  • Lions' Jason Cabinda: Lands contract extension

    Cabinda signed a two-year contract extension with the Lions on Thursday.

    Cabinda missed the final two games of the regular season in 2021 due to a knee injury, but it's unlikely that the issue will impact his offseason availability. He rushed three times for 23 yards while securing four of seven targets for 16 yards and a touchdown across 14 appearances last year and should continue to serve as Detroit's primary fullback in 2022.

  • Lions' Jason Cabinda: Logs first career TD in 2021

    Cabinda (knee) appeared in 14 games in 2021 and rushed three times for 23 yards while catching four of seven targets for 16 yards and one touchdown.

    Cabinda was inactive for Week 18 after failing to practice all week due to a knee injury. It was nonetheless a successful season for the converted linebacker in his second full season at fullback, though, especially since Cabinda also handled some responsibilities at tight end thanks to the Lions' turmoil at that position. He'll now head into the offseason as a restricted free agent who will need to recover from a knee injury that wasn't serious enough for Detroit to immediately rule him out for the regular-season finale.

  • Lions' Jason Cabinda: Out for Week 17

    Cabinda (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

    Cabinda will miss Sunday's matchup with Seattle after suffering the knee injury last week against the Falcons. The Lions will be without a fullback for Week 17.

  • Lions' Jason Cabinda: Suffers knee injury Sunday

    Cabinda (knee) is questionable to return to Sunday's contest against the Falcons, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Cabinda suffered the injury after catching a two-yard pass from Tim Boyle. If he's unable to return, the Lions won't have a healthy fullback on their active roster, so they may opt to run more two-man sets with Brock Wright and Shane Zylstra.

  • Lions' Jason Cabinda: Ruled out Sunday

    Cabinda (knee) won't return to Sunday's game against the Falcons, Eric Woodyard of reports.

    Cabinda hurt his knee after catching a pass in the first quarter, and he won't be able to return to the contest. He finishes Sunday with two catches on two targets for six yards.

  • Lions' Jason Cabinda: Totals 21 rushing yards

    Cabinda rushed twice for 21 yards but failed to secure his only target during Sunday's 13-10 loss to the Browns.

    The fullback has now gotten a touch in two consecutive games, but this rushing production could easily end up as his season high.

  • Lions' Jason Cabinda: Full practice Wednesday

    Cabinda (hip) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice.

    After missing the Lions' Week 7 matchup against the Rams, the fullback appears to be on track to play Sunday against the Eagles. In six games this season, he has yet to log a rush and has caught one ball for four yards, logging most of his snaps on special teams.

  • Lions' Jason Cabinda: Sidelined by hip issue

    Cabinda (hip) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Rams.

    Cabinda was able to log two limited practices leading up to the Week 7 matchup, but that wasn't enough for him to be ready. He has served primarily in a special teams role, recording only one reception across six games.

  • Lions' Jason Cabinda: Minimal offensive role

    Cabinda was targeted once but did not catch a pass during Sunday's 41-33 loss to San Francisco.

    After seeing a handful of offensive snaps per game last year, the starting fullback was used in a similarly minimal way with Detroit's new coaching staff in Week 1. If that usage holds, Cabinda's main contributions this year will likely come on special teams, where he logged over half of the available snaps Sunday.

  • Lions' Jason Cabinda: Lone fullback on roster

    Cabinda is the lone fullback on the Lions roster after Nick Bawden (undisclosed) was let go, Kyle Meinke of reports.

    Bawden's injury troubles opened the door for Cabinda to operate as Detroit's top fullback last year. With Bawden now out of the picture completely, Cabinda seems to have little competition for Detroit's starting fullback role entering the 2021 campaign.

  • Lions' Jason Cabinda: Signs tender

    Cabinda signed his exclusive rights tender Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    The 25-year-old fullback played all 16 games for the Lions last season. He averaged fewer than 10 offensive snaps per game, but he finished third on the team with seven special-teams tackles. Cabinda will likely handle a similar role in 2021.

  • Lions' Jason Cabinda: Three touches in 2020

    Cabinda carried once for no yards and caught two of three targets for eight yards over 16 games in 2020.

    After filling in for Nick Bawden (undisclosed) down the stretch of the 2019 campaign, Cabinda again assumed the Lions' fullback duties in 2020 once Bawden suffered another season-ending injury in training camp last summer. Cabinda not only made it through 16 games but he seemed to fare well in that role despite not getting many touches. Given his status as an exclusive-rights free agent, Detroit can easily retain the Penn State product for another year on the cheap, if it wants.
