The Lions plan to give Reynolds more reps on special teams in Friday's preseason finale as they assess whether to keep him on the final roster, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

After reportedly having to introduce himself to teammates in the huddle during Detroit's preseason opener before rushing for 49 yards and a score, Reynolds again led the Lions in rushing while again finding the end zone in last weekend's preseason tilt against Pittsburgh. It's not clear if the 25-year-old could be threatening Jermar Jefferson for the No. 3 job at running back, but Reynolds may have a leg up on Dedrick Mills and Godwin Igwebuike for a possible No. 4 role, especially if he can contribute on special teams.
