  • Head coach Jim Caldwell said Hyder suffered a "significant" Achilles injury. This is an unfortunate development for the Lions, as Hyder led the team with eight sacks in 2016 and was expected to be a strong bookend to Ziggy Ansah (undisclosed) this season. Further testing officially will determine the severity of Hyder's injury.

  • Hyder left Sunday's preseason opener against the Colts with a leg injury, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. Hyder appeared to be grabbing the back of his left leg after he went down Sunday and ultimately was carted off the field. His loss for any time in the regular season would be a significant blow to the Lions' pass rush.

  • Lions' Kerry Hyder: Two sacks against Vikings
    By RotoWire Staff

    Hyder recorded a pair of sacks and three tackles Sunday against the Vikings. After going four games without a sack, Hyder broke out in a big way by getting to Sam Bradford twice. This was his second multi-sack effort of 2016, and he now has seven sacks on the year. As an interior lineman, he's a fantastic IDP option in leagues that require a defensive tackle to start.

  • Hyder logged three tackles, including two sacks, in the Lions' 39-35 victory over the Browns on Sunday. Following a three-sack performance in the team's preseason finale, Hyder clearly carried his momentum into the regular season. He isn't an overly-powerful player, nor quick, but has demonstrated a high motor and drew praise for his relentless effort from the Lions' coaching staff in the preseason. If he can work himself further into the rotation along Detroit's defensive line, and simply be given the opportunity to tally high tackle numbers, Hyder could develop into a legitimate IDP option over the course of the 2016 campaign.
