01/31/17QBMatthew StaffordFingerQUESTIONABLEStafford (finger) skipped the 2017 Pro Bowl in order to rest his injured middle finger, MLive.com reports.

Stafford dislocated his right middle finger (on his throwing hand) in Week 14 against the Bears. While he finished out the regular season and also suited up for the Lions' lone playoff game in Seattle, Stafford was unable to attend the Pro Bowl because he opted for rest over surgery as means to recover. However, it isn't clear how much rest his finger may require, nor if his treatment plan will delay the start of his offseason preparation.

01/25/17LBJon BosticFootQUESTIONABLEBostic (foot) was seen working with trainers on the sidelines at Wednesday's practice, MLive.com reports.

Bostic was placed on injured reserve after going down with a fractured left foot in training camp. However, his increased activity Wednesday suggests Detroit may have made a decision regarding which one player they want to activate from IR. Such a notion would mean RB Ameer Abdullah (foot) is completely done for the season.

01/25/17LBArmonty BryantUndisclosedQUESTIONABLEBryant (undisclosed) re-signed with the Lions on Tuesday, the Lions' official site reports.

Originally drafted by the Browns in the seventh round, Bryant played 36 games with the team before joining the Lions via waivers during the 2016 season. He recorded five tackles, three sacks, and one forced fumble across five games with the club. He was ultimately placed on the IR due to an undisclosed injury. He figures to compete for a more solidified role providing depth at defensive end once training camp commences.

01/25/17DLStefan CharlesKneeQUESTIONABLECharles (knee) is expected to ink a contract with the Jaguars, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.

Charles figures to provide depth along the defensive line for the Jaguars, but has never contributed enough to be worthy of IDP fantasy consideration.

01/25/17RBTheo RiddickWristQUESTIONABLERiddick had surgery on both wrists late last season, the Detroit Free Press reports.

Riddick missed the final four games of the season with a wrist injury, but it was never revealed if he had surgery. While it turns out he actually needed procedures on both wrists, Riddick is still expected to be a full participant when organized team activities begin later this spring. Backfield mate Ameer Abdullah (foot) has already been fully cleared to return, but even with him and Riddick both expected to be healthy, the Lions are rumored to have interest in drafting a running back.

Since going undrafted out of Lehigh in 2013, Spadola had bounced around the league before joining the Lions' practice squad in 2015. He then signed a futures contract with the team at the end of the season, but suffered a torn pectoral muscle over the summer and was placed on injured reserve shortly thereafter. His future with the team beyond the 2016 campaign is uncertain.
