Shark Bites

Lions LB Jamie Collins (neck) and S Jayron Kearse (hip) are inactive for today’s game against the Buccaneers. Kearse’s absence could mean a return to starter duty for Tracy Walker. Playing time for Lions LBs behind Collins lacks claruty

Recent Shark Bites

The Lions have released LB Jamie Collins. The team tried to trade him, but teams were likely scared off by the big contract. The veteran will now be free to sign with whomever, and will likely find a suitor. We'll see if he can recapture IDP value.

Lions HC Dan Campbell confirmed Thursday reports that the team is trying to trade LB Jamie Collins. That makes sense as Detroit tries to go younger at the position. The Lions reportedly plan to increase playing time for rookie LB Derrick Barnes beginning this week. Alex Anzalone still looks like the best bet for snaps for the time being, though we'll see just how much Detroit is looking to change things up. No Lions LB is especially attractive for IDP use right now. Collins could be a low-cost upside option in a new setting.

Lions LB Jamie Collins (neck) is inactive for the 2nd straight game today against the Vikings. Without Collins last week, Jahlani Tavai led the LBs in playing time at 81%, with Jarrad Davis following at 51% and Reggie Ragland 3rd at 49%. Davis led the group with 9 tackles (though just 4 of those solos). This isn't a situation worth targeting for IDP lineups.

Lions LB Jamie Collins (neck) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings. After missing Week 16, he put in just a single limited practice Friday. He doesn't look like a good bet for this game. We'll check his status Sunday morning.

Lions LB Jamie Collins is questionable for Saturday's game against the Buccaneers after missing the entire practice week with a neck injury. That doesn't make him a particularly attractive IDP option, especially in what was already a lackluster scoring matchup. S Jayron Kearse (hip) is also questionable. He just joined the injury report Thursday as a limited participant, so it looks like he picked the injury in that day's workout. We'll check the status on both players Saturday afternoon.
