The Lions selected EDGE Josh Paschal in the 2nd round of the NFL Draft. Paschal delivered career highs in tackles (52), tackles for loss (15) and sacks (5) as a senior. Paschal brings decent speed and athleticism but profiles as more of a run defender than threatening pass rusher. He, of course, follows Aidan Hutchinson to a Detroit team that also returns DEs Charles Harris and Romeo Okwara. Paschal might be hard-pressed for early playing time and might top out as a rotational player.

EDGE Aidan Hutchinson landed with the Lions in the 2022 NFL Draft. Hutchinson topped 60 tackles in each of his 2 full seasons starting at Michigan (among 4 total). He finished with a school-record 14 sacks in his final season. But Hutchinson’s career 0.76 tackles for loss per game ranks just 16th in this edge class. He’s an above-average athlete and hard worker but doesn’t profile as quite a top-shelf pass rusher.

Lions LB Jalen Reeves-Maybin (shoulder) and DL Michael Brockers (neck) are active for today's game against the Packers. Each guy entered the day questionable.

Lions LB Jalen Reeves-Maybin (shoulder) and DL Michael Brockers (knee) are active for today's game against the Falcons.

The Lions on Monday placed LB Alex Anzalone on IR with the right-shoulder injury he suffered Sunday. That knocks him out for the final 3 games of the season. Anzalone has had issues with that shoulder in the past. We'll see about his status heading into 2022. Anzalone is set to hit free agency in March. As for this year's Lions, Josh Woods would be a primary fill-in but also suffered a shoulder injury against the Cardinals. We'll see about his status this week. Jalen Reeves-Maybin looks like the best bet for playing time among Detroit LBs.

Lions LB Alex Anzalone left Sunday's win over the Cardinals with a shoulder injury and did not return. That marks the 2nd straight game in which Anzalone has gotten hurt, following a Week 14 ankle issue that left him questionable for Sunday. It'll be tough to like him for Week 16 IDP lineups, even if he makes it back from this one. LB Josh Woods also left Sunday's game with a shoulder injury. We'll see who Detroit has available heading into next Sunday.

Lions LB Alex Anzalone (ankle) is active for today's game against the Cardinals. DE Michael Brockers (knee) and LB Jalen Reeves-Maybin (shoulder) are also active. The presence of Anzalone and Reeves-Maybin likely keeps LB Josh Woods from being IDP relevant after 2 straight weeks of nice tackle production. This is a defense to avoid if possible in IDP lineups.


The Lions have downgraded S Tracy Walker to out for today’s game against the Cardinals with an illness. Rookie Jalen Elliott started in Walker’s place last week, with Walker on the COVID list.

Lions MLB Alex Anzalone left Sunday's loss to the Broncos in the 1st half with an ankle injury. In his absence, Josh Woods led Detroit LBs in playing time at 94% and racked up a game-high 13 tackles. Rookie Derrick Barnes followed at 69%, with LB Jalen Reeves-Maybin inactive.

Lions EDGE Charles Harris (illness) is active for today's game against the Broncos

Lions EDGE Charles Harris is questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos. He missed practice the past 2 days with an illness. We'll check his status Sunday.

The Lions have placed S Tracy Walker on the COVID list, which will knock him out for Sunday's game against the Broncos. C.J. Moore looks like the next guy up at safety, while S Dean Marlowe gains tackle upside.

Lions DL Michael Brockers (knee) is active for today's game against the Bears. He's merely a low-end IDP option, though.

The Lions have ruled EDGE Trey Flowers (knee) and CB A.J. Parker (ankle) out for Thursday's game against the Bears. DL Michael Brockers (knee) is questionable after being limited in practice the past 2 days.

The Lions have ruled EDGE Trey Flowers (knee) out for Sunday's game against the Browns. S Tracy Walker (concussion) is questionable. We'll check his status Sunday.
