Shark Bites for Detroit Lions 2020 | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Shark Bites

Lions CB Darius Slay (hamstring) and DT Damon Harrison (groin) are active for today's game against the Raiders. Slay returns after missing last week's game. Harrison merely entered the day questionable. DT A'Shawn Robinson is also active after sustaining a Friday ankle injury that rendered him questionable. MLive's Kyle Meinke says the ankle is clearly a "problem." None of the 3 is a high-level IDP for Week 9.

The Lions have ruled S Tracy Walker (knee) out for Sunday's game against the Raiders. That should leave Tavon Wilson and Will Harris as the top 2 safeties. CB Darius Slay (hamstring) and DT Damon Harrison (groin) are questionable.

Lions S Tracy Walker left in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's win over the Giants with a right knee injury and did not return. HC Matt Patricia said after the game that Walker would be in for further evaluation Monday. Rookie S Will Harris saw the biggest playing-time spike, matching starter Tavon Wilson at 82% of the defensive snaps. Harris would likely start in Walker's place if the incumbent misses further time.

Lions DT Damon Harrison (groin) is active for today’s game against the Giants. Use him as you normally would in IDP lineups.

The Lions have ruled CB Darius Slay (hamstring) out for Sunday's game against the Giants. DT Damon Harrison (groin) is questionable. He missed only Thursday's practice, though, between full workouts Wednesday and Friday. Harrison's a low-level IDP even if active.

Lions RB Kerryon Johnson will be placed on IR after undergoing a procedure on his injured knee, HC Matt Patricia announced on Tuesday. The team hopes to get Johnson back this season, but he's out until at least Week 16. So he can be dropped in redraft leagues. We'll see if Detroit adds anything to its backfield, but for now it'll be Ty Johnson as the lead back and J.D. McKissic as the change-of-pace. Johnson has a shot at RB2 value the rest of the way and is a priority add off waiver wires this week.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Lions RB Kerryon Johnson is expected to miss "some time" with his knee injury. "For now, Johnson will be called week to week," Schefter adds. That's the only update we've gotten on Johnson today, so we're still somewhat in the dark here. We can at least say that Johnson will miss Sunday's game against the Giants. That'll leave Ty Johnson as Detroit's lead back and J.D. McKissic as the #2.

Lions RB Kerryon Johnson suffered a knee injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Vikings and is questionable to return. We'll pass along an update when we get one. Johnson's absence leaves Detroit with RBs Ty Johnson and J.D. McKissic.

Lions CBs Darius Slay (hamstring) and Quandre Diggs (hamstring) are active for today's game against the Vikings. DL Da'Shawn Hand (elbow) is inactive.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport labels Packers WR Geronimo Allison (concussion, chest) a "game-time call" for today's tilt with the Raiders. That's a 1 pm ET kickoff, so we'll get Allison's status by noon. He'll be a risky WR3 if active.

Packers WR Geronimo Allison (concussion, chest) has been upgraded to questionable for Week 7. So it looks like he has a shot to play against the Raiders on Sunday. We'll get his official status by noon ET.

Packers WR Geronimo Allison left in the 3rd quarter of Monday night's game against the Lions after colliding helmet-to-helmet with Detroit S Tracy Walker. It'll be surprising if Allison doesn't enter the league concussion protocol off that play, but we'll see about the diagnosis.

Lions S Quandre Diggs (hamstring) and DE Da'Shawn Hand (elbow) are inactive for tonight's game against the Packers. CB Darius Slay (hamstring) and DT A'Shawn Robinson (knee) are active after hitting the weekend questionable.

Lions TE T.J. Hockenson (concussion) is active for tonight's game against the Packers. The rookie has totaled just 10 targets, 5 catches, 35 yards and 1 TD over his last 3 games.

Lions TE T.J. Hockenson cleared the concussion protocol Sunday and is expected to play against the Packers on Monday night, the Detroit Free Press reports. Hockenson suffered his concussion back in Week 4, before the bye. But he practiced in full this week and appeared on track to play. Congratulations if you waited for the rookie for Week 6.

Lions TE T.J. Hockenson (concussion) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Lions. He put in a full week of practice and is expected to be cleared by game time, according to Tim Twentyman of the team's official website. Hockenson has totaled just 10 targets in his last 3 games, so he shouldn’t be considered more than a low-end TE1.

Lions HC Matt Patricia said Friday that TE T.J. Hockenson is "trending towards playing" against the Packers on Monday night. The rookie has been "doing everything in practice," per Patricia, and just needs to gain final clearance. We should know Hockenson's status by Saturday afternoon.

Lions TE T.J. Hockenson (concussion) got in a limited practice on Thursday. So he's made some progress through the protocol but still has multiple stages to pass before being cleared for Monday night's game against the Packers. We'll get another update on the rookie's status tomorrow.

Lions TE T.J. Hockenson left Sunday's game against the Chiefs after he tried to leap over a defender and hit the turf hard. He's certainly going for a concussion check and might have also suffered a shoulder injury. We'll update his status when we learn more.

Update: The Lions announced that Hockenson is out with a concussion.

Lions QB Matt Stafford (hip) is active for today’s game against the Chiefs. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported this morning that Stafford will be playing through “a lot of hip pain.” That obviously adds risk to his profile, but we still like his upside in this matchup.
