  Lions | Kerryon Johnson practicing    Wed Dec 4, 12:32 PM

Detroit Lions RB Kerryon Johnson (knee) will practice Wednesday, Dec. 4.

Footballguys view: Johnson has been on Injured Reserve with this knee injury and by returning to practice it opens up a three-week window for the Lions to decide whether or not to activate him. The earliest he could return is Week 16, so the Lions roll on with Bo Scarbrough as their lead back for now.

  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 | Kyle Sloter signed off Arizona PS    Sat Nov 30, 02:54 PM

QB Kyle Sloter was signed by the Detroit Lions off the Arizona Cardinals' practice squad on Saturday, Nov. 30.

Footballguys view: We've admired Sloter in crazy deep dynasty formats when he was undrafted with the Broncos a few years ago. He's bounced around (Vikings, Cardinals) since then and now finds himself as the backup to Lions starter David Blough. We'll see if the Lions get Matthew Stafford (back) out there at some point later this year or if they just roll with Blough for the rest of the season.

  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.

  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.
