  Lions | Kenny Golladay to miss another game    Fri Sep 18, 05:30 PM

Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 18, and has been ruled out for Week 2.

Footballguys view: Marvin Jones, TJ Hockenson and Danny Amendola could all receiver extra targets vs Green Bay and fifth-round pick Quintez Cephus will get the start outside in place of Golladay after he got 10 targets (and only 3 catches) last week.

  Lions | Detroit's Week 2 injury report    Fri Sep 18, 05:02 PM

Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) and CB Desmond Trufant (hamstring) did not participate in practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 2 against the Green Bay Packers. OG Joe Dahl (groin) did not practice Friday, Sept. 18, and has also been ruled out. TE Hunter Bryant (hamstring) was upgraded to a limited practice Friday but has been ruled out as well. OT Halapoulivaati Vaitai (foot) did not practice all week but is listed as questionable. S C.J. Moore (hamstring), CB Darryl Roberts (calf) and DT Nick Williams (shoulder) were limited Friday and also listed as questionable. LB Jason Cabinda (ankle) and CB Jeff Okudah (hamstring) practiced in full Friday and have been removed from the injury report.

Footballguys view: Trufant being out is bad bad news for the Lions secondary, who will also be without slot corner Justin Coleman. At least the #3 overall pick Jeff Okudah will be healthy enough to make his debut, but he could face Davante Adams a lot on Sunday.

  Lions | Kenny Golladay to be limited    Fri Sep 18, 12:38 PM

Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) will be 'very limited' in practice Friday, Sept. 18, as he deals with a hamstring injury, head coach Matt Patricia said.

Footballguys view: Golladay is likely out this week and a very risky play if he does suit up. Marvin Jones, Danny Amendola, and TJ Hockenson become more attractive if he sits.

  Lions | Kenny Golladay still sidelined    Thu Sep 17, 12:22 PM

Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) will remain out of practice Thursday, Sept. 17, as he deals with a hamstring injury, head coach Matt Patricia said.

Footballguys view: Golladay is not trending in the right direction. We'll see what he can do on Friday, but Fantasy GMs have to have other options at the ready. The Lions would look to more Marvin Jones Jr and Danny Amendola if Golladay has to miss another game.

The Detroit Lions have declared WR Kenny Golladay, S C.J. Moore, CB Jeff Okudah, OG Logan Stenberg, OT Halapoulivaati Vaitai, TE Hunter Bryant and RB Jonathan Williams inactive for Week 1.

Footballguys view: Quintez Cephus and Marvin Hall should get work in place of Golladay. Okudah being out will hurt the coverage against Allen Robinson and Anthony Miller. With Vaitai out, expect Jesse James to get more blocking snaps and perhaps less Danny Amendola out there today.

  Lions | More action for Quintez Cephus?    Fri Sep 11, 09:58 PM

Detroit Lions WR Quintez Cephus could see 'an expanded role' against the Chicago Bears in Week 1 if WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) is unable to play, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.

Footballguys view: Cephus has been a standout player for the Lions during training camp. The team picked him up in the fifth round of the 2020 NFL draft out of Wisconsin. Cephus posted 901 yards and seven touchdowns on 59 receptions in his final season for the Badgers. We love him in dynasty leagues and he might get a larger role than some think if Golladay has to miss Week 1.

RB D'Andre Swift (hip) was upgraded to a full practice Friday and has been removed from the injury report.

Footballguys view: Golladay is likely out and Danny Amendola isn't 100%, so it's looking like a big Marvin Jones and TJ Hockenson week against the Bears. Rookie Quintez Cephus could start in Golladay's place.
