    11/04/15RBTrey WattsSuspensionSUSPENDWatts was signed by the Rams on Friday, ESPN's Nick Wagoner reports.

    Watts was promoted from the practice squad, suggesting that Tre Mason (ankle) is unlikely to play. Even if he's active, Watts won't necessarily get any touches.

    06/07/16RBAmeer AbdullahShoulder Abdullah (shoulder) will have every opportunity to earn most of the workload for the Lions' rushing attack, according to Tim Twentyman of the team's official site.

    Abdullah missed the Lions' offseason program while recovering from January surgery to repair a torn labrum, but there doesn't seem to be any concern within the organization about his availability for training camp. Though not of much use to fantasy owners, Abdullah's rookie campaign wasn't a lost cause from his perspective, as he led the team in carries (143), rushing yards (597) and YPC (4.2), showing notable improvement along with the rest of Detroit's offense after Jim Bob Cooter replaced Joe Lombardi as the offensive coordinator mid-season. Abdullah averaged 10.7 carries for 51 yards (4.8 YPC) over the final six weeks, albeit with just one touchdown and 63 receiving yards (11 catches) while facing a soft part of the schedule. The 2015 second-round selection also did a better job taking care of the ball as the season progressed, with only one of his five fumbles occurring after Week 6, though it was still somewhat alarming to see his fumbling issues from college (23 on 980 touches) re-emerge. Assuming he returns to full health and mostly holds onto the ball, Abdullah doesn't have anything standing between him and the lead-back role, as Detroit's other running backs are either plodders (Stevan Ridley, Zach Zenner), pass-catching specialists (Theo Riddick) or special-teamers (George Winn). While easily the most explosive runner of the bunch, Abdullah is unlikely to surpass Riddick as the primary passing-down back -- a crucial role on a Detroit team that attempted 600+ passes each of the last six years. Further adding to Abdullah's workload concerns, Zenner and/or Ridley may take on most of the goal-line and short-yardage carries, with one of the two possibly even pushing for something akin to Joique Bell's role from last season. Even so, Abdullah offers an intriguing ceiling for prospective fantasy owners, entering his second NFL season with a clear path to lead-back status, assuming the shoulder checks out.

    06/01/16TETimothy WrightKnee Wright sustained a torn ACL during the Lions' offseason program, which spurred the team to release him Thursday, The Detroit News reports.

    After clearing waivers Tuesday, the Lions placed the tight end on injured reserve, thus retaining his rights while he spends the next year or so in rehabilitation. In three professional seasons with a trio of organizations, the hybrid wideout/tight end has totaled 89 catches (on 125 targets) for 907 yards and 13 touchdowns in 41 games.

    04/27/16LBDeAndre LevyHipPROBABLELevy (hip) "shows no signs of the hip injury that limited him", Mike O'Hara of the Lion's official site reports.

    Levy was seen running stride-for-stride with TE Eric Ebron, and evidently appears to be be nearing his 2014 form. That season, Levy racked up 117 solo tackles - 16 more than anyone else - and finished second in the league in total tackles (only behind Luke Kuechly). Should Levy make a full recovery and maneuver through the rest of the offseason without any setbacks, he will undoubtedly re-bolster a Lions defense that finished 19th in the league against the run in 2015.

    02/15/16TEBrandon PettigrewKnee Pettigrew (knee) continues to recover from a torn ACL suffered last December, but he's not expected to be ready for the start of training camp, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Pettigrew's timetable a month ago projected the tight end to be ready for a return by late-July, but the team is expected to take it slow as he endures a lengthy recovery process. Eric Ebron will have additional time to solidify his place as the Lions' main pass-catching option at tight end.
