  • Lions' Austin Seibert: Done for '21 season

    Lions head coach Dan Campbell said Friday that Seibert (hip) won't return from injured reserve this season, Benjamin Raven of reports.

    Seibert is first eligible to return from IR this weekend against the Vikings after missing the requisite three games with a right hip injury, but since he's not even in condition to resume practicing at this stage, the Lions don't have confidence he'll be able to make it back before Week 18. While Seibert has been sidelined, the Lions have used three kickers in as many games. With Ryan Santoso and Aldrick Rosas having since been moved off the 53-man roster, the job looks like it belongs to Riley Patterson for the time being. The undrafted rookie out of Memphis connected on both of his extra-point attempts last week in his NFL debut in the Lions' 16-14 loss to the Bears.

  • Lions' Austin Seibert: Moved to IR

    Seibert (hip) was placed on IR on Saturday.

    The Lions promoted Ryan Santoso from the practice squad in a corresponding move. Santoso will fill in for Seibert against the Steelers on Sunday, and he'll likely continue to do so for the remainder of Seibert's absence, which will last a minimum of three weeks.

  • Lions' Austin Seibert: Ruled out against Pittsburgh

    Seibert (hip) won't play Sunday against the Steelers, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

    Seibert was unable to practice Friday and was subsequently ruled out. The Lions likely will promote Ryan Santoso from the practice squad Friday or Saturday to handle kicking duties this Sunday.

  • Lions' Austin Seibert: Limited again Thursday

    Seibert (hip) was a limited participant at practice Thursday.

    The kicker was limited for the second consecutive day at practice Thursday, placing some doubt on his availability for Sunday's matchup with the Steelers. Seibert's level of participation at Friday's practice should be a good indicator of his ability to suit up in Week 10.

  • Lions' Austin Seibert: Misses from 47 yards out

    Seibert missed his lone field-goal attempt during Sunday's 44-6 loss to the Eagles.

    After the Lions put up a solid effort in Week 8 against a solid Rams defense, Detroit took a huge step back against a seemingly poor Eagles defense. On his only opportunity of the day, Seibert missed wide left from 47 yards out. Attached to one of the least reliable offenses in the league, Seibert will remain an unadvisable fantasy option when Detroit returns from its Week 9 bye to take on Pittsburgh in Week 10.

  • Lions' Austin Seibert: Bounces back strong

    Seibert converted four-of-four field-goal attempts and his only PAT during Sunday's 28-19 loss to the Rams.

    In what was easily his most productive game of the year, Seibert nailed a handful of field goals from between 31 and 47 yards out as the Lions found much more success than expected against the Rams' defense. While his fantasy expectations will remain low as long as he's attached to an offense led by Jared Goff, Seibert at least flashed the upside he can have in a game if everything breaks right.

  • Lions' Austin Seibert: Scores three points in blowout

    Seibert converted his lone field-goal attempt during Sunday's 34-11 loss to Cincinnati.

    Seibert only got one chance at a field goal in this one, as the Lions were thoroughly blown out by the Bengals. While the offense managed to score a TD late, Detroit went for two instead of giving Seibert an extra-point try. There may be 31 better kicker options in fantasy come Week 7 when the Lions go on the road to take on the Rams.

  • Lions' Austin Seibert: Drills three field goals

    Seibert made all three of his field-goal attempts during Sunday's 19-17 loss to Minnesota.

    Seibert easily had his most productive game as a Lion, nailing two field goals from within 40 yards and another from 52. Detroit kickers previously averaged one field-goal attempt through the first four games of the season. Seibert will remain a risky start in Week 6 against the Bengals.

  • Lions' Austin Seibert: Activated from COVID-19 list

    The Lions reinstated Seibert (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

    After testing positive for the virus Sept. 23, Seibert proceeded to miss the Lions' next two games. Though Seibert is seemingly fully healthy again and is expected to handle kicking duties Sunday in Minnesota, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press notes that kicker Ryan Santoso was one of four practice-squad players protected by Detroit in Week 5. In the event Seibert isn't sharp in practices this week and needs additional time off to recover from his bout with the virus, Santoso could be elevated from the practice squad prior to Sunday's contest.

  • Lions' Austin Seibert: Remains away from team

    Seibert (COVID-19) remains away from the team and is uncertain to be available for Sunday's game against the Bears, Benjamin Raven of reports.

    If Seibert isn't able to clear COVID-19 protocols in time, look for Ryan Santoso to be promoted from the practice squad.

  • Lions' Austin Seibert: Tests positive for virus

    Seibert's placement on the Lions' reserve/COVID-19 list earlier Thursday was the result of a positive test, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

    Seibert's potential availability for Sunday's game against the Ravens could come down to his vaccination status; players placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list who are vaccinated can rejoin their teams after testing negative twice in 24-hour span, while unvaccinated players are automatically ruled out for at least 10 days. That being said, Seibert still looks like a long shot to clear the necessary protocols with less than 72 hours to go ahead of Sunday's 1 p.m. ET kickoff, so look for Detroit to promote Ryan Santoso from the practice squad to handle kicking duties Week 3.

  • Lions' Austin Seibert: Hits COVID list

    The Lions placed Seibert (undisclosed) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday.

    Seibert's status now looks to be in question for Sunday's upcoming contest against the Ravens. If he's not able to clear the league's COVID protocols in time to return Week 3, practice squad kicker Ryan Santoso would stand to bump into the starting lineup.

  • Lions' Austin Seibert: Perfect in limited action

    Seibert converted his only field-goal attempt and both of his PATs during Monday's 35-17 loss to the Packers.

    Doing all of his damage in the first half, Seibert was on his way to a respectable fantasy performance before the Lions offense completely fell apart in the second. While there may be weeks when Detroit can be effective on offense for a full four quarters, Seibert will remain a poor bet to produce on a weekly basis unless the Lions start becoming more efficient at getting into scoring range.
