Lions LB Devon Kennard (hip) and CB Darius Slay (ankle) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. Kennard put in limited practices Thursday and Friday after sitting out Wednesday. Slay popped up on the injury report Thursday and was limited Thursday and Friday. We'll update their statuses Sunday afternoon. Neither is much of an IDP option.
Lions LB Devon Kennard left Sunday's loss to the Rams early with a hip injury. We'll see about his status heading into Week 14. Kennard has been just a low-level IDP options for most of the year, though next Sunday presents an upside matchup with Arizona.
The Lions have opened training camp with DE Ezekiel Ansah on the PUP list and LB Devon Kennard on the non-football injury list. Ansah is still working his way back from spring knee surgery. Detroit has not revealed Kennard's injury, after the free-agent addition worked out with the team in the spring. According to the Detroit Free Press, Kennard is expected to be back before the regular season. We'll see when either player actually returns. The absences of 2 key pass rushers is tough for a defense that ranked 23rd in sack rate last season.
The Giants have ruled OLB Devon Kennard (foot, hamstring) and S Brandon Meriweather (knee) out for Sunday's game against the Jets. According to NJ.com, Craig Dahl will start in place of Meriweather, while several players are expected to pick up Kennard's snaps in various packages.
The Giants have ruled LB Devon Kennard out for Sunday's game against the Niners because of the hamstring game that removed him early from the win at Buffalo. Kennard has played quite well early this season, displaying coverage ability to go with the pass-rushing that he delivered as a rookie. He's worth hanging on to in IDP league's of decent depth. DEs Robert Ayers (hamstring) and George Selvie (calf) will also miss the game, leaving more playing time available to Kerry Wynn, Owa Odighizuwa and Damontre Moore. Wynn looks like the only usable IDP for most fantasy football leagues.
Giants OLB Devon Kennard left Sunday's win at Buffalo with a hamstring injury. We'll keep an eye on his status through the practice week heading into a positive matchup Sunday night with the Niners. Kennard has showed coverage ability this year after emerging as a pass-rush threat in 2014. He's looking like an enticing IDP prospect for 2015 and beyond.
The Giants on Wednesday fired DC Perry Fewell and DBs coach Peter Giunta. Don't expect the Giants to suddenly turn 3-4 in their base defense, given that the 4-3 has always been a staple of Tom Coughlin teams. But a new coordinator could opt for a little more variety in his fronts and perhaps an increase in blitzing. We'll be curious to see who the Giants select, how they approach free agency -- re: Jason Pierre-Paul -- and whether they make significant changes to the LB corps and/or secondary.
