  • Lions' Jason Cabinda: Placed on reserve/PUP list

    The Lions placed Cabinda (ankle) on the reserve/PUP list Tuesday. Cabinda has been tending to an ankle injury throughout the duration of training camp and is now required to sit out for at least the team's first four games. The 240-pounder remains the only rostered fullback for Detroit, so it'll be worth monitoring whether the team brings in another lead blocker, which could offer a clue into the severity of Cabinda's ankle issue.

  • Lions' Jason Cabinda: Iffy for Week 1

    Cabinda (ankle) may not be ready for the start of the regular season, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. Cabinda has not practiced this summer due to an ankle injury. He will be required to miss the first four games of the regular season if he remains on the PUP list when Week 1 rolls around.

  • Lions' Jason Cabinda: Hits PUP list

    Cabinda (undisclosed) was added to the Lions' active/physically unable to perform list Wednesday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. Cabinda is eligible to return and play at any point this preseason, though it's unclear how long his stay on the PUP list may last. The fullback collected seven total touches for 39 yards and one score in 2021, and he figures to continue contributing both on offense and special teams this coming season.

  • Lions' Jason Cabinda: Out 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: 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.

  • Lions' Jason Cabinda: Limited in practice Wednesday

    Cabinda (ankle) was limited during Wednesday's practice, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. Cabinda played 14 offensive snaps and another 20 on special teams in Week 1, but he's being held back in practice. It doesn't seem too serious since he can still operate in some capacity, but the Lions don't have another fullback on the active or practice roster if Cabinda can't play against the Packers on Sunday.

  • Lions' Jason Cabinda: Activated from practice squad

    The Lions signed Cabinda to the 53-man roster from their practice squad Tuesday. The 23-year-old spent his first and only NFL season in 2018 with the Raiders, logging 21 tackles (14 solo) in 10 games. It's unclear what sort of role Cabinda will have in the defense for Week 14, but barring injuries, it likely won't be much more than a reserve role.
