Photo by Bob Levey/ Lions protect Bruce Hector, Steven Montez, Jalen Elliott, and Ryan Santoso Typically, the Detroit Lions would assign their protected practice squad players on Tuesday, but because they played their Week 2 game on Monday, they get an extra 24 hours grace period to make this decision. They have a pretty consistent approach to the protected practice squad. Protect the quarterback position, protect the spots that are weak due to injury or need competition, and use the remaining spots to protect the players they deem the most talented on the practice...

Report: Detroit Lions exploring trade options for Jamie Collins

Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports The Lions have put a starting LB on the trade block... looks like it’s Derrick Barnes time. Well, it didn’t take long for the speculation to end. Shortly after linebacker Jamie Collins was listed as a non-participant in Wednesday’s walkthrough practice for a non-injury reason, it was reported by both NFL Network and ESPN that the Detroit Lions are exploring trade options for the veteran linebackers. On Tuesday, Lions head coach Dan Campbell was critical of Collins’ play on Monday night against the Green Bay Packers. “Jamie, look,...

Notes: D’Andre Swift could get more involved in the Lions’ passing game

Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports Swift already has 12 catches, but he may get involved earlier in games. After Monday night’s loss, Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell was asked if he believed the team had enough talent in their receiving corps to hang with good offensive teams like the Green Bay Packers. Campbell replied that he believes the team has the talent, but they’re still trying to figure out where each wide receiver is best served for this offense. “I’m not giving up on our receivers, either,” Campbell said. “We’ll just keep working and find out...

Injury report: Trey Flowers, Jamie Collins miss Wednesday’s walkthrough

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports Flowers is dealing with two injuries, while Collins’ mysterious absence is not injury related. With the Detroit Lions back on their Sunday game schedule, the injury report is back on its normal schedule as well. Wednesday gives us our first look at the players who are dinged up heading into the team’s Week 3 matchup with the Baltimore Ravens. Though it’s worth noting that this injury report is estimated, as the Lions only had a walkthrough practice following their Monday night game earlier in the week. Let’s take a closer look at...

WR Tyrell Williams (concussion) not expected to play vs. Ravens

Photo by Leon Halip/ Things are not looking good for the Lions’ WR1 this week. Detroit Lions Tyrell Williams took an unnecessary and penalized hit in Week 1 which left him in the league's concussion protocol and as the team begins practices in Week 3, his health has not improved. On Wednesday, coach Dan Campbell met with the local media and opened with the fact that Williams status was unchanged, and he was not expecting him to be available for this weekend’s game against the Baltimore Ravens at Ford Field. Per the league’s protocols, Williams would need to...

Detroit Lions Week 2 rookie review: Monday was a quiet night

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports Examining how the Lions 2021 rookie class performed in Week 2. Week 2 of the 2021 regular season is completed and for the Detroit Lions’ nine rookies, it was a mixed bag of participation levels. Five were counted on to start, one was inactive, and another was strangely left on the bench despite the rest of his position group struggling. Let’s take a closer look at the Lions' rookies and how they fared against the Green Bay Packers on the national stage. Penei Sewell, LT Another start at left tackle and another performance that will make...

Photo by Kevin Mazur/ for Universal Music Group Poopy-di scoop. It’s only Week 2, but I’m sending this playlist off the rails. That’s not my fault. Blame the Detroit Lions for sending my brain to the most disappointing corners of my brain to pull this song out of the mothballs. No, it’s not “Detroit Rock City” by KISS or “Don’t Stop Believin’” by Journey. Those songs will never, ever be on this playlist. If it wasn’t for Jeremy’s well-written write-up and Dan Campbell’s affinity for all things Metallica, I would have rejected his choice for...

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports Lions sign a veteran corner off their practice squad. The Detroit Lions officially placed rookie cornerback Ifeatu Melifonwu on injured reserve Wednesday morning. The Lions' third-round pick suffered a thigh injury in Monday night’s game against the Green Bay Packers while in coverage against Davante Adams. The Lions won’t be able to activate Melifonwu from IR for at least three weeks, but head coach Dan Campbell made it sound like he’ll miss more time than that. “He’s going to be down for a significant amount of time and so...

Week 3 scouting report: The Ravens are good, but very, very injured

Week 3 scouting report: The Ravens are good, but very, very injured

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports The Ravens are still the Ravens, but injuries could make them vulnerable. It’s been four years since the Detroit Lions faced off against the Baltimore Ravens, and it’s fair to say that both teams look a little different than their 2017 selves. That year, the Ravens took it to the Lions in a 44-20 blowout, but it was actually a down year for the AFC North powerhouse. They missed the playoffs with a 9-7 record, leading them to make a key franchise move the next offseason. Lamar Jackson was drafted with the team’s first-round draft...

Lions prove they can run the ball, but not when put in a hole

Photo by Quinn Harris/ Running game established? Not when you’ve got to keep pace with great quarterbacks. It wasn’t all disaster on Monday night in Lambeau Field for the Detroit Lions. While the focus is rightly on the shortcomings of the defense this week, the Lions also proved that their offense is starting to mesh, albeit in unfamiliar and new ways. It’s hard to call the running game established when Jared Goff ends Monday as the leading rusher, but we’ve received glimpses of Anthony Lynn’s offensive scheme now, and now that leads to breaking down the plan...

5 Detroit Lions game ball candidates vs. Packers

Photo by Quinn Harris/ Which Lions player deserves the Game Ball for Monday night? Last week, you all voted Penei Sewell as the game ball winner in somewhat of a landslide, with T.J. Hockenson being the only other candidate to put up a fight. This week the Detroit Lions ended up getting shellacked, but it didn’t seem that way for almost an entire three quarters on Monday night. Let’s take a look at some of the positives: Frank Ragnow PFF Grade: 74.4 Ragnow made his presence known on Monday night, paving the way for Jamaal Williams and D’Andre Swift against a weak...
