Abdul-Quddus notched eight solo tackles in Sunday's win over the Packers. Abdul-Quddus has been filling in at the safety position after the injury to James Ihedigbo, and he was all over the field on Sunday. Abdul-Quddus led the team in tackles which helped the Lions pull of the upset in Green Bay. He can provide solid IDP value as long as Ihedigbo is still sidelined.
Abdul-Quddus will enter the starting lineup Sunday against the Bears, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports. With strong safety James Ihedigbo (quadriceps) unavailable, Abdul-Quddus will make his first start of the season. Ihedigbo's injury doesn't seem to be viewed as a long-term concern, making it unlikely that Abdul-Quddus will merit IDP attention during what figures to be a short stay in a starting role.
The Lions have re-signed safety Isa Abdul-Quddus, the team announced. Abdul-Quddus played in all 16 games in 2014, totaling 32 tackles with two passes defended. He spent the previous three years with the Saints, where he recorded two interceptions.
The Lions have signed safety Isa Abdul-Quddus, formerly with the Saints, to a one-year deal worth just under $700,000. The former Fordham student has 74 total tackles, nine passes defensed and a pair of interceptions to go with three forced fumbles over three years.
The Lions claimed safety Isa Abdul-Quddus off waivers from the Saints, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune. He played mainly on special teams last season, making 13 tackles.
