  Lions | Jeff Driskel to IR    Sat Nov 30, 04:01 PM

Detroit Lions QB Jeff Driskel (hamstring) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Nov. 30. QB Joe Callahan was signed to the practice squad.

Footballguys view: David Blough was the starter for the Lions on Thanksgiving and did an admirable job. This hamstring injury now ends Driskel's season and we'll see Blough continue to start so long as Matthew Stafford (back) continues to miss games.

  Lions | David Blough to be starter for Week 13    Wed Nov 27, 08:17 PM

Detroit Lions QB David Blough will be the starting quarterback for the Lions in Week 13. QB Jeff Driskel (hamstring) will serve as the No. 2 quarterback during the game.

Footballguys view: Blough has a good arm and he's a fearless thrower, which could salvage some value for Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones, but also could feed the Bears defense some interceptions.

Detroit Lions QB Jeff Driskel (hamstring) said Tuesday, Nov. 26, he's progressing toward a return to health. 'Yeah, it's definitely gotten better each and every day,' Driskel said. 'That's just a testament to the guys in the training room - all of those guys that are here all hours of the day working with us.'Yeah, so just doing what you can to get your body right and be out there. That's part of the game and that's part of this league is getting your body good to go each and every week.'

  Lions | Detroit's Tuesday practice report    Tue Nov 26, 05:11 PM

Detroit Lions CB Jamal Agnew (ankle), WR Marvin Hall (foot), CB Rashaan Melvin (ribs) and QB Matthew Stafford (hip, back) did not practice for a second straight day Tuesday, Nov. 26. DE Trey Flowers (concussion) was upgraded to a limited practice, while QB Jeff Driskel (hamstring), DL Da'Shawn Hand (ankle), DT Damon Harrison (knee), TE T.J. Hockenson (shoulder), P Sam Martin (abdomen) and DB Tracy Walker (knee) were limited for a second straight day. OL Frank Ragnow (concussion) was upgraded to full practice, while OG Kenny Wiggins (knee) again practiced in full. Detroit only participated in a walk-through Tuesday, so all designations are estimates.

  Lions | Jeff Driskel still sore    Tue Nov 26, 03:10 PM

Detroit Lions QB Jeff Driskel (hamstring) is still 'pretty sore,' according to comments made by head coach Matt Patricia on Tuesday, Nov. 26. However, Patricia suggested that Driskel would have practiced Tuesday if Detroit had scheduled more than just a walk-through.

Footballguys view: It's pretty telling when a guy can't participate in a walk-through. They might go to undrafted rookie David Blough if Driskel can't go on Thanksgiving against the Bears.

  Lions | Jeff Driskel throws for 269 yards, TD    Sun Nov 10, 05:56 PM

Detroit Lions QB Jeff Driskel completed 27-of-46 passes for 269 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 10 against the Chicago Bears in place of the injured QB Matthew Stafford (back).

Footballguys view: Driskel had a good first drive and a nice improvisational throw late for a long score, but otherwise had trouble moving the offense. He'll at least support a pulse for Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones, but the ceiling games won't be in play without Matthew Stafford.

  Lions | Jeff Driskel to start Week 10's game    Sun Nov 10, 09:24 AM

  Lions | Matthew Stafford will not play in Week 10    Sun Nov 10, 09:15 AM

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford (back) has fractured bones in his back and doctors will not clear him to play in Week 10's game against the Chicago Bears, according to a source. QB Jeff Driskel will start in Stafford's place.

Footballguys view: Stafford could also miss next week against Dallas and maybe another week. Driskel is athletic and could be good enough in real football terms in what should be a low-scoring affair, but he makes Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones much riskier starts and the Bears defense a better play today.

  Lions | Jeff Driskel joins Lions    Tue Sep 17, 10:42 AM

Free-agent QB Jeff Driskel (Bengals) signed an undisclosed deal with the Detroit Lions Tuesday, Sept. 17.

Footballguys view: They released veteran Josh Johnson on Tuesday and must see Driskel as a better option. Driskel gives the Lions veteran depth behind Matthew Stafford. The only other quarterback on their roster is rookie David Blough.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Jeff Driskel (hamstring) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Aug. 31, according to a source.

'I'm still competing at quarterback,' Driskel said. 'That's what I want to be. That's what I think I can be. But I just want to show that I can add value to this team in other ways and show that I want to contribute and can contribute.'

Footballguys view: Driskel is athletic enough to play receiver. He's competing with 2019 fourth-round pick Ryan Finley to be the primary backup to Andy Dalton this season.

Footballguys view: Driskel was ineffective for most of the game but came up with two touchdowns when the contest was already decided. He did nothing to change his status as a career backup during this extended opportunity and will try to play spoiler at Pittsburgh next week.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Jeff Driskel completed 25-of-38 passes for 236 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 13 against the Denver Broncos.

Footballguys view: Driskel lost AJ Green early and didn't do much as a runner, but wasn't a complete disaster against the Broncos. He's still only a desperation QB2/Superflex next week at the Chargers house.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Jeff Driskel completed 17-of-29 passes for 155 yards, one touchdown and no interception in Week 12 against the Cleveland Browns, coming on for the injured QB Andy Dalton (thumb).

Footballguys view: The offense didn't seem to suffer when Driskel came in although the Bengals were facing a team nursing a huge lead. The Broncos defense isn't letting up, so the Bengals offensive outlook is dimmer next week no matter who starts at quarterback.

  Bengals | Two expected to compete for backup QB job    Mon Jun 11, 12:25 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QBs Jeff Driskel and Matt Barkley are expected to compete for the backup quarterback job during training camp.

Footballguys view: Barkley has more experience and that may give him a leg up in the competition. Driskel is athletic and can make throws on the move with ease, but he's raw and needs to make better decisions with the ball when under duress. He's more interesting in deep dynasty leagues right now because of the unknown surrounding his game.

  Bengals | Jeff Driskel broke arm during season    Sun Feb 18, 12:27 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Jeff Driskel (arm) suffered a broken arm during practice in December and had to undergo surgery to have a rod inserted to stabilize the arm, according to a source. Driskel should be ready for the start of offseason workouts.

Footballguys view: The Bengals are going to need Driskel at full strength since A.J. McCarron is set to be an unrestricted free agent. Driskel will likely have competition to be the primary backup to starter Andy Dalton.

  Bengals | Jeff Driskel designated for return    Tue Dec 12, 04:44 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Jeff Driskel (fingers) was designated for return from the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Dec. 12.

Footballguys view: It's an ....interesting move for the Bengals. Both Andy Dalton and A.J. McCarron are healthy, so getting Driskel on the field...even the practice field...will be incredibly difficult. They seem committed to Driskel as a reserve player and backup of the future. McCarron is set to hit free agency (RFA or UFA yet to be determined) this offseason.
