Most Recent Shark Bites

Lions S Tracy Walker left Sunday's game with a concussion. If he can't complete the league protocol in time for next Sunday's visit to Cleveland, S Dean Marlowe would fill in next to Will Harris.

Lions QB Jared Goff played through a 1st-quarter oblique injury in the Week 10 tie vs. the Steelers. "Just kind of nagged me a little bit throughout the game," Goff said afterward. "I felt like I was fine to stay in there and felt like it didn’t affect me throughout the game. But it’ll be a little sore tomorrow but I’ll be fine." It sounds like Goff will be available for this weekend's game vs. the Browns, but he'll again be a bottom-barrel QB2.

Lions RB Jamaal Williams (thigh) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Steelers. RB D’Andre Swift busted with Williams out for Detroit’s last game. But Williams’ absence is still a boost to Swift’s Week 10 fantasy value.

Lions RB Jamaal Williams (thigh) did not practice on Wednesday. He missed Week 8 with this injury and is now in danger of missing Sunday's game vs. the Steelers. Williams' absence would be a boost for RB D'Andre Swift.

The Lions claimed WR Josh Reynolds off waivers from the Titans. Reynolds could find playing time in Detroit's weak WR corps but is unlikely to become a fantasy factor. You can leave him on the waiver wire.

Ravens HC John Harbaugh said after Sunday's win over the Vikings that S DeShon Elliott suffered a torn pectoral muscle and a torn biceps, according to Jonas Shaffer of The Baltimore Sun. That will end Elliott's season. Brandon Stephens figures to step into Elliott's role.

Lions RB Jamaal Williams (thigh) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Eagles. It’s a surprise after he’d been playing through questionable tags most of the season. Williams’ absence is a significant boost to RB D’Andre Swift’s Week 8 fantasy value.

Lions RB Jamaal Williams (thigh) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Eagles. He was added to the injury report as a limited participant on Thursday and limited again on Friday. Williams has been playing through questionable tags for most of the season, so we’re expecting him to be out there on Sunday. But his status is at least worth checking on when we get Detroit’s inactives.

Lions DE Charles Harris left Sunday's game against the Bengals with a hip injury and did not return. We'll look for more details on his status early in the week.

Ravens S DeShon Elliott (quad) is active for today's game against the Chargers.

Lions TE T.J. Hockenson (knee) is active for today’s game vs. the Bengals. He remained limited in practice this week and won’t be playing at 100% today.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Lions TE T.J. Hockenson (knee) is expected to play vs. the Bengals today. Hockenson played through this injury last week, registering his usual 80+% snap rate. He, of course, finished with just 2 catches on 3 targets for 22 yards.

Lions TE T.J. Hockenson (knee) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Bengals after getting in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. He was in the same boat last week and ended up playing 81% of the offensive snaps in the loss to Minnesota. Hockenson is fully expected to play this Sunday.

Lions TE T.J. Hockenson (knee) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. He seems to be following the same routine as last week, when he put in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. Hockenson is fully expected to play vs. the Bengals this weekend, but don't expect him to be at 100%.

Lions TE T.J. Hockenson (knee) was sidelined for Wednesday's practice. He played through this knee issue last week but mustered just 2 catches on 3 targets for 22 yards. It'd be nice to see him get in a full practice before this weekend's game vs. the Bengals.

Lions WR Quintez Cephus broke his collarbone in Sunday's loss to the Vikings, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. "It'll be an extended absence and potentially season-ending," Pelissero adds. Cephus can be dropped in all redraft leagues. Detroit will move forward with WRs Amon-Ra St. Brown, Kalif Raymond, KhaDarel Hodge and Trinity Benson. WR Tyrell Williams (concussion) is eligible to come off IR later this week, although it's unclear if he's ready.

Lions WR Quintez Cephus suffered a shoulder injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game vs. the Vikings and is questionable to return. We'll update you when we know more.

Lions TE T.J. Hockenson (knee) is active for today’s game against the Vikings. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday and admitted that he won’t be at 100% today. Hockenson is a riskier fantasy play than usual.

Lions RBs D'Andre Swift (groin) and Jamaal Williams (hip) are active for today’s game vs. the Vikings. We’re expecting both guys to be available to play their usual roles.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Lions RB Jamaal Williams (hip) is expected to play vs. the Vikings today. He was limited in practice all week, but we never sensed any concern about Williams' status. He should be ready for his usual role today.
