  • Lions' Cornelius Washington: Suiting up Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Washington (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. Washington was limited in practice throughout the week due to his injury, but it isn't expected to slow him down much in Sunday's tilt. Expect him to see his usual role as a backup along the defensive line.

  • Washington sustained a shoulder injury in Sunday's loss to the Ravens, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports. Washington was designated questionable to return but never appeared to retake the field. The Lions' depth at defensive end is being tested with Ezekiel Ansah injuring his ankle Sunday, as well.

  • Washington recorded four tackles (three solo) and two sacks in Sunday's win against the Browns. This kind of performance isn't typical of Washington, and most of it can be attributed to Ezekiel Ansah (back) sitting out Sunday. This is why he was able to log a season-high 48 defensive snaps, which led him to this uncharacteristic stat line. However, if Ansah remains out against the Bears in Week 11, Washington could once again be a cheap fantasy option with high upside.

  • Lions' Cornelius Washington: Free from injury report
    By RotoWire Staff

    Washington was absent from Wednesday's injury report. Washington appears locked into a starting role entering Week 1 with Kerry Hyder (Achilles) done for the year. If his health cooperates (Washington's missed 33 of 64 career games), the Georgia product seems poised for an increase in statistical production after setting a career-high 20 tackles and two sacks with the Bears last season.

  • Lions' Cornelius Washington: Injures leg Monday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Washington suffered a left leg injury during Monday's practice, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports. It isn't clear if this is the same issue that landed Washington on the Non-Football Injury list earlier in training camp, but this development nonetheless leaves the Lions woefully thin at defensive end with Ziggy Ansah (undisclosed), Armonty Bryant (undisclosed) and Jeremiah Valoaga (undisclosed) all residing on the Physically Unable to Perform list at present time. Unless something changes, look for Kerry Hyder and Brandon Copeland to work with the starters for the remainder of training camp.
