Lions interim head coach Darrell Bevell ruled Golladay (hip) out for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports. The announcement comes as no surprise, given that the Lions are eliminated from playoff contention along with the fact that Golladay hasn't practiced in any capacity since Week 12. Golladay thus concludes the 2020 season with 20 receptions on 32 targets for 338 yards and two touchdowns across his eight appearances, but the disappointing, injury-plagued campaign shouldn't prevent him from earning a hefty pay raise this offseason. Though Detroit may be reluctant to give the wideout the long-term contract extension he's seeking, he would be a strong candidate to receive the Lions' franchise tag, which would net him a one-year deal worth no less than the average of the top five highest-salaried players at his position.
Golladay (hip) won't participate in Thursday's practice, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports. Golladay hasn't played since Week 8 and hasn't practiced in any capacity since Week 12, making it a longshot for him to gain clearance for Sunday's season finale versus the Vikings. Unless Golladay makes a surprise appearance on the practice field Friday, he'll likely be ruled out for the game when the Lions release their final Week 17 injury report.
Golladay (hip) won't practice Wednesday, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports. Though Golladay hasn't played since Week 8, the Lions have thus far elected not to place the wideout on injured reserve. Golladay's continued absence from practice, however, doesn't bode well for his chances of returning to game action in Sunday's season finale versus the Vikings.
Golladay (hip) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Buccaneers, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. After yet another week with no practice reps, the Lions did the expected and will make Golladay inactive this weekend, marking his eighth straight contest on the sideline. He'll have one more chance to get back on the field this season on Sunday, Jan. 3 against the Vikings.
Golladay (hip) was held out of practice Wednesday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. Tuesday's practice report was an estimate, so Golladay's lack of activity Wednesday is more indicative of his current level of health. In any case, he doesn't seem to have made any recognizable progress in his recovery from the hip injury that has kept him off the practice field since Week 12. The Lions haven't outright indicated that Golladay will be shut down for the final two contests, but with no playoff berth on the line, it could be a formality at this point.
