 Latest Lions Player Notes
Nov 23 2017 - Ezekiel Ansah
  DE Ezekiel Ansah is listed as active for Thursday afternoon's game versus the surging Minnesota Vikings at Ford Field. Ansah sat out the last two games with a back injury and was questionable to play on Thursday.


Nov 20 2017 - Marvin Jones
  WR Marvin Jones Jr. caught a 28-yard touchdown pass Sunday, his fourth touchdown of 20-plus yards this year. Jones is tied for first in the NFL with 20-plus-yard touchdown catches. DeAndre Hopkins, Tyreek Hill, Will Fuller and Robby Anderson also have four such grabs.


Nov 20 2017 - Matthew Stafford
  QB Matthew Stafford moved past Troy Aikman and into 36th place on the NFL's all-time career passing list with 299 yards on Sunday. Stafford grew up a huge Aikman fan in the Dallas suburbs. He now has 33,063 yards passing in his career.


Nov 20 2017 - Jamal Agnew
  PR Jamal Agnew left Sunday's game in the fourth quarter with a left knee injury. Agnew was injured covering a kick and did not return. Lions head coach Jim Caldwell said Monday the team still was waiting on results of further testing. Agnew's status for Thursday's game against the Vikings is up in the air.


Nov 20 2017 - D.J. Hayden
  CB DJ Hayden scooped up a Mitchell Trubisky fumble and returned it 27 yards to the end zone. The Lions tied a franchise record with their seventh return touchdown of the season.


Nov 20 2017 - Ezekiel Ansah
  DE Ezekiel Ansah was inactive for the second week in a row because of a back injury. He ranks second on the team with four sacks in eight games.


Nov 20 2017 - D.J. Hayden
  CB DJ Hayden capitalized on a botched snap by the Bears to scoop and score on a 27-yard fumble return.


Nov 20 2017 - Matthew Stafford
  QB Matthew Stafford passed for 299 yards and two touchdowns. "We weren't perfect, but it was nice having guys that fought to get back out there and having them play well." Stafford found Marvin Jones Jr. for a 28-yard touchdown and running back Ameer Abdullah for a 2-yard touchdown. Stafford moved past Troy Aikman, his boyhood ,on the NFL's career passing list. The individual milestone came along with a narrow victory for Detroit (6-4), which held on for a 27-24 road win over the Chicago Bears. The performance increased his career total to 33,063 passing yards, which moved him past Aikman (32,942 yards) for 36th place in the record books. "It's awesome," Stafford said. "He's a guy I grew up watching, and I have a lot of respect for him still to this day. He's a great player. He's done a great job with his current career. "It's cool. I'll look back on it when I'm all said and done and hopefully get some time to think about it. But at the moment, man, I've got a game in about 36 hours or so -- whatever it is -- so I'm trying to get ready for that one." At his current pace, Stafford will climb past other quarterbacks such as Y.A. Tittle (33,070 yards), Steve Young (33,124 yards) and Phil Simms (33,426 yards) well before the season is finished. But he is more focused on Detroit's ascension in the standings than his individual rankings. "We're trying to move down the field and score points," Stafford said. "I don't really care how it happens. If I hand it off five times or if I throw it five times, let's just go execute and play good football."


Nov 20 2017 - Matt Prater
  PK Matt Prater drilled a 52-yard field goal with 1:35 remaining to give Detroit to a 27-24 win over the Chicago Bears. Detroit (6-4) won its third consecutive game and improved to 4-1 on the road.


Nov 15 2017 - Jalen Reeves-Maybin
  LB Jalen Reeves-Maybin (ankle) returned to practice Wednesday after missing the Browns game


Nov 15 2017 - Ezekiel Ansah
  DE Ziggy Ansah missed his fourth straight practice Wednesday with a back injury, leaving his status for Sunday's game against the Bears in doubt. Ansah has been slowed by a knee injury most of the season, but he sat out the Browns game with back problems.


Nov 15 2017 - Kasim Edebali
  LB Kasim Edebali was awarded to the Lions off waivers on Wednesday. Edebali played eight games with the Denver Broncos this year and had one tackle.


Nov 15 2017 - T.J. Lang
  G T.J. Lang is expected back in the lineup Sunday after missing last week's win over the Browns with a concussion. Lang cancelled his weekly appearance on the Detroit radio station 97.1 FM on Tuesday because he still was in concussion protocol, but he was a full participant in a padded practice Wednesday. Corey Robinson, fresh off injured reserve, started in Lang's place last week.


Nov 13 2017 - Golden Tate
  WR Golden Tate caught six passes Sunday, giving him 336 in three-plus seasons with the Lions. Tate is tied for sixth on the team's all-time receptions list with Hall-of-Famer Charlie Sanders. Barry Sanders (352 catches) ranks fifth on the list.


Nov 13 2017 - Matthew Stafford
  QB Matthew Stafford was credited with leading the 30th game-winning drive of his career against the Browns. Stafford completed 6 of 9 passes in the fourth quarter for 85 yards and two touchdowns. The game was tied at 24 entering the fourth quarter.


Nov 13 2017 - Dwayne Washington
  RB Dwayne Washington left Sunday's win over the Browns with a hip injury. Washington has dealt with a slew of injuries this year, including a quad strain that kept him out four games and a concussion. His status for this week's game against the Bears is not yet known.


Nov 13 2017 - Nevin Lawson
  CB Nevin Lawson atoned for what he called "the worst first half of my career" in a big way Sunday. Lawson forced and recovered a fumble on Browns tight end Seth DeValve that he returned 44 yards for a touchdown.


Nov 13 2017 - Taylor Decker
  OL Taylor Decker made his season debut at left tackle Sunday, playing 69 percent of the Lions' offensive snaps five months after he tore the labrum in his right shoulder. "I was obviously very excited to get back out there, and then once I got back out there and was able to get a couple drives in, kind of the nerves settled and I just settled in," Decker said


Nov 13 2017 - Taylor Decker
  LT Taylor Decker made his season debut. Decker tore his right labrum in June.


Nov 13 2017 - Ezekiel Ansah
  DE Ziggy Ansah missed Sunday's game with a back injury.


Nov 13 2017 - Eric Ebron
  TE Eric Ebron scored his second touchdown of the season. He beat the one-on-one coverage on the 29-yard pass play with 10:46 remaining.


Nov 13 2017 - Golden Tate
  WR Golden Tate caught six passes for 97 yards and a score against Cleveland.


Nov 13 2017 - Ameer Abdullah
  RB Ameer Abdullah had 52 rushing yards on 11 carries and a touchdown against Cleveland.


Nov 13 2017 - Matthew Stafford
  QB Matthew Stafford bounced back from a quiet first half and threw three second-half touchdown passes as the Lions rallied for a 38-24 victory. Stafford completed 17 of 26 passes for 249 yards. He threw for just 57 yards and was intercepted once before the break.


Nov 10 2017 - Taylor Decker
  T Taylor Decker is expected to be activated by the Detroit Lions on Friday. Decker tore his right labrum in the offseason,


Nov 10 2017 - Greg Robinson
  T Greg Robinson was waived by the Detroit Lions on Friday. Robinson was waived with an injury designation after missing the past two games due to an ankle ailment.


Nov 9 2017 - T.J. Lang
  G T.J. Lang has entered the NFL's concussion protocol, coach Jim Caldwell announced on Thursday. Lang's concussion symptoms developed during practice on Wednesday, two days removed from the Lions' 30-17 win over his former team, the Green Bay Packers. Caldwell said the concussion did not occur in practice.


Nov 9 2017 - Marvin Jones
  WR Marvin Jones has at least six receptions in the Lions' last four games, and at the midpoint of the season he's on pace to top 1,000 yards receiving for the first time in his career. Monday night, Jones caught seven passes for 107 yards and two touchdowns in a 30-17 win over the Green Bay Packers. More important, he's become one of the more dangerous deep threats in the league with seven catches of at least 25 yards.


Nov 9 2017 - Anthony Zettel
  DE Anthony Zettel recorded his team-leading fifth sack late in Monday night's win over the Packers. With Ziggy Ansah having another down season, Zettel has emerged as the Lions' best pass rusher. He's not the most athletic lineman, but he has a non-stop motor that's helped him take advantage of mismatches up front and he's a solid run defender with nine tackles for loss.


Nov 8 2017 - Eric Ebron
  TE Eric Ebron has been a bust of a fantasy player this year with just 18 catches for 195 yards through eight games. But Ebron has shown signs of life with big chain-moving catches each of the last two weeks, and he faces a Browns defense on Sunday that's among the worst in the league at covering tight ends. Ebron doesn't have a huge ceiling this week, but if your tight end is on bye, he could approach 75 yards receiving and maybe even score his first touchdown since Week 2.


Nov 8 2017 - Ezekiel Ansah
  DE Ziggy Ansah, slowed all season by a knee injury, is now dealing with a back problem. Ansah did not practice Wednesday because of a back injury he suffered Monday night against the Packers. He played 38 of a possible 59 defensive snaps last week, the second most by percentage (64.4) that he's played all season.


Nov 8 2017 - Jalen Reeves-Maybin
  LB Jalen Reeves-Maybin did not practice Wednesday because of an ankle injury. The rookie fourth-round pick has supplanted veteran Paul Worrilow as the Lions' No. 3 linebacker.


Nov 8 2017 - Theo Riddick
  RB Theo Riddick caught four passes last week against the Packers, giving him 200 for his career. Riddick joins Barry Sanders (352) and James Jones (285) as the only running backs in Lions history with at least 200 receptions.


Nov 7 2017 - Brian Mihalik
  OL Brian Mihalik got the start Monday in place of LT Greg Robinson (ankle). However, Mihalik exited with an undisclosed injury in the second quarter and was replaced by Emmett Cleary. Mihalik returned and caught QB Matthew Stafford's final pass of the night, a loss of 4 yards on a deflection.


Nov 7 2017 - Greg Robinson
  LT Greg Robinson (ankle) was inactive Monday for the second consecutive week.


Nov 7 2017 - Marvin Jones
  WR Marvin Jones had seven receptions for 107 yards and two touchdowns Monday in the Lions' 30-17 win over the Packers. Jones, who caught six passes for 205 yards and two touchdowns in last year's game at Lambeau Field, has four touchdowns in four career games vs. Green Bay.


Nov 7 2017 - Golden Tate
  WR Golden Tate caught seven passes for a game-high 113 yards Monday in the Lions' 30-17 win over the Packers.


Nov 7 2017 - Matthew Stafford
  QB Matthew Stafford lit up the Packers with 26-of-33 passing for 361 yards with two touchdowns and a passer rating of 132.4. He became the fourth quarterback younger than 30 to throw 200 career touchdown passes. "Those guys on the outside were doing a great job of winning," he said. "I was just trying to get it to the open guy. All sorts of guys were winning. And when we can spread people out and use a bunch of weapons like we did tonight, we are at our best."


Nov 3 2017 - Ameer Abdullah
  RB Ameer Abdullah leads the Lions with 101 carries for 369 yards, but the team has yet to hand the ball off to him on third down. "We use our guys where we think they fit in particular games," coach Jim Caldwell said. "There may be some games where he may get some. There may be other games that he doesn't. So we don't necessarily limit it to what he does consistently across the board. End of the year? Let's talk about it at that time."


Nov 3 2017 - Matthew Stafford
  QB Matthew Stafford needs one touchdown pass to reach 200 for his career. Assuming he reaches the milestone before the end of the season, Stafford, 29, will join Dan Marino (245), Peyton Manning (244) and Brett Favre (218) as the only quarterbacks in NFL history with 200 or more TDs before the age of 30.


Nov 3 2017 - Don Barclay
  OL Don Barclay signed with the Lions this week and will play a backup role at both the tackle and guard positions.


Nov 3 2017 - Kenny Golladay
  WR Kenny Golladay is expected to miss his fifth straight game Monday night with a strained hamstring. Golladay, who did not practice Thursday, has twice aggravated the injury trying to return. It's unclear when he will be back in the lineup.


Nov 1 2017 - Don Barclay
  OL Don Barclay, released off injured reserve by Green Bay last week, signed with Detroit. Barclay, an undrafted free agent, was with Green Bay since 2012.


Oct 30 2017 - A'Shawn Robinson
  DT A'Shawn Robinson was ejected in the final minute of Sunday's game after he threw two punches at Steelers guard Ramon Foster. Lions head coach Jim Caldwell said Robinson and three of his teammates who left the bench to get involved with the scrum -- cornerback DJ Hayden and defensive linemen Jeremiah Valoaga and Cornelius Washington -- will be subject to internal team discipline along with whatever punishment the NFL deems fit. All four players could be fined.


Oct 30 2017 - Jacquies Smith
  DE Jacques Smith re-signed with the Lions on Monday, two days after he was released to make room for P Sam Martin's return. The Lions placed backup interior lineman Tim Lelito on injured reserve to clear a roster spot.


Oct 30 2017 - Dwayne Washington
  RB Dwayne Washington left Sunday's game with a concussion and is in danger of missing games for the second time this year. Washington, who resumed his big-back role against the Steelers, missed four games with a quad pull earlier this year.


Oct 30 2017 - T.J. Lang
  G T.J. Lang made his 100th career start on Sunday.


Oct 30 2017 - Kenny Golladay
  WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) missed his fourth consecutive game Sunday.


Oct 30 2017 - Matt Prater
  PK Matt Prater accounted for all of Detroit's points Sunday with five field goals.


Oct 30 2017 - Matthew Stafford
  QB Matthew Stafford completed 27 of 45 passes for 423 yards for the Lions, but they couldn't score a touchdown. Detroit drove inside the Steelers' 10 on three second-half possessions, but came away with just a field goal.
