Latest Updates

 

Lions list Reggie Bush, Calvin Johnson as probable Sunday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2014) The Lions declared running back Reggie Bush (ankle) and wide receiver Calvin Johnson (ankle) as probable for Sunday’s game against the Buccaneers. Both were able to fully participate in practice Friday.

Also listed as probable were Theo Riddick, Reily Reiff and Larry Warford. Nick Fairley was the only player listed as out.


Lions RB Theo Riddick totals six catches Week 13


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2014) Lions running back Theo Riddick had no carries during a 34-17 win Week 13 vs. Chicago, but he made his presence felt in the passing game. He totaled six catches for 54 yards, with his longest reception going for 19 yards.

Riddick has had five or more catches three times this season. He has 27 catches for 272 yards and three touchowns in 10 games. 

The Lions are back in action Week 14 vs. Tampa Bay.


Lions get contributions from several role players Week 12


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) The Lions received minor contributions from several role players in a 34-9 loss to New England on Sunday.

With Reggie Bush sidelined with an ankle injury, Theo Riddick worked as the team's No. 2 running back. He was limited to two carries for 12 yards and caught three passes for 40 yards.

Jeremy Ross nearly scored his third career touchdown, but saw a Matt Stafford pass bounce right off his fingers. He caught three of five targets for 35 yards. Eric Ebron also had some crucial drops and finished with only two catches for 23 yards. Corey Fuller saw two of Stafford's passes go through his hands in the end zone. He was limited to only one grab for 13 yards.


Lions get minor contributions from role players


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) The Lions' role players didn't make a huge impact Week 11 at Arizona. Running back Theo Riddick ran twice for 2 yards and caught three of six targets for 24 yards. Rookie tight end Eric Ebron hauled in all four of his targets for 22 yards.

Fullback Jed Collins carried twice for 3 yards, and wideout Jeremy Ross had a 7-yard grab. They'll all visit New England in Week 12.


Joique Bell stars in losing effort


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Lions running back Joique Bell had another solid performance in Week 11, as he totaled 100-plus all-purpose yards in a 14-6 loss to the Cardinals.

Bell got the bulk of the work in the running game, rushing the ball 14 times for 85 yards. He was the only Lions player to run it more than twice, and he added three receptions for 30 yards, besting Theo Riddick's contribution of three catches for 24 yards.

Riddick is supposed to be the pass-catcher with Reggie Bush out, but that probably undersells Bell's abilities in that regard a bit. Bell is a solid all-around option, and should keep getting this much work as long as Bush is sidelined. He has solid Fantasy value moving forward, while Riddick remains just a low-end PPR option. 


Lions backfield split still cloudy


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) The Lions have a crowded house in the backfield, and Fantasy owners got a glimpse of that in Week 10's win over the Dolphins.

Reggie Bush, Joique Bell and Theo Riddick got plenty of work in Sunday, with the trio combining for five receptions and 17 carries overall, however Bell was the only one of the three to touch the ball more than five times. Still, it was Riddick who made the biggest play of the game among the three, coming down with an 11-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter to win the game.

The Lions made it clear before the game they weren't going to have a No. 1 back, and that was certainly the case Sunday. And, with nobody really standing out good or bad, it will likely continue to be the case moving forward, making all three somewhat risky Fantasy options in any given game. The Lions face another tough matchup in Week 11, with the Cardinals on the way. 


Lions RB Theo Riddick catches game-winning TD pass


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Lions running back Theo Riddick had only two catches on the day, and made one of them count for six, sealing a 20-16 victory over Miami in Week 10.

Riddick caught a swing pass at the back of the end zone for an 11-yard score with 29 seconds remaining in the game to give Detroit the lead and the win. He was targeted three times and finished with two catches for 5 yards and a score. He took three handoffs for no gain.

The Lions will travel to Phoenix to face the Cardinals in Week 11.


Lions offensive coordinator wants to use more two-back sets


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/6/2014) Lions offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi said Thursday running backs Reggie Bush and Theo Riddick have somewhat redundant roles, but he still feels both will have a role moving forward.

Lombardi added he wants to use more two-back sets to get Riddick playing time. However, it will not necessarily be at the expense of Bush's reps.

The Lions' backfield also features Joique Bell, who is the team's leading rusher with 313 yards and three touchdowns.


Theo Riddick a major factor in the passing game


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) The absence of Reggie Bush was supposed to lead to an increased role for Lions running back Joique Bell in Week 8, but things didn't exactly go as planned in Sunday's win over the Falcons.

Bell had 16 touches Sunday, a solid number, but below his total of 20 from each of the previous two games. The Lions only ran the ball 23 times Sunday, which explains why Bell's role was smaller. However, he was mostly a nonfactor in the receiving game, which allowed reserve Theo Riddick to thrive once again in a larger role.

Riddick found the end zone for the second straight game, as he hauled in eight pass for 74 yards. He now has 149 yards on 13 receptions for two touchdowns over the last two games, after having no catches through six games to start the season.

After he hauled in 52 and 53 receptions in his first two seasons, we assumed Bell would once again figure heavily into the team's plans out of the backfield. However, he has caught more than two passes in a game just once this season, as the team has preferred to limit his role. He remains the primary running option and should be so moving forward. However, as long as Bush remains sidelined, Riddick is looking like a solid Fantasy player, especially in PPR formats. 


Lions RB Theo Riddick scores second touchdown of season


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) With Reggie Bush sidelined, Lions running back Theo Riddick shouldered the load in the aerial attack Sunday afternoon in London against the Falcons.

Riddick came down with 5-yard touchdown pass from Matthew Stafford in the fourth quarter. He was targeted 12 times and finished as the team's second-leading receiver with eight catches for 74 yards in a 22-21 victory. He has 13 catches for 149 yards and two touchdowns over his last two games.

The Lions are on a bye Week 9 before returning Week 10 at home against the Dolphins.


Lions RB Theo Riddick ruled active for London game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Lions running back Theo Riddick, who missed Week 7 with a hamstring injury, was ruled active for Week 8 against the Falcons in London. With Reggie Bush sidelined with an ankle injury, the team will likely turn to Riddick as the primary backup to Joique Bell on Sunday. Riddick has nine carries for 28 yards and nine catches for 75 yards and a score this season.

All designations included as Lions issue Friday injury report


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Star wideout Calvin Johnson (ankle) and tackle LaAdrian Waddle (concussion) are questionable while defensive end Ezekiel Ansah (toe) and running back Theo Riddick (hamstring) are probable.


Theo Riddick returns to practice


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2014) Lions running back Theo Riddick, who missed Week 7 with a hamstring injury, returned to practice Wednesday ahead of Sunday's game in London. It appears Detroit will have its top three backs -- Joique Bell, Reggie Bush and Riddick -- available against the Falcons.

Lions RB Theo Riddick expects to play Sunday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/21/2014) Lions running back Theo Riddick, who missed the win over New Orleans with a hamstring injury, told the Detroit News he expects to play Sunday in London against the Falcons.

Lions' tight ends among inactives Week 7


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Lions tight ends Eric Ebron (hamstring) and Joseph Fauria (ankle) are among the team's inactives for the game against New Orleans. Also sitting out are wideout Calvin Johnson (ankle), running back Theo Riddick (hamstring), quarterback Kellen Moore, offensive lineman Garrett Reynolds and defensive end Larry Webster.

With Ebron and Fauria out, tight end Brandon Pettigrew is in for a big workload Sunday.


Lions expected to be without TEs Fauria, Ebron in Week 7


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) Besides Calvin Johnson, the Lions may be without their top two pass-catching tight ends heading into Week 7 at home against the Saints.

Joseph Fauria was unable to practice and was ruled out for Sunday. Eric Ebron, who was limited participant on Wednesday, was unable to return to the practice field Thursday and Friday. As a result, he was labeled doubtful for the game. Theo Riddick (hamstring) and Travis Lewis (quadriceps) missed practice the entire week. Riddick is doubtful, while Lewis was ruled out for Week 7.

Johnson was not a participant in practice the entire week and could be sidelined until Week 10. He was officially questionable on the injury report. Reggie Bush (ankle), Jeremy Ross (ankle) and Ezekiel Ansah (toe) were all listed as probable for Sunday.


Hamstring keeps Theo Riddick out Wednesday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/15/2014) Lions No. 3 running back Theo Riddick, who had 81 total yards and a touchdown Week 6, did not practice Wednesday, reports the team's website. Riddick aggravated a hamstring injury in the win at Minnesota and was forced to leave early.

Jim Caldwell: Johnson, Bush, Riddick all 'improving rapidly'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) Lions head coach Jim Caldwell told reporters that wide receiver Calvin Johnson (ankle) and running backs Reggie Bush (ankle) and Theo Riddick (hamstring) are all "improving rapidly," according to Detroit Free Press. However, Caldwell would not commit to any of them playing on Sunday against the Saints.

Lions RB Reggie Bush plans to play against former team Week 7


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) Lions running back Reggie Bush said he will "for sure" be healthy enough to play Week 7 vs. New Orleans after sitting out Week 6 at Minnesota due to an ankle injury, according to The Detroit News. Bush said after Sunday's game he plans to play against the team that drafted him second overall in 2006.

With Bush sidelined Sunday, the Lions rushed for 100 yards. Running back Joique Bell led the team with 74 rushing yards and one touchdown on 18 carries, while running back George Winn had 16 yards on five carries. Running back Theo Riddick had three carries for 6 yards, but he was more effective in the passing game before leaving with a hamstring injury, totaling five catches for 75 yards and one touchdown. Bell added two catches for 23 yards.


Theo Riddick the one to get in Joique Bell's way


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/12/2014) Lions running back Joique Bell ended up having the big game so many Fantasy analysts anticipated for him with Reggie Bush sidelined by a sprained ankle Week 6 at Minnesota, but it didn't start out that way. That's because Theo Riddick, who wasn't available in Week 5 because of a hamstring injury, played a big role out of the backfield.

He scored the Lions' first touchdown on a 9-yard catch-and-run just a few plays after turning in a 41-yard catch-and-run. He ultimately led the Lions with 75 receiving yards and probably would have had more than three carries if his hamstring hadn't acted up just before halftime.

That's when Bell took over. Of his 18 carries, 13 came in the second half. He ended up rushing for 74 yards and a touchdown and added 23 more as a receiver.

George Winn, who stole many of Bush's carries when Bell was sidelined by a concussion last week, wasn't much of a factor, but he did get most of his carries after Riddick left, finishing with five for 16 yards.

So even though Bell showed he could serve as an every-down back, the Lions showed they prefer to have a rotation of rushers regardless of who's able to take the field. With Bush already talking like he'll be back for Week 7 against New Orleans, Bell remains a fringy starter in Fantasy.


Lions' Theo Riddick makes an impact in the passing game


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Lions running back Theo Riddick made a much bigger impact in the passing game Week 6. 

Riddick did have three carries, but only managed 6 yards. He was much stronger on the receiving end, leading the club with 75 yards. Riddick did a fair amount of his damage early. On the team's first drive, Riddick hauled in a short pass from Matthew Stafford, and rumbled 41 yards. With the team in the red zone, Riddick caught a 9 yard touchdown pass. Riddick would up being limited in the second after suffering a hamstring injury. He was ruled doubtful, and did not return to the contest. Riddick came into the week probable due to a hamstring issue.

If he can go, Riddick will take on the Saints Week 7.

Lions rookie RB George Winn not destined to fade away


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) The return to health of fellow Lions running backs Joique Bell and Theo Riddick will not shelve impressive rookie George Winn, according to MLive.com. The latter will still get his carries.

Winn, who was promoted off the practice squad last week, debuted with a flourish against Buffalo on Sunday. He took more snaps than anticipated and rushed for 48 yards on 11 carries. Included were runs for 13 and 16 yards in his first six attempts.

"I think he's proven through the preaseason and regular season that he's effective as a ball carrier," offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi said. "Yeah, for sure."
