Pipkins spent time on the Colts' practice squad and active roster earlier this season, appearing in one game and totaling nine tackles (six solo).

Oct 9 2018 - Lenzy Pipkins
  CB Lenzy Pipkins was placed on waivers by the Colts Tuesday (Oct. 9). Pipkins, 6-0, 196 pounds, has spent time on Indianapolis' active roster and practice squad this season. He started in Week 5 at New England and finished with a single-game career-high nine tackles (six solo).

Oct 9 2018 - Kerryon Johnson
  RB Kerryon Johnson had a 24-yard run to set up a touchdown Sunday against Green Bay, but he stepped awkwardly out of bounds after he was pushed. He limped off the field and his right ankle was attended to by trainers. He received new tape on the ankle but didn't return.


Oct 9 2018 - Ezekiel Ansah
  DE Ezekiel Ansah's shoulder injury, making him miss four straight games, is causing controversy in Detroit. Some fans and media have suggested that he is "milking" the injury to preserve his body for his next contract. Lions coach Matt Patricia was asked about this perception on Monday during his weekly press conference. "Next question," Patricia said. "Let's talk about something real important here."


Oct 8 2018 - Jamal Agnew
  CB Jamal Agnew, an All-Pro returner, suffered what appeared to be a serious left knee injury late in Sunday's win over the Packers. Patricia was asked if the injury has ended Agnew's season. "I'm not going to speculate anything until I get information. I'm not a doctor," he said. If Agnew is out for extended period of time, the Lions will use wide receivers TJ Jones and Brandon Powell and running back Ameer Abdullah to help in the return game.


Oct 8 2018 - LeGarrette Blount
  RB LeGarrette Blount scored two touchdowns Sunday.


Oct 8 2018 - Matthew Stafford
  QB Matthew Stafford finished an efficient 14 of 26 for 183 yards and two touchdowns. He put the Lions up 24-0 when he fired a laser, which Marvin Jones corralled as he was tumbling out the back of the end zone.


Oct 7 2018 - Dee Virgin
  CB Dee Virgin was signed by the Lions to their practice squad Saturday (Oct. 6). Virgin returns to Detroit after originally joining the Lions via waivers from the Houston Texans on September 2.

  CB Cre'Von LeBlanc was signed by the Lions from their practice squad Saturday (Oct. 6). LeBlanc came to Detroit as a member of the practice squad earlier this season following a two-year stint with the Chicago Bears (2016-17).

  TE Hakeem Valles was placed on waivers by the Lions Saturday (Oct. 6).


Oct 4 2018 - Lenzy Pipkins
  CB Lenzy Pipkins was signed by the Colts from their practice squad Thursday (Oct. 4). Pipkins, 6-0, 196 pounds, has spent time on Indianapolis' active roster and practice squad this season. He was originally acquired by the team via trade with the Green Bay Packers on August 26, 2018 before being waived during final cuts on September 1. As a rookie in 2017, Pipkins played in 12 games (one start) for the Packers and registered 17 tackles (13 solo), 1.0 tackle for loss, one pass defensed and one special teams stop. He was originally signed by Green Bay as an undrafted free agent on May 5, 2017.


Oct 3 2018 - Quandre Diggs
  S Quandre Diggs broke his left hand in the third quarter of last week's loss to the Dallas Cowboys, but could return to action Sunday. Diggs practiced Wednesday with a cast on his hand, and even tried catching some light passes with the cast (he primarily used his right hand to catch the ball). Lions head coach Matt Patricia wouldn't speculate on whether Diggs will play this weekend, but he cited Jack Youngblood playing through a broken leg when asked how effective a defensive back can be playing with a casted hand. "Everybody's really different with different injuries that everybody has," Patricia said. "There's probably cases of players throughout the history of the league playing with different broken body parts. I'm pretty sure I remember a linebacker from Pittsburgh back in the '70s who broke his leg by the name of Jack Youngblood and I think he played with that at one point, too. So I really have no idea as far as that's concerned with all the different players." Youngblood was actually with the Rams, and played with a broken leg in the 1979 playoffs, including against Pittsburgh in the Super Bowl. If Diggs can't play, rookie third-round pick Tracy Walker could see an expanded role at safety.


Oct 3 2018 - Jamal Agnew
  CB Jamal Agnew played his first two offensive snaps of the season last week against Dallas. Agnew, who saw spot duty on offense as a gadget player and decoy last year, carried once on a jet sweep for 17 yards, and motioned for a sweep a second time to draw defenders and open the hole for Kerryon Johnson's first career touchdown.


Oct 3 2018 - T.J. Lang
  OG T.J. Lang is not expected to play Sunday after he suffered a concussion in the first half of the Cowboys game. This is either the fifth or sixth concussion of Lang's career, and the second in the last 11 months. Kenny Wiggins likely will start in Lang's place.


Oct 3 2018 - Andrew Donnal
  T/G Andrew Donnal was signed by the Lions Wednesday (Oct. 3). He had been waived by the Lions Saturday. Donnal returns to the club after originally being claimed off waivers via the Baltimore Ravens on September 2. Prior to Detroit, Donnal played six games for Baltimore in 2017. He began his professional career with the Los Angeles Rams (2015-16) after joining the team as a fourth-round selection (119th overall) in the 2015 NFL Draft out of Iowa. He has appeared in 27 career games (six starts).


Oct 3 2018 - Dee Virgin
  CB Dee Virgin was placed on waivers by the Lions Tuesday (Oct. 2).


Oct 2 2018 - Quandre Diggs
  S Quandre Diggs sustained a broken hand during the team's 26-24 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, according to a report. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported the injury, but was unclear if -- or how long -- Diggs would be sidelined. The Lions (1-3) will have a tall order on Sunday (1 p.m. ET) when they face Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers (2-1-1). Rookie Tracy Walker potentially would see an increase in workload in the absence of the 5-foot-9, 200-pound Diggs, who was signed to a three-year, $20.4 million contract extension this offseason.


Oct 1 2018 - T.J. Lang
  RG T.J. Lang didn't return after sustaining a concussion in the first quarter of Sunday's loss to the Cowboys.


Oct 1 2018 - Golden Tate
  WR Golden Tate had 132 yards and two touchdowns on eight catches. . "I like where our offense is right now as far as getting the ball to a lot of people," Tate said. "We've just got to continue to do that and figure out a way to win."


Oct 1 2018 - Matthew Stafford
  QB Matthew Stafford suffered his third straight loss at Dallas even after throwing for 307 yards, two touchdowns and 131.5 rating. "I've got to get out to a faster start, maybe snatch the lead a little bit earlier in the game and go from there," he said.


Oct 1 2018 - Garret Dooley
  LB Garret Dooley was released from the practice squad by the Vikings Monday (Oct. 1).


Sep 30 2018 - T.J. Lang
  RG T.J. Lang sustained a concussion during the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys. Lang appeared to be on the receiving end of a helmet-to-helmet hit by Cowboys linebacker Jaylon Smith on a 1-yard run by LeGarrette Blount. The 31-year-old Lang needed assistance to get off the field and was taken directly to the locker room. The team later announced that Lang was out for the remainder of the game with a concussion.


Sep 30 2018 - Eric Lee
  DE Eric Lee was signed by the Lions from their practice squad Saturday (Sept. 29). Lee began the season on Detroit's practice squad after most recently spending time on the New England Patriots' active roster in 2017, appearing in six games (five starts) with 19 tackles, 3.5 sacks and one interception. He also appeared in three postseason contests (one start) and logged four tackles for the Patriots.

Sep 26 2018 - Michael Roberts
  TE Michael Roberts suffered a right knee injury in practice last week that could keep him out through the Lions' Week 6 open date, according to the Detroit Free Press. Roberts did not play in last week's win over the New England Patriots, and had a noticeable limp as he walked through the locker room Wednesday.


Sep 26 2018 - Eli Harold

Sep 24 2018 - Kerryon Johnson
  RB Kerryon Johnson was a junior in an Alabama high school the last time the Detroit Lions had a 100-yard rusher in a game. On Sunday night, Johnson rushed for 101 yards on 16 carries in the Lions' 26-10 victory over the New England Patriots to silence the talk that has resonated since Reggie Bush reached triple digits on the ground on Thanksgiving Day in 2013.If you're scoring at home, that's a 70-game drought for the Lions (1-2-0). "I think it was probably the moment I was drafted (I heard it), I can't remember for sure," the 21-year-old Johnson said, via ESPN.com "I think it was probably around that time. That was the first time I heard it. Obviously it wasn't the last. But it was the last time I really cared about it. Like I said, I came in ready to work, ready to run. We came in ready to work. We came in ready to run. And that's how we went through the offseason, that's how we went through fall camp, and that's how we went through the regular season." Johnson's performance on Sunday drew praise from Lions legend and Pro Football Hall of Famer Barry Sanders. "Hey @Lions fans, send your congrats to @AyeyoKEJO -- 100 yards rushing for the 1st time in a while," Sanders wrote on Twitter.
