  • Justin Forsett: Released by Lions
    By RotoWire Staff

    Forsett was released by the Lions on Saturday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. Forsett joined the Lions when the team was dealing with injuries to both Theo Riddick and Dwayne Washington in October. However, he was a healthy scratch in each of the past four games because he doesn't offer much, if any, value on special teams. There's a chance he could wind up on a contending roster in need of running back help before season's end, though.

  • Forsett (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 11 tilt against the Jaguars, the team's official site reports. The veteran running back will take a seat with Theo Riddick (ankle) active, making it a third straight game that he won't be in uniform.

  • Lions' Justin Forsett: Listed as inactive Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Forsett is inactive for Sunday's game at Minnesota, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. With Theo Riddick (ankle) back in the lineup last Sunday, Forsett avoided the inactive list, unlike rookie Dwayne Washington, but the veteran running back didn't earn even one snap. In Week 9, Forsett and Washington have been swapped, which could be indicative of their roles moving forward.

  • Lions' Justin Forsett: Doesn't see the field
    By RotoWire Staff

    Forsett did not log a single snap during Sunday's 20-13 loss to the Texans. Theo Riddick accounted for the near entirety of snaps at running back Sunday with Zach Zenner serving in a complementary role. Meanwhile, Dwayne Washington, though considered healthy, was inactive by coach's decision. However, this appears to be more due to the fact that Washington had recently returned from injury rather than that Forsett had leapfrogged the rookie on the depth chart.

  • Lions' Justin Forsett: Leads Lions in rushing
    By RotoWire Staff

    Forsett carried eight times for 33 yards and secured both of his targets for 15 yards Sunday against the Redskins. Forsett didn't lead the Lions in rush attempts (Zach Zenner received nine), but was the most effective tailback on a per-touch basis, especially as a receiver. It remains to be seen if Theo Riddick (ankle) will be available for next week's matchup with the Texans, but Dwayne Washington (ankle) appears likely to suit up after returning to practice this past week. In such an event, both Forsett as well Zenner would likely yield the backfield to the rookie out of Washington.
