Lions WR Golladay out for season finale vs. Vikings

Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay will not play in the regular-season finale against the visiting Minnesota Vikings, interim coach Darrell Bevell announced Thursday.

Golladay, 27, sustained a hip injury during the first half of the Lions’ 41-21 loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Nov. 1. He hasn’t played since.

Golladay has 20 catches for 338 yards and two touchdowns in five games this season after topping 1,000 receiving yards in each of the previous two campaigns. He was selected to the Pro Bowl with 65 catches for 1,190 yards and an NFL-high 11 touchdowns in 2019.

Now questions loom as to whether Golladay has played his last down with the Lions.

Golladay, who becomes an unrestricted free agent this offseason, said earlier this month that he’d be interested in a long-term deal with the team as opposed to being under the franchise tag.

Lions WR Golladay (hip) to miss second straight game

Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay will miss his second straight game Sunday with a hip injury.

Golladay has not practiced since sustaining the injury during the first half of the Nov. 1 loss to the Indianapolis Colts.

He missed the first two games of the season with a hamstring injury and has 20 catches for 338 yards and two touchdowns in five games.

Golladay, 27, was a Pro Bowl selection last season when he led the NFL with 11 touchdown receptions. He also has topped 1,000 receiving yards in each of the past two seasons.

Tight end T.J. Hockenson returned to the field Friday after missing Thursday’s practice with a toe injury. He is listed as questionable for Sunday’s home game against the Washington Football Team.

Kick returner Jamal Agnew (ribs), guard Joe Dahl (back), tackle Halapoulivaati Vaitai (foot), linebacker Jarrad Davis (knee) and defensive tackle Nick Williams (shoulder) are listed as questionable. Williams dis not practice Friday.

Report: Lions WR Golladay (hip) out for Week 9

Detroit Lions wideout Kenny Golladay is out for this week’s game and will be considered week-to-week with a hip injury, NFL Network reported Monday.

Golladay, who will undergo further testing, could land on injured reserve, which would sideline him for at least three games, per the report.

Golladay was injured during the first half of Sunday’s loss to the Indianapolis Colts and missed the entire second half. Golladay was targeted four times but didn’t record a catch. It’s unclear exactly when or how Golladay was injured.

Golladay missed the first two games of the season with a hamstring injury but leads the team with 338 receiving yards. He has 20 catches with two touchdowns.

The Lions play at Minnesota this week and would likely rely on Marvin Hall and rookie Quintez Cephus in Golladay’s absence.

Golladay has 183 catches for 3,068 yards and 21 touchdowns in 47 games (39 starts) for the Lions, who drafted him in the third round of the 2017 draft.

Lions WR Golladay returns to practice, on track for debut

Detroit Lions wideout Kenny Golladay returned to practice Wednesday and is on track to make his season debut Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals.

Golladay missed the first two weeks of the season after injuring his hamstring on Sept. 9.

Golladay, 26, had 65 receptions for 1,190 yards and a league-high 11 touchdowns last season to earn Pro Bowl honors for the first time in his career. He has 163 catches for 2,730 yards and 19 scores in his first three seasons with the Lions.

The Lions are off to an 0-2 start. Quarterback Matt Stafford’s top target and deep threat, Golladay averaged 18.3 yards per catch last season.

Stafford has completed just two passes of more than 20 yards through the first two weeks after completing eight through the first two weeks last year.

“He’s one of the top wideouts in the league and he’s shown that,” Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said Wednesday in a conference call. “His production the last years has been incredible. His style of play, his physical nature, you watch it, he’ll definitely bring a lot of juice to their offense.”

The Lions went with Marvin Hall and Quintez Cephus in Golladay’s absence.

As for Detroit’s defense, also dinged with a slew of hamstring injuries, cornerback Desmond Trufant (hamstring) is still out.

Lions WR Golladay, CB Trufant ruled out vs. Packers

Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay and cornerback Desmond Trufant have been ruled out for this weekend’s game against the Green Bay Packers with respective hamstring injuries, the team announced Friday.

Guard Joe Dahl (groin) and tight end Hunter Bryant (hamstring) have also been ruled out for the Lions (0-1).

Golladay also sat out Detroit’s 27-23 season-opening setback to the Chicago Bears on Sunday. He had 65 receptions for 1,190 yards and 11 touchdowns last season to earn Pro Bowl honors for the first time in his career.

Matthew Stafford fared well without Golladay against the Bears, throwing for 297 yards and a touchdown pass to tight end T.J. Hockenson. Wideout Danny Amendola joined Hockenson with a team-high five receptions, while Marvin Jones Jr. had four.

Trufant and fellow cornerback Justin Coleman (hamstring) were injured in that game, with the latter being placed on injured reserve two days later.

Sunday’s game against the Packers (1-0) appears to be shaping up as the NFL debut for cornerback Jeff Okudah, who was the third overall pick of the 2020 NFL Draft.

Okudah, 21, played in all 14 games for Ohio State last season, recording 35 tackles and adding nine pass breakups, three interceptions and two forced fumbles. He became the first Ohio State cornerback to earn unanimous All-America honors.

Trufant, 30, had a career-high four interceptions in just nine games with the Atlanta Falcons last season, but he missed four games midseason due to turf toe, then sat out the final three games with a broken forearm that required surgery. It was the second time in four years he was limited to nine games.

A first-round pick out of Washington in 2013, Trufant had spent his entire career with the Falcons before joining Detroit. He had 13 interceptions and broke up 79 passes in 97 games (all starts) for Atlanta.

Lions WR Golladay, CB Trufant out of practice again

Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay and cornerback Desmond Trufant did not practice on Thursday because of their respective hamstring injuries.

Golladay, who missed practice on Wednesday, sat out the Lions’ 27-23 season-opening setback to Chicago on Sunday.

For his part, Trufant sustained his injury during that game.

Cornerback Jeff Okudah, who was the third overall pick of the 2020 NFL Draft, returned to practice on Wednesday and could be in line to face the Green Bay Packers (1-0) on Sunday (1 p.m. ET).

Golladay, 26, had 65 receptions for 1,190 yards and 11 touchdowns last season to earn Pro Bowl honors for the first time in his career.

Matthew Stafford fared well without Golladay against the Bears, throwing for 297 yards and a touchdown pass to tight end T.J. Hockenson. Wideout Danny Amendola joined Hockenson with a team-high five receptions, while Marvin Jones Jr. had four.

Trufant and fellow cornerback Justin Coleman were injured in that game, with the latter being placed on injured reserve two days later.

Trufant, 30, had a career-high four interceptions in just nine games with the Atlanta Falcons last season, but he missed four games midseason due to turf toe, then sat out the final three games with a broken forearm that required surgery. It was the second time in four years he was limited to nine games.

A first-round pick out of Washington in 2013, Trufant had spent his entire career with the Falcons, nabbing 13 interceptions and breaking up 79 passes in 97 games (all starts).

The potential addition of Okudah would be significant to a secondary that allowed Mitchell Trubisky and the Bears to rack up three fourth-quarter touchdowns in a Week 1 stunner.

Okudah, 21, played in all 14 games for Ohio State last season, recording 35 tackles and adding nine pass breakups, three interceptions and two forced fumbles. He became the first Ohio State cornerback to earn unanimous All-America honors.
