Report: Lions QB Jared Goff dealing with oblique injury

Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff’s status for Week 11 is uncertain after sustaining an oblique injury in last week’s game, NFL Network reported Tuesday.

The Lions will see how well Goff can throw by Wednesday before determining his status for this week’s game against the Cleveland Browns (5-5).

The news comes amid three transactions involving more kickers.

David Blough would likely get the nod at quarterback if Goff is unable to go. Blough mopped up in the Lions’ blowout loss to Philadelphia, taking four snaps and rushing for six yards. He also appeared in one game in 2020. He started five games in 2019.

Goff is completing 66.1 percent of his passes for 2,107 yards, with eight touchdowns and six interceptions in his first season in Detroit. His ineffectiveness has contributed to the team’s 0-8-1 record.

Goff went 14-for-25 passing for 112 yards against the Steelers.

Also Tuesday, the Lions signed kicker Riley Patterson off the New England Patriots’ practice squad. He’s the sixth kicker for Detroit this season.

Current kicker Ryan Santoso missed an extra point and a potential game-winning 48-yard field goal in overtime against the Steelers. Santoso, who was elevated to replace Austin Seibert, was released from the practice squad Tuesday. Seibert was put on injured reserve last week and must miss at least two more games.

The Lions also signed K Aldrick Rosas to their practice squad. Rosas made the Pro Bowl in 2018 with the New York Giants.

The team also waived wide receiver Geronimo Allison.

The Lions face a short week after the Browns’ game; they play Thanksgiving Day against the Chicago Bears.
