Lions' Ameer Abdullah: May not quite be 100 percent healthy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lions head coach Jim Caldwell was evasive when asked if Abdullah (shoulder) is 100 percent healthy, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

Caldwell's lack of response doesn't necessarily mean anything, as Abdullah is still expected to be ready for the start of training camp Friday. The second-year pro is a clear favorite to earn the lead-back role, despite missing the Lions' entire offseason program after having surgery in January to repair a torn labrum. Abdullah finished his rookie year on a high note, even successfully playing through the aforementioned injury in his final two games.

Lions' Anquan Boldin: Inks contract with Lions
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

The Lions and Boldin agreed to a contract Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

At this stage of his career, the 35-year-old Boldin won't completely make up for the retirement of Calvin Johnson. In reality, the combined efforts of Boldin and fellow offseason pickup Marvin Jones will help plug the dam, with the 13-year veteran the likely candidate to become a quick favorite of Matthew Stafford. Despite posting the second-lowest YPC (11.4) of his career last season, Boldin was working with uninspiring signal callers -- Blaine Gabbert and Colin Kaepernick -- so the upgrade to Stafford should boost Boldin's prospects.

Lions' Ameer Abdullah: Ready for training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abdullah (shoulder) will be ready for the start of training camp, which kicks off Friday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

The Lions will place a trio of players on the preseason PUP list -- WR Corey Fuller (foot), TE Brandon Pettigrew (knee), and OT Corey Robinson (undisclosed) -- but Abdullah has avoided such an honor. Alas, Abdullah's recovery from offseason surgery to repair a torn labrum has followed the intended path, which should afford him every opportunity to solidify himself as the clear-cut No. 1 back. His rookie campaign was a roller-coaster ride, to say the least, yet he still finished with respectable output, namely 4.2 yards per carry and 25 receptions on 38 targets in 16 games.

Lions' Corey Fuller: Placed on PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fuller has been placed on the physically unable to perform list for the start of the Lions' training camp.

Fuller had offseason foot surgery in June and a timetable has not yet been released for his return. That being said it's now clear he won't be able to practice at the start of training camp. When healthy, he's a likely candidate for the Lions' No. 3 wide receiver slot behind Golden Tate and Marvin Jones. Whether or not he returns to practice during training camp remains to be seen. Look for Andre Roberts and Jeremy Kerley to see some extra reps as long as Fuller is sidelined.

Lions' Brandon Pettigrew: Placed on PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pettigrew has been placed on the physically unable to perform list prior to the start of Detroit's training camp.

Pettigrew has been recovering from a ACL tear he suffered in December of last season. Though he's made steady progress, he isn't ready to practice quite yet, but he will participate with the team in all meetings during the preseason and training camp. He'll be looking to return as soon as possible to compete with Eric Ebron and Tim Wright, who'll share first team reps while Pettigrew is sidelined.
