Injury report: AJ Parker doing ‘better than we thought,’ Taylor Decker’s status unchanged

Photo by Sean M. Haffey/ Good news, bad news on the Lions’ first injury report of the week. The Detroit Lions were back in Allen Park on Wednesday as they prepare to host the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 8. But after a trip to the West Coast last weekend, coach Dan Campbell elected to start the week with a walkthrough, so today’s participation levels are only estimates. Before we get to those estimates, lets take a quick look at the Lions’ designated to return from injured reserve players. Returned to practice, Still on IR LT Taylor Decker (finger) — Day 15 of...

Fantasy Football Week 8: Kalif Raymond worth a look on the waiver wire?

Kalif Raymond has been the most consistent Lions’ wide receiver this season, but is he now a viable fantasy option?

Detroit Lions release cornerback Daryl Worley

Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports The Lions continue to shuffle depth in the secondary. The Detroit Lions announced on Tuesday afternoon that nickel cornerback Daryl Worley has been released. The veteran cornerback replaced AJ Parker during Sunday’s contest against the Los Angeles Rams after Parker suffered a shoulder injury late in the third quarter. Worley struggled mightily, as Matthew Stafford picked on him almost immediately and completed a 59-yard pass to Cooper Kupp that set up the go-ahead score in the fourth quarter (another pass to Kupp with Worley in coverage)....

Campbell: Detroit Lions’ AJ Parker could ‘be down a little while’

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports The Lions may need to find a new starting nickel corner for a little bit. The Detroit Lions' secondary continues its run of bad luck with injuries. After losing starting corner Jeff Okudah for the season with an Achilles injury and replacement starter, rookie Ifeatu Melifonwu, to injured reserve—he is expected back sometime after the Lions bye week—they have now potentially lost their starting nickel corner rookie AJ Parker as well. Parker injured his shoulder in the second half of last Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Rams...

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports The Rams make the big plays when it counts most to beat the Lions The Los Angeles Rams were able to hold of the Detroit Lions by a final score of 28-19. It was an emotionally charged game with so many players and personnel previously being a member of the other team. After the game Head Coach Sean McVay touched on some those emotions, as well as his thoughts on Detroit’s aggressive special teams, Robert Rochell’s injury, and Jared Goff’s performance.

Week 7 inactives: Dean Marlowe scratched, Jason Cabinda out vs. Rams

The Lions made a few roster moves this week. On Wednesday, they signed WR Geronimo Allison to the active roster, but with only 52-players on the roster at that time, a corresponding move wasn’t necessary. On Saturday, they elevated TE Brock Wright and S Jalen Elliott from the practice squad, bringing the...

Lions-Rams podcast preview: What can Detroit do to keep it close?

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports We chat with Rams blogger Robert Finn to find out. All week, we’ve been told the Detroit Lions have no chance this Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams. Jared Goff says he’s going to let the emotions go by the time of the opening kickoff. Matthew Stafford wouldn’t say a bad thing about Detroit and even complimented their secondary. Aaron Donald continues to be feared, and the Lions continue to have injury issues. We know all of that. But what we don’t know is if there is actually any pathway to victory this week. It seems unlikely,...

Campbell: Taylor Decker has little ‘setback,’ Da’Shawn Hand progressing

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports Campbell provided some key injury updates ahead of Sunday’s Rams game. Last week, the Detroit Lions brought left tackle Taylor Decker back to practice even though the veteran offensive lineman remains on injured reserve. That decision set a 21-day clock in motion. During that time, Decker can practice with the team but cannot play on Sunday until they put him back on the 53-man roster. The Lions must activate him in that 21-day window or he’ll revert back to injured reserve for the remainder of the season. So his return to practice was a...

Lions unsure about Decker’s return from injury, not ruling out ending his season

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports It’s unclear if Taylor Decker will return this week—or at all this season. Last week, the Detroit Lions left tackle Taylor Decker began practicing again. While still on injured reserve, due to finger surgery early in the season, returning to practice begins a 21-day window in which Decker can be activated to the 53-man roster. However, at the end of that window, if the Lions have not made a move with Decker, they would be forced to place him back on injured reserve for the remainder of his season. On Wednesday, Lions head coach...
