Riley Reiff
News
The Lions could be down two starting tackles Sunday against the Cowboys. Jason Fox (knee) and Riley Reiff (hamstring) are both questionable for the game.
Mohammed Seisay
News
The Lions filled their entire 10-man practice squad, signing guard Rodney Austin, tight end Michael Egnew, fullback Emil Igwenagu, safety Nate Ness, receiver Andrew Peacock, defensive tackle Xavier Proctor, cornerback Mohammed Seisay, linebacker Julian Stanford, offensive tackle Michael Williams and running back George Winn.
Danny Gorrer
News
The Lions put cornerback Nevin Lawson (dislocated toes) on injured reserve, signed cornerback Danny Gorrer and promoted linebacker Julian Stanford from the practice squad.
Isa Abdul-Quddus
News
The Lions have signed safety Isa Abdul-Quddus, formerly with the Saints, to a one-year deal worth just under $700,000. 

The former Fordham student has 74 total tackles, nine passes defensed and a pair of interceptions to go with three forced fumbles over three years. 

Matthew Stafford
News
Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford hasn't been enjoying life without Calvin Johnson so far this season, and up until halftime Sunday, that trend looked like it was going to continue.

Stafford had just 2 Fantasy points at halftime in Week 8, as the Lions were being run off the field. However, he finally found his way in the second half, by leaning heavily on Golden Tate, his best receiver left. Stafford and Tate hooked up four times for 128 yards after the break, including a 59-yard touchdown in the third quarter.

Stafford has usually found success in the past by leaning on Johnson heavily, so it is natural he might have trouble figuring out how to operate without him. Tate is no Johnson, but he has proven to be a pretty dependable No. 1 receiving option anyways, and someone Stafford needs to rely on moving forward, even when Johnson comes back. 

Sunday's game was a promising one for Stafford, since it is his first 20-plus Fantasy point effort since Week 4. With Johnson hopefully getting close to returning, this might be the perfect time to buy low on Stafford, who could be in line for a big second half after the team's Week 9 bye. 

Julian Stanford
News
The Lions put cornerback Nevin Lawson (dislocated toes) on injured reserve, signed cornerback Danny Gorrer and promoted linebacker Julian Stanford from the practice squad.
Travis Lewis
News
The Lions placed linebacker Travis Lewis (quad) on injured reserve Saturday. The team replaced Lewis on the active roster with tight end Jordan Thompson, who was signed from the practice squad.
Injury
Quadriceps - IR. Out for season
Xavier Proctor
News
The Lions filled their entire 10-man practice squad, signing guard Rodney Austin, tight end Michael Egnew, fullback Emil Igwenagu, safety Nate Ness, receiver Andrew Peacock, defensive tackle Xavier Proctor, cornerback Mohammed Seisay, linebacker Julian Stanford, offensive tackle Michael Williams and running back George Winn.
Tahir Whitehead
News
The Lions have decided to move Tahir Whitehead into the starting lineup at middle linebacker, replacing the injured Stephen Tulloch, who is out for the season due to a knee injury.

"It puts you right in the middle of the defense," Whitehead said, per ESPN. "It allows you to be able to flow sideline to sideline, as you saw with Tully over the years, make a lot of plays playing in the middle. It frees you up to do a lot."

Jerrell Harris
News
The Broncos released the following players on Sunday: Linebacker Jamar Chaney, running back Brennan Clay, wide receiver Greg Hardin, linebacker Jerrell Harris, offensive tackle Winston Justice, safety Charles Mitchell, defensive tackle Will Pericak, quarterback Bryn Renner, defensive end Chase Vaughn, running back Jerodis Williams and wide receiver Greg Wilson.
Rashean Mathis
News
Lions defensive back Rashean Mathis picked off a pass and took the ball 41 yards for a touchdown in his team's 17-14 loss to the Bills in Week 5.

Mathis stepped in front of a receiver on a pass that shouldn't have been thrown in the second quarter and had a clear path to the end zone for an easy score that put the Lions up 14-0. However, the offense was unable to find any more success while the defense allowed 17 unanswered points to fall to 3-2. The Lions face the Vikings in Minnesota in Week 6.

Glover Quin
News
Lions defensive back Glover Quin came down with an interception in Monday's season opener against the Giants. Quin picked off Eli Manning in the third quarter. He finished with five tackles (four solo) and two defended passes in a 35-14 defeat.
C.J. Mosley
News
The Lions have suspended defensive tackle C.J. Mosley for two weeks for conduct detrimental to the team and violation of team rules, DetroitLions.com reports. Mosley was sent home from London early Saturday and placed on the reserved/suspended by club list.
Don Carey
News
All of the Lions listed as probable on Friday's final injury report are active for Week 5's matchup with the Bills, including defensive tackle Nick Fairley (knee), wide receiver Golden Tate (hamstring), safety Don Carey (hamstring), defensive end Devin Taylor (knee) and tackle LaAdrian Waddle (calf).

Fairley should be good to go for his regular role, which includes playing about half of the team's defensive snaps. He recorded his first sack of the season in Week 4.

Darius Slay
News
Lions cornerback Darius Slay was inconsistent as a rookie but the team is counting on him as a starter in 2014, according to the team's website. 

“He has a lot of work to do,” general manager Martin Mayhew said. “I think he’s up to the challenge. He finished up strong for us the last half of the season. I’m looking forward to seeing him this season.”

The Lions are expected to play more aggressive, man-to-man coverage under new coordinator Teryl Austin, a style that suits Slay's strengths, the report said.

Kellen Moore
News
Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson and running back Reggie Bush were among the notable players officially ruled inactive for Sunday's clash in London against the Falcons in Week 8. Both players are working their way back from ankle injuries.

The team will also be without the services of their top three tight ends on the depth chart, Eric Ebron (hamstring), Joseph Fauria (ankle) and Brandon Pettigrew (foot). Other inactives include LaAdrian Waddle (concussion) and backup quarterback Kellen Moore.

LaAdrian Waddle
News
The injury report released Friday by the Lions for the Week 8 game against Atlanta runs the gamut - two out, two doubtful, two questionable, two probable.

Ruled out are tight ends Joseph Fauria (ankle) and Eric Ebron (hamstring). Running back Reggie Bush (ankle) and tight end Brandon Pettigrew (foot) are doubtul. 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.

Travis Swanson
News
The Lions signed third-round draft pick Travis Swanson to a rookie deal, the team announced Thursday. Swanson is expected to compete for a starting spot this summer and eventually become the team's starting center. 
Pat Edwards
News
The Lions signed wideout Pat Edwards to their practice squad. He started two games and appeared in four for the team last season, catching five passes for 46 yards.

To make room, Detroit released defensive tackle Derrick Hopkins.

Nick Fairley
News
Lions coach Jim Caldwell said Tuesday the team doesn't have a timetable for defensive lineman Nick Fairley's return and disputes the ESPN report, which stated Fairley will miss 4-5 weeks due to a sprained MCL and PCL.

Caldwell added he is "not certain" if Fairley will return this season, but he hasn't been told either that he won't be back.

Injury
Knee - Left Week 8 at Atlanta
Matt Prater
News
Lions kicker Matt Prater drilled a game-winning 48-yard field goal as time expired to give his team a 22-21 Week 8 victory over the Falcons in London.

Prater's first attempt went wide right, but he was saved by a delay of game penalty that pushed his kick back 5 yards. He added a 22-yard field goal in the third quarter and a 20-yard shot in the fourth. He finished 3 for 3 in field goal attempts with one extra point, totaling 10 points in the win. He is 5 for 7 on the season.
Joique Bell
News
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. 

Cassius Vaughn
News
The Lions will have their probable players Week 6 against the Vikings. 

Jerome Couplin, Theo Riddick and Cassius Vaughn will all play against Minnesota. Couplin is dealing with a rib injury. Riddick has a hamstring issue, and Vaughn has an ankle injury.

DeAndre Levy
News
Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy was an interception machine last season. He picked up where he left off with an interception in Week 1 against the Giants. Levy made a diving catch to intercept Eli Manning in the third quarter. He finished with with a team-high 10 tackles (nine solo), two tackles for a loss and one pass defended in a 35-14 victory.
Rodney Austin
News
The Lions filled their entire 10-man practice squad, signing guard Rodney Austin, tight end Michael Egnew, fullback Emil Igwenagu, safety Nate Ness, receiver Andrew Peacock, defensive tackle Xavier Proctor, cornerback Mohammed Seisay, linebacker Julian Stanford, offensive tackle Michael Williams and running back George Winn.
Cornelius Lucas
News
The Lions unveiled their inactives for Week 1 against the Giants. The following players were ruled inactive for the game: Kevin Ogletree, Ryan Broyles, Kellen Moore, Cornelius Lucas, Larry Webster, James Ihedigbo and Don Carey.
George Winn
News
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.

Brandon Pettigrew
News
The Lions are nearly certain to be sans three tight ends for their Sunday game against Atlanta. Both Eric Ebron (hamstring) and Joseph Fauria (ankle) have been ruled out while starter Brandon Pettigrew (foot) has been designated as doubtful.

Their absences could launch Jordan Thompson into the starting role. He was recently signed off the practice squad. Fullback Jed Collins could also earn some reps at tight end.

Injury
Foot - Missed Week 8 at Atlanta
Corey Fuller
News
Lions second-year wideout Corey Fuller, who has emerged since star Calvin Johnson lost time to an ankle injury, has earned the praise of Jim Caldwell.

Fuller has eight receptions for 83 yards in the last three games, including two key snags in the fourth quarter of the Week 7 win over New Orleans. He snagged the game-winning touchdown.

"He's just barely scratching the surface," Caldwell told MLive.com. "He's long, he can run, he's smart, he's tough and obviously you can see he can go up and make plays for you as well. I think you're just going to see him get better."

Jed Collins
News
The Lions backup runners had a rough game Week 6.

George Winn received five carries, gaining 16 yards. Fullback Jed Collins had one carry, picking up 3 yards. Both players will take on the Saints Week 7. 

Joseph Fauria
News
Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson and running back Reggie Bush were among the notable players officially ruled inactive for Sunday's clash in London against the Falcons in Week 8. Both players are working their way back from ankle injuries.

The team will also be without the services of their top three tight ends on the depth chart, Eric Ebron (hamstring), Joseph Fauria (ankle) and Brandon Pettigrew (foot). Other inactives include LaAdrian Waddle (concussion) and backup quarterback Kellen Moore.

Injury
Ankle - Missed Week 8 at Atlanta
Ndamukong Suh
News
Lions general manager Martin Mayhew said he has no intentions of trading defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh, who could be a free agent after the season. Mayhew added he doesn't expect the team to be active at the trade deadline, according to the team's official website. 
Larry Warford
News
Lions guard Larry Warford, who did not allow a sack while playing every snap as a rookie, said he wasn't happy with how he played down the stretch. 

“Looking back on my last three games and comparing it to my first four or five, the difference in explosion was significant,” Warford told the team's website. “I wasn’t coming off the ball as hard as I used to. I was still getting good movement and all that, but it wasn’t a snap like it used to be. I didn’t realize how much (the season) would tear me down.”

Warford (6-3, 333) said he's taking better care of his body and honing his technique so he can finish stronger in 2014.

Bill Bentley
News
The Lions confirmed cornerback Bill Bentley has a torn ACL and will miss the rest of the season, reports the Detroit Free Press. Bentley suffered the injury Monday against the Giants.
Injury
Knee - IR. Out for season
Calvin Johnson
News
Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson "definitely expects to play" in Week 10 after the team returns from a bye, DetroitLions.com reports.

Johnson hasn't played since Week 5 while recovering from an ankle injury that had also limited him in his previous games. After catching seven passes for 164 yards and two touchdowns in the season opener, the star receiver managed just 15 catches for 184 yards and no scores in four weeks before hitting the shelf.

Injury
Ankle - Missed Week 8 at Atlanta
Ezekiel Ansah
News
The injury report released Friday by the Lions for the Week 8 game against Atlanta runs the gamut - two out, two doubtful, two questionable, two probable.

Ruled out are tight ends Joseph Fauria (ankle) and Eric Ebron (hamstring). Running back Reggie Bush (ankle) and tight end Brandon Pettigrew (foot) are doubtul. 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.

Don Muhlbach
News
The Lions re-signed long snapper Don Muhlbach to a one-year deal, according to the team's website.
Kellen Davis
News
The Lions have signed tight end Kellen Davis, a league source told Pro Football Talk on Monday. The move will give the team more depth at tight end after Joseph Fauria (ankle) and rookie Eric Ebron (hamstring) all sat out Week 7. The only healthy tight end on the roster, Brandon Pettigrew, injured his ankle on Sunday against New Orleans.

Davis caught three passes in 15 appearances last season for the Seahawks. He has yet to play a game this season.

Caraun Reid
News
Lions defensive tackle Caraun Reid was officially ruled active for Week 1 against the Giants. Reid was on the injury report with a shoulder issue but was never in danger of missing game action. He was ruled probable leading up to the game.
Devin Taylor
News
All of the Lions listed as probable on Friday's final injury report are active for Week 5's matchup with the Bills, including defensive tackle Nick Fairley (knee), wide receiver Golden Tate (hamstring), safety Don Carey (hamstring), defensive end Devin Taylor (knee) and tackle LaAdrian Waddle (calf).

Fairley should be good to go for his regular role, which includes playing about half of the team's defensive snaps. He recorded his first sack of the season in Week 4.

Sam Martin
News
The Lions have listed S John Wendling, S Louis Delmas and P Sam Martin as probable Week 16. 

Wendling has an ankle injury and was limited in practice Friday. Delmas has been dealing with a knee injury all year, but has played through it. Martin has been limited with a groin issue.

T.J. Jones
News
Lions general manager Martin Mayhew said Thursday the team plans to activate wide receiver T.J. Jones off the PUP list in the coming weeks, per the team's official website. Jones has been sidelined all season due to a shoulder injury.
Injury
Shoulder - PUP. Out indefinitely
Golden Tate
News
You should know the deal with Lions wide receiver Golden Tate by now. With Calvin Johnson sidelined for most of the last five games with a high ankle sprain, he's basically been the only target in quarterback Matthew Stafford's sights, going for well more than 100 yards for the fourth time during that stretch Week 8 against Atlanta in London.

His average in those five games is 119.8 yards. The only time he fell short of 100 was Week 6 at Minnesota, when he caught seven passes for 44 yards, but he was targeted 12 times even then.

Looking back at Tate's game log, he was no slouch when Johnson was healthy, averaging 67.0 yards in the Lions' first three games. Of course, nobody really thought of him as a must-start player back then, making his emergence in Fantasy seem like it's directly tied to Johnson's injury. But while he'll certainly lose value when Johnson returns, Tate may just be good enough for you to stick with him in Fantasy even then. Stafford has never had a secondary target this talented and has never gotten to mesh with one so. It may keep him from having tunnel vision going forward.

Tate has shown he's deserving of Stafford's trust, too. His 151 yards in Week 8 came despite playing most of the game with a sore back.

Ryan Broyles
News
With Calvin Johnson sidelined with ankle injury, the Lions received contributions from wideouts Jeremy Ross, Corey Fuller and Ryan Broyles in a Week 8 victory over the Falcons.

Fuller came down with a 16-yard grab in the third quarter and a 13-yard catch in the fourth. He finished with three catches for 43 yards on six targets. Ross caught all three of his targets for 31 yards. Broyles caught a 4-yard pass in the third quarter. He was targeted twice in a 22-21 victory.

Stephen Tulloch

Lions coach Jim Caldwell announced Monday linebacker Stephen Tulloch will be placed on injured reserve after suffering a torn ACL Sunday against the Packers. Tulloch was injured during a post-play celebration.

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.

Dan Orlovsky
News
Lions quarterback Dan Orlovsky, who's back with the team after his 2005-08 stint, doesn't like to relive the 0-16 season in 2008. Orlovsky punctuated that debacle by running out the back of his own end zone for a safety.

“There’s not much I can say to unmask the things that happened or erase those things,” Orlovsky told the Detroit Free Press. “My personal aspect of it is I knew I played well. We were just not a good football team. Did I have a part of that? Sure. I wish I played better in certain spaces, but I knew I played well, and I kind of look at it like this: It’s hard to play in this league for four years. It’s really, really hard to play in it for 10 years.

“I get the fears maybe with obviously fans and whatnot, but the organization knows what they’re doing, and I know I’m a good player, and I certainly hope to just be part of changing some of that past, whether it’s directly or indirectly.”

Orlovsky replaced Shaun Hill as Matthew Stafford's backup.
