  • Roberts (shoulder) was a non-participant during Wednesday's walk-through practice, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. Roberts was forced to exit Detroit's loss to the Bears in Week 10 due to a shoulder injury, and remained sidelined in Wednesday's walk-through due to the issue. With Luke Willson (shoulder) also nursing an injury, Levine Toilolo could enter Sunday's game against the Panthers as the Lions' only healthy tight end.

  • Roberts is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Bears due to a shoulder injury, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. Roberts caught one pass for nine yards before exiting Sunday's divisional matchup against the Bears with a shoulder injury. If Roberts is unable to return, Levine Toilolo will serve as Detroit's only healthy tight end.

  • Roberts is in line for an elevated role with starting tight end Luke Willson (shoulder) inactive Sunday at Chicago, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports. It's unclear whether Roberts or Levine Toilolo will get the start in Willson's stead. With just 78 catches in 87 career games, Toilolo is unlikely to do much as a pass catcher Sunday. Meanwhile, Roberts has made his presence felt in five appearances this season, reeling in five of nine passes for 75 yards and three touchdowns. The second-year tight end will attempt to become the sixth different tight to reach the end zone against the Bears defense this season.

  • Lions' Michael Roberts: Shut out by Seahawks
    By RotoWire Staff

    Roberts was targeted once but did not record a catch during Sunday's 28-14 loss to Seattle. Roberts continued to see attention near the goal line, but quarterback Matthew Stafford tried to force the ball into a tight window in the end zone, and the lone pass sent Roberts' way ultimately fell incomplete. Having only topped one target in his four appearances this season, Roberts is nothing more than a low-floor, touchdown-dependent fantasy option entering a Week 9 matchup against Minnesota.

  • Lions' Michael Roberts: Scores twice in win
    By RotoWire Staff

    Roberts caught all three of his targets for 48 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 32-21 win over Miami. Roberts placed the Lions up by two scores in the third quarter when he broke outside for a 4-yard touchdown, his second of the game. The Lions haven't enjoyed much production from the tight-end room this season, with Luke Willson's six receptions leading the group, so Roberts warrants watching. The second-year pass catcher has been hobbled by a knee injury but has scored on three of his four targets this season. It's too early to get too excited, but Roberts did have a knack for finding the end zone in college, scoring 16 times during his senior season at Toledo. Seattle's revamped Legion of Boom awaits next Sunday.
