Davis questionable for Week 1 | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Lions MLB Jarrad Davis is officially questionable for Sunday's opener against the Cardinals with the ankle injury that looked like a potential season-ender when he suffered it. Davis managed to put in limited practices all week, but mLive's Kyle Meinke says he "sure doesn’t look like a guy who is ready to play in Arizona." We'd try to not use Davis even if he's active for Week 1 -- especially because the late Sunday afternoon kickoff makes him tough to wait for. But Davis looks like he'll return to the lineup soon.

The Lions on Saturday placed MLB Jarrad Davis on IR, as he deals with knee and ankle injuries. The move clears the way for rookie Jahlani Tavai to start the final 3 games. Tavai racked up 10 tackles in the Week 14 game that Davis left early, while playing just 68% of the snaps against the Vikings.

The Lions have ruled MLB Jarrad Davis (ankle) out for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. That should mean more playing time for rookie LB Jahlani Tavai. DT A'Shawn Robinson (shoulder) has also been ruled out. Detroit has also deemed DT John Atkins (illness) questionable. That doesn't matter for IDP purposes, but missing Atkins in addition to Robinson would leave the team without 2 of its top 4 DTs from last week's lineup. LB Christian Jones (shoulder) is also questionable. That's another unimportant designation for IDP, but Jones' absence would similarly chip away at Detroit's regular starting lineup.

Lions MLB Jarrad Davis is active for today's game against the Eagles. It'll mark his 1st game back since the preseason ankle injury. Davis carries risk for your IDP lineup, but he did enter each of the 1st 2 games questionable and on limited practices. There's upside to Davis as well.

Lions MLB Jarrad Davis (ankle) is inactive for the 2nd straight week. He increased his practice work in Week 2, though, and appears to be trending toward a return soon from his preseason ankle injury. We'll see about his status for Week 3. Rookie Jahlani Tavai will remain in Davis' starting spot against the Chargers.

Lions MLB Jarrad Davis is once again questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers. He turned up inactive after a "questionable" tag in Week 1 and is still working back from his preseason ankle injury. The Detroit News reports that Davis was "more active" in practice this week, but he remained limited in every session. IDP owners should probably wait until we get at least a full game from Davis before popping him back into fantasy football lineups.
