Riddick was wearing a large cast on his left wrist Monday but indicated he didn't have surgery to repair his injury, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. Riddick missed the Lions' final four regular season games due to a wrist injury, which forced him to be placed on injured reserve ahead of the team's playoff loss Saturday. Although he was sporting a hard cast as Detroit cleared out its locker room Monday, Riddick said he'll be ready by the time next season rolls around. Despite that expectation, Riddick's situation figures to continue to be updated over the offseason.
Riddick (wrist) was placed on injured reserve Saturday. After already being ruled out for Sunday's game with a wrist injury, the Lions opted to place Riddick on injured reserve and promote receiver Jace Billingsley from the practice squad. With that, Riddick will not be available should the Lions advance to the playoffs. The Lions will have to lean on Dwayne Washington and Zach Zenner out of the backfield for the remainder of the season. Riddick finished the season with 92 carries for 357 yards (3.9 YPC) and one touchdown and added 53 receptions for 371 yards and five scores.
Riddick (wrist) has been ruled out of Sunday night's game against the Packers. Riddick has gone three weeks without practicing, so despite the importance of Sunday's contest, it comes as no surprise that his wrist injury will keep him sidelined for a fourth straight game. With Riddick out again, Zach Zenner and Dwayne Washington will continue to lead the Lions' backfield charge.
Riddick (wrist) remains sidelined at Friday's practice, ESPN's Michael Rothstein reports. Riddick's wrist injury has prevented him from practicing since Dec. 9, making it likely he'll miss a fourth straight game Sunday versus the Packers. While his status will receive an official update following Friday's practice, Zach Zenner and Dwayne Washington appear destined to lead the Lions' rushing attack once again in Week 17.
Riddick (wrist) was a non-participant at practice Wednesday. Still unspecified, Riddick's wrist injury continues to hinder his ability to take part in practice, let alone suit up on game day. As a result, he hasn't practiced since Dec. 9, or two days before he logged the first of three absences during this current run. A return to drills Thursday or Friday would be the first indication that game action is possible on Sunday night against the Packers. If Riddick fails to do so, though, the Lions will rely on a combination of Zach Zenner and Dwayne Washington to power the backfield.
