Lions' Caldwell expects Theo Riddick to have large role in 2015
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Lions coach Jim Caldwell expects running back Theo Riddick to help boost a rushing attack that ranked 28th in 2014 and cut Reggie Bush after the season, MLive.com reports.

"We try and give (the ball) to the guys who are going to do something with it, and I think he's going to be one of those guys who's going to force us to give him the ball more," Caldwell said last week at the NFL owners meetings. "I think you're really going to see him come along."

Riddick rushed for 51 yards on 20 carries in 2014 and added 316 yards and four touchdowns on 34 catches.

"I can't tell you he's going to carry the ball 50 more times, or I can't tell you he's going to get the ball thrown to him 30 more times, until we have a chance to work through this gauntlet. Know what I mean?" Caldwell said. "When we get to the end of the gauntlet, then maybe I can give you a little more of a view. But I'm never going to tell you, 'Hey, we expect this guy to do this or that.' What role he plays, how much he's going to get it, kind of depends on how well we move the ball and how many opportunities we get, what kind of game it is, are we playing great defense, that kind of thing.

"But I will say that he's going to improve. He has all the qualities. Here's the thing -- if you're smart, if you're tough, if you're disciplined, if you have a great work ethic, there's improvement ahead. And he has all those things. So I think he's going to improve, and I think he's going to force us to get him the ball a little bit more in some situations."

Lions RB Joique Bell (Achilles) might miss NFC North showdown
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Lions might not have running back Joique Bell for Sunday's key game at Green Bay, reports MLive.com. Bell has been limited in practice this week with an Achilles injury, and coach Jim Caldwell said only, "We'll see," when asked about Bell's status.

Bell leads Detroit with 800 rushing yards and eight total touchdowns. He's averaged at least 4.0 yards per carry in four straight games, scoring five times in that span. If he can't play, Reggie Bush would start and Theo Riddick and George Winn would get increased snaps, the report said.

Detroit is a 7.5-point underdog in the game that will decide the division title.
