Lions TE T.J. Hockenson exited late in Sunday's loss to the Raiders after taking a big hit. HC Matt Patricia said Monday, though, that Hockenson isn't in the concussion protocol and just had the wind knocked out of him. The rookie will be available for this weekend's game against the Bears.
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.
