  • Lions' Joe Dahl: Back in lineup for Week 10

    Dahl (back) is active heading into Sunday's matchup against Washington. Dahl dealt with a groin injury throughout the latter half of September and the early part of October, which landed him on injured reserve, but he was able to return to action Weeks 6, 7 and 8. A back injury kept the 27-year-old guard out last week against the Vikings as well, but he's shown enough to team trainers to get the nod for a Sunday afternoon home game against Washington. He'll start in place of the injured Halapoulivaati Vaitai (foot) at right guard.

  • Lions' Joe Dahl: Seeing time at fullback

    Dahl has operated as the Lions' primary fullback for most of the last three games with Nick Bellore (ankle) sidelined, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. Dahl has operated as an offensive lineman for the near entirety of his football career at every level of play, but he's getting an opportunity to try his hand at fullback for a Detroit team that has been without both Bellore and Nick Bawden (knee). It's unlikely the 305-pound vet gets many opportunities to rush the ball, but he could help clear lanes for Zach Zenner and LeGarrette Blount over the final two games of the season -- just like he did on Zenner's one-yard touchdown plunge during Sunday's loss to Buffalo.

When healthy, Dahl will compete for a depth role along the Detroit offensive line.
