  • Rudock is expected to remain Matthew Stafford's (hand) backup Sunday against the Buccaneers with the latter expected to make his 108th consecutive start, a source informed Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Rudock saw more reps with the first-team offense than usual this week while Stafford was rendered a limited participant for all three of Detroit's practices, but barring a setback in the hours leading up to Sunday's 1 p.m. EST kickoff, Stafford looks set to direct the offense as the 6-6 Lions fight to stay in the thick of the NFC playoff race. A 2016 sixth-round pick out of Michigan, Rudock saw his most extensive NFL action to date in relief of a hurting Stafford in the Week 13 loss to the Ravens, completing three of five passes for 24 yards and an interception.

  • Lions' Jake Rudock: Drawing trade interest
    By RotoWire Staff

    Rudock is drawing trade interest from other teams, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. This news comes on the heels of Rudock's impressive performance against the Patriots during last Friday's exhibition, in which the second-year QB completed 10 of 13 passes for 113 yards and one touchdown to earn a 128.0 QBR, which bested all three of the quarterbacks that entered the game before he did -- Tom Brady, Matthew Stafford and Jimmy Garappolo. Granted, Rudock was playing against second-string defenders, but there's no doubting that he has the look of an up-and-coming talent. However, the Lions would probably need a really sweet offer to give Rudock up, as they'd be in trouble if something happened to Stafford and current third-stringer Brad Kaaya was forced to take over.

  • Lions' Jake Rudock: Throws for 84 yards Saturday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Rudock completed eight of 10 passes for 84 yards and one interception in Saturday's preseason victory over the Jets. He added 11 yards rushing on one attempt. Though his numbers weren't all that impressive Saturday, Rudock showed touch on his passes and appears to be settling in as the clear backup to Matthew Stafford ahead of the regular season. Unless sixth-round rookie Brad Kaaya does something to make the team reconsider, which is highly unlikely, that shouldn't change.

  • Lions' Jake Rudock: Clearly established as No. 2 QB
    By RotoWire Staff

    Rudock appears to have clearly established himself as the No. 2 quarterback heading into training camp, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. The drafting of former University of Miami quarterback Brad Kaaya in this year's draft initially seemed to put Rudock's hold on the No. 2 job in question, but it doesn't sound as if Kaaya has been able to pick up the playbook quick enough to serve as legitimate competition. Meanwhile, Rudock has a year of experience in OC Jim Bob Cooter's offense and has shown marked improvement from 2016 during offseason practices. Things could always change prior to Week 1, but Rudock seems unlikely to lose his role unless Kaaya puts on a show during the preseason.

  • Lions' Jake Rudock: Has inside track to backup job
    By RotoWire Staff

    Head coach Jim Caldwell said the Lions will add another quarterback, but the backup job likely will still be Rudock's to lose, Tim Twentyman of the team's official website reports. A 2016 sixth-round selection, Rudock spent his rookie season on the practice squad, stuck behind Matthew Stafford and Dan Orlovsky. The Lions liked what they saw from Rudock during the preseason and in practice, which may explain the team's lack of interest in re-signing Orlovsky. The Lions don't figure to hand Rudock the No. 2 job without any push, but they may settle for a late-round draft pick or journeyman veteran to serve as his competition.
