Ameer Abdullah (foot) will be ready for Lions OTA's

Detroit Lions running back Ameer Abdullah (foot) expects to be 100 percent for the start of OTA's. What It Means: Abdullah injured his foot in Week 2 and ended up missing the remainder of the season. He carried the ball 18 times for 101 scoreless yards in two games. With the emergence of Zach Zenner as a three-down back the final couple games, Abdullah's 2017 role has become unclear. On his regular season carries, Abdullah picked up 0.14 Rushing Net Expected Points per attempt. Source: Rotoworld.com
