  • Lions' Kalif Raymond: Sticking with Detroit

    Raymond is re-signing with the Lions, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

    Raymond is a 27-year-old journeyman who made 14 starts for Detroit last season and finished with career highs across the board (48-576-4 on 71 targets). He'll be back with the Lions, but there's significant danger of slipping down the depth chart, especially after the team reached an agreement earlier Tuesday with former Jags wideout D.J. Chark. Prior to that, the Lions signed Josh Reynolds to a two-year extension, giving them another experienced option behind Chark and second-year receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown.

  • Lions' Kalif Raymond: Scores on trick play

    Raymond caught four passes for 101 yards and one touchdown on five targets against Green Bay on Sunday.

    Raymond's box score was mostly propelled by a 75-yard touchdown on a trick play from wideout Tom Kennedy, with the former's speed a major reason why the play succeeded. While he might see less playing time in 2022 even if he re-signs with the Lions, Raymond deserves credit for catching 48 receptions for 576 yards and four touchdowns on 71 targets (67.6 percent catch rate, 8.1 yards per target) despite dealing with shaky quarterback play. Even if he's more of a backup than a starter in 2022, Raymond arguably earned some benefit of the doubt if he ends up stepping into a starting role at some point.

  • Lions' Kalif Raymond: Returns from COVID list

    Raymond (illness) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.

    Raymond missed Sunday's loss to the Seahawks after being placed on the COVID-19 list last week, but he's now back on the active roster ahead of the season finale. The 27-year-old has 44 receptions for 475 yards and three touchdowns this season, and he should work as Detroit's No. 3 wide receiver this weekend against the Packers behind Amon-Ra St. Brown and Josh Reynolds.

  • Lions' Kalif Raymond: Officially out Week 17

    Raymond (illness) won't be available for Sunday's game in Seattle after the Lions didn't activate him from the reserve/COVID-19 list prior to Saturday's deadline for week 17 roster moves, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Raymond was placed on the list Thursday after testing positive for the virus, so he never seemed likely to test out of the NFL's COVID-19 protocol prior to Sunday's contest. With Josh Reynolds (illness) also sidelined Week 17 after testing positive for the virus Monday, the Lions won't have much in the way of established depth behind No. 1 wideout Amon-Ra St. Brown. The Lions' remaining four available receivers -- KhaDarel Hodge, Trinity Benson, Tom Kennedy and Javon McKinley -- have combined for 20 catches for 191 yards during their NFL careers.

  • Lions' Kalif Raymond: Second Detroit WR on COVID-19 list

    The Lions placed Raymond on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday.

    Raymond becomes the second Detroit receiver to go on the list this week, joining Josh Reynolds. The 27-year-old theoretically has a chance to test out of the protocol before Sunday's game against the Seahawks if he's vaccinated and asymptomatic of the virus, but he'll most likely miss his first game of the season, given the timing of his placement on the list. If both Raymond and Reynolds are out this weekend, Detroit would have to rely on Tom Kennedy, KhaDarel Hodge and Trinity Benson to mix in for reps behind No. 1 wideout Amon-Ra St. Brown.

  • Lions' Kalif Raymond: Will play Sunday

    Raymond (shoulder) will play Sunday against the Falcons.

    Raymond was able to practice in a limited capacity all week, so his ability to suit up isn't unexpected. Raymond has had an inconsistent season with spiked weeks occasionally, but mostly subpar results. With Jared Goff on the COVID list and Tim Boyle drawing the start, Raymond's chances of a better-than-usual outings are reduced. The last time Boyle started in Week 11 against the Browns, Raymond played 70 percent of the snaps on offense and tallied one target with no receptions.

  • Lions' Kalif Raymond: Another forgettable stat line

    Raymond caught three of five targets for 12 yards while rushing once for five yards during Sunday's 20-16 loss to Atlanta.

    Playing through a shoulder injury, Raymond remained the third wheel behind Amon-Ra St. Brown (11 targets) and Josh Reynolds (seven) in the passing game. Only St. Brown managed any meaningful production with backup QB Tim Boyle, who struggled to complete passes down the field. Even if Jared Goff (COVID-19) manages to return in Week 17 against Seattle, Raymond will remain an inadvisable fantasy option.

  • Lions' Kalif Raymond: Receives questionable tag

    Detroit lists Raymond (shoulder) as questionable for Sunday's game in Atlanta.

    Raymond was able to practice in a limited capacity all week, which seemingly bodes well for his chances of getting the green light to play Sunday, despite his designation. Since raising eyebrows with a six-catch, 115-yard outing Week 7 against the Rams, Raymond has failed to come anywhere close to reaching those marks in any of his subsequent seven outings, combining to produce a 15-129-1 receiving line over 22 targets. With backup quarterback Tim Boyle stepping in at quarterback this week with regular starter Jared Goff (illness) not expected to be activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list prior to Sunday, Raymond is unlikely to reverse his trend of underwhelming stat lines.

  • Lions' Kalif Raymond: Reps capped Thursday

    Raymond (shoulder) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

    For the second day in a row, Raymond and fellow wideout Josh Reynolds (thigh) had their reps capped in practice. So long as the two receivers are able to practice again in some fashion Friday, Raymond and Reynolds should be on track to play Sunday in Atlanta, though one or both could carry a questionable tag into the contest. Raymond has played 60-plus percent of the Lions' offensive snaps in all but one of his 14 appearances this season, putting together a 41-463-3 receiving line on 61 targets.
