  • Lions' David Blough: Staying with Lions

    Blough agreed to re-sign with the Lions on Thursday, Jeremy Fowler of reports.

    Blough served mainly as Detroit's No. 3 quarterback in 2021 and played just four offensive snaps during his third season with the Lions. He should continue to serve behind starter Jared Goff and primary backup Tim Boyle heading into the 2022 campaign

  • Lions' David Blough: Remains No. 3 QB

    Blough (coach's decision) is inactive for Thursday's game against the Bears.

    While dressing as the No. 2 quarterback behind starter Tim Boyle in last week's 13-10 loss to the Browns, Blough didn't see the field, even though Boyle finished with just 15 completions for 77 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions on 23 attempts (3.3 YPA). Despite leading a listless offense in his first NFL start, Boyle looks like he'll hang on to the No. 2 job for now with top quarterback Jared Goff (oblique) rejoining the lineup Thanksgiving Day after a one-game absence.

  • Lions' David Blough: Enters game in garbage time

    Blough rushed once for six yards during Sunday's 44-6 loss to the Eagles.

    Blough entered the game on the final drive after Jared Goff had fallen into a 44-point hole. With Detroit at 0-8 and Tim Boyle (thumb) still on injured reserve, it will be interesting to see if Blough gets a chance to take over the offense coming out of the Lions' Week 9 bye.

  • Lions' David Blough: Backup role confirmed

    Blough will enter the season as the No. 2 quarterback after it was determined that Tim Boyle (thumb) will undergo surgery for a broken right thumb, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

    While it's not clear if Boyle will miss the entire season, Blough is set to serve as the backup for as long as the free-agent acquisition is sidelined. When forced into action for five games with Detroit in 2019, Blough managed 5.7 yards per pass attempt with a 54 percent completion rate.

  • Lions' David Blough: Slated for backup duties

    Blough likely will take over as Jared Goff's primary backup if Tim Boyle (thumb) is forced to miss significant time, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Boyle, who started Friday's preseason finale against Indianapolis, reportedly hit his thumb on the helmet of a defensive player on the opening drive of the game. Blough took over and completed 13 of 21 passes for 117 yards with one interception and 14 rushing yards on four carries. While it's not yet clear how long Boyle may be sidelined, Blough split No. 2 duties with him all summer and will be set to handle backup duties in the interim.

  • Lions' David Blough: Starting Friday night?

    Blough appears in line for the start in Friday's preseason game against the Colts, Chris Burke of The Athletic reports.

    Stephen Holder of The Athletic reports that Lions coach Dan Campbell told Colts coach Frank Reich he does not intend to play starters. With Jared Goff and others expected to sit, Blough and Tim Boyle will continue their competition for the No. 2 quarterback job. Boyle is listed second on the the team's depth chart, but the starting assignment Friday night might be a hint Blough has pushed ahead.

  • Lions' David Blough: Making case for backup job

    Blough is making a case for the backup quarterback job behind Jared Goff, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.

    Tim Boyle had been the presumed backup after getting a one-year, $2.5 million deal in free agency, but Blough has given the coaching staff something to think about after seeming to perform significantly better than Boyle during the preseason. While Blough was playing against lesser competition than Boyle most of the time, it nonetheless was impressive that Blough inherited Boyle's 23-point halftime deficit Saturday and ultimately led three touchdown drives to bring Detroit within seven points from winning. Even if he hasn't passed Boyle on the depth chart, Blough could be convincing the Lions to carry three quarterbacks on the regular-season roster.
