Theo Riddick extensively this season, the Detroit Free Press reports on Saturday.

Reggie Bush and Joique Bell shared the reps last season. Bush earned 223 of the 389 carries between the two in 2013. Riddick, who only caught four passes last season, is expected to have a bigger role this season and is considered the best receiver among the group, per the paper.

"They're pretty versatile guys, to be honest with you," Caldwell said. "There are a lot of similarities. I think shuffling them in and out of there will give you a different view from a defensive standpoint because they give you a one-two-three punch that's pretty unique."


Theo Riddick to catch 50 passes?


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/7/2014) Lions quarterback Dan Orlovsky predicted running back Theo Riddick will play a Darren Sproles-like role in the offense, reports the Detroit Free Press. Riddick is behind Reggie Bush and Joique Bell on the depth chart.

"I’m telling you, if he doesn’t 50 catches this year, I’ll be surprised because he’s going to have opportunities and he’s very talented at it," Orlovsky said on the Ross Tucker Podcast. "I think he’s going to play that Sproles role, for sure."

Orlovsky was struck by what he saw from Riddick in OTAs and minicamp.

"I mean this kid, he wasn’t covered a single time in OTAs and minicamp. He was not covered," Orlovsky said. "And I think it’s even going to be easier when he gets pads on because once linebackers just try to start colliding him, and that’s what teams started to do with Sproles sometimes, you hit the home run one out of every 10 plays. And then nine out of 10 times, Sproles wins. And I think Theo’s going to do that for us."

Riddick got 13 touches in 14 games as a rookie last year.


Theo Riddick turning heads at practice


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/17/2014) Lions backup running back Theo Riddick is having himself quite an offseason, and coach Jim Caldwell has noticed. Riddick has added some muscle and has continued to study the offense (which has changed since last season) in an effort to contribute more in 2014.

It's paid off as Riddick has replaced Joique Bell (knee) in practice this spring. 

"He's certainly done well. He's had a very good spring," Caldwell said of Riddick per the Detroit Free Press. "Matter of fact, even in my preliminary evaluation, just watching him in special teams last year, he jumps out at you. He's eager, he's hungry, he's tough, he can run. He's a very, very fine route runner. He can catch the ball. He's had a real fine spring, so I hope he continues to develop, and we think he will."


Theo Riddick 'continues to be impressive'


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/12/2014) Lions running back Theo Riddick is turning heads in practice, reports ESPN.

The report says "Riddick continues to be impressive. He seems a little faster than last season and might have improved more than anyone else on the roster from last season." Riddick did little as a rookie in 2013 with nine carries for 25 yards and a touchdown and four catches for 26 yards.

The report adds Riddick is putting himself in position to have "a real role" in this offense this season after being primarily a backup in 2013. Reggie Bush and Joique Bell are ahead of Riddick on the depth chart.


Theo Riddick scores first career TD


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Lions running back Theo Riddick found the end zone for the first time in his career during Sunday's overtime loss to the Giants in Week 16.

Riddick only had two carries in the game, one of them was a 2-yard sprint for a touchdown in the fourth quarter. He finished with eight yards in a 23-20 defeat.

The Lions, already eliminated from the playoffs, will end the season at Minnesota in Week 17.

Lions get offensive contributions


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2013) A few Lions made small offensive contributions Week 15. Tight end Brandon Pettigrew caught both his targets for 23 yards, running back Theo Riddick had a 6-yard catch, and receiver Kris Durham caught a 5-yard pass. Durham was targeted four times, twice in the end zone.

They'll all face the Giants in Week 16.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Running back Theo Riddick added 12 yards on four carries.


Lions role players help in a win


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/28/2013) Several players helped the Lions in their 40-10 win over the Packers on Thanksgiving Day. Dorin Dickerson saw a few snaps and caught a 26-yard pass. Backup rusher Theo Riddick had a 5-yard catch. Tight end Joseph Fauria had a chance to score but ran the wrong route in the end zone and wasn't thrown at again the rest of the game despite logging a decent amount of snaps. 

The Lions play at the Eagles in Week 14.

Theo Riddick an option as slot receiver for Lions?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

However, Riddick isn't sure if he will see more time in the slot with Burleson sidelined.

"I have no clue, to be honest with you," Riddick said. "If the opportunity presents itself, I'll do whatever I've got to do to make this team better and help this team any possible way. I mean, who wouldn't? I'm just trying to get a chance to play on the field."
