  • Austin Seibert: Waived by Detroit

    The Lions waived Seibert (groin) on Friday. Seibert won a preseason competition against Riley Patterson but then missed two field goals over the first three games and sat out Week 4 with a groin injury. Patterson now is with the Jaguars, while Michael Badgley is set to fill in for Seibert and attached to a Detroit offense that's been surprisingly productive, despite dealing with numerous injuries.

  • Lions' Austin Seibert: Maintains limited practice activity

    Seibert (groin) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice. Seibert appears to have shown some improvement in his recovery from the right groin injury that kept him sidelined for last week's 48-45 loss to the Seahawks, but he may need to turn in a full practice Friday for the Lions to feel comfortable proceeding with him as their kicker Sunday at New England. Before he sustained the groin injury, Seibert's job appeared to be in question after he missed a pair of field-goal tries in a narrow Week 3 loss to the Vikings, but special teams coordinator Dave Fipp expressed confidence in the 25-year-old's ability to improve and strengthen his hold on the role once healthy, per Tony Garcia of the Detroit Free Press. If Seibert needs more time to move past the groin injury, the Lions will promote Michael Badgley from the practice squad to handle kicking duties against the Patriots.

  • Lions' Austin Seibert: Logs limited practice

    Seibert (groin) was listed as a limited participant on the Lions' injury report Wednesday. Seibert didn't practice last week due to the injury and was ruled out for Sunday's loss to the Seahawks. The 25-year-old's status appears to have improved, however, given his ability to work back into Detroit's first practice of Week 5. Seibert converted three of five field-goal tries and all 12 of his PATs over the first three weeks, and he should see plenty of scoring opportunities in the Lions' prolific offense this season.

  • Lions' Austin Seibert: Won't play this week

    Seibert (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Seattle, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. Seibert missed practice all week and now will be out for the Week 4 contest. The Lions likely will call up Dominik Eberle from the practice squad, and while the matchup with Seattle is favorable, the equation also involves an inexperienced kicker whose team has multiple key injuries on offense (D'Andre Swift and Amon-Ra St. Brown both are out this week).

  • Lions' Austin Seibert: Sitting for practice again

    Seibert (groin) isn't participating in Thursday's practice, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. Seibert's right groin injury will keep him off the practice field for the second day in a row, but the Lions aren't yet closing the door on him being available to kick in Sunday's game against the Seahawks. In fact, special teams coordinator Dave Fipp told Kyle Meinke of MLive.com earlier Thursday that he "feels good about where [Seibert] is at" at this stage of the week, even after the kicker missed 48- and 56-yard field-goal attempts in last week's loss to the Vikings. Detroit has Dominik Eberle available on the practice squad as an option to kick Week 4 if Seibert doesn't progress from the injury as well as the Lions hope heading into Sunday.

  • Lions' Austin Seibert: Team sounds optimistic

    Special teams coordinator Dave Fipp said Thursday that he "feels good" about Seibert's (groin) chances of being available for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports. Seibert missed two long field-goal tries during the Lions' Week 3 loss to the Vikings and didn't practice Wednesday due to a groin injury, but the team seems to be optimistic about his chances of suiting up Week 4. The kicker has two more chances to practice in some capacity ahead of Sunday's game against Seattle.

  • Lions' Austin Seibert: Sidelined due to groin injury

    Seibert didn't practice Wednesday due to a groin injury. Seibert missed 48-yard and 56-yard field-goal attempts during the Lions' Week 3 loss to Minnesota, but it's unclear if he was dealing with his current groin injury during the contest. His absence Wednesday is certainly concerning, but he'll have two more opportunities to return to practice before the team has to make a decision on his status for Week 4.

  • Lions' Austin Seibert: Misses two from long range

    Seibert converted one of three field-goal attempts and three of three PATs during Sunday's 28-24 loss to Minnesota. Seibert had plenty of chances to put together a strong fantasy outing, but he missed a 48-yard try early on before pushing wide a 56-yard field-goal attempt late in the fourth quarter. With that said, the Lions offense remained productive for a third straight week, and it bodes well for Seibert's future prospects that Detroit is consistently getting into scoring position. Up next is a Week 4 home matchup against Seattle within the indoor confines of Ford Field.

  • Lions' Austin Seibert: Totals 10 points

    Seibert converted both field-goal attempts and all four PATs during Sunday's 36-27 win over Washington. Seibert again handled plenty of PATs as Detroit's offense stayed hot, but this time he also got a couple of field-goal attempts to buoy his fantasy output. Given the unlikelihood the Lions will maintain the red-zone efficiency they've displayed through the first two weeks of the season, Seibert could be in for big fantasy days on occasions when Detroit falters in that area. Up next is a Week 3 road matchup in the indoor confines of Minnesota's U.S. Bank Stadium.

  • Lions' Austin Seibert: Converts five PATs

    Seibert converted five of five PATs during Sunday's 38-35 loss to the Eagles. The good news for Seibert is that the Lions offense looks like it could be improved upon last year. The bad news is that the good news ultimately resulted in zero field-goal attempts Sunday since Detroit was able to find the end zone whenever it got into scoring position. However, its offensive scoring efficiency figures to vary most weeks, so better days should be ahead for Seibert from a production standpoint. Up next is a Week 2 home matchup against Washington.

  • Lions' Austin Seibert: Limited Wednesday

    Seibert (groin) was a limited participant during the Lions' practice Wednesday. Seibert appears to have picked up a right groin issue after winning out in Detroit's starting kicker competition over Riley Patterson this preseason. The 25-year-old converted 15 of his 17 total kicking attempts before missing the Lions' final nine games with a hip injury last season. Seibert's status will be worth monitoring ahead of the team's Week 1 matchup against Philadelphia on Sunday.

  • Lions' Austin Seibert: Has edge in kicking competition

    Lions head coach Dan Campbell said Monday that Seibert is a "tick" ahead of Riley Patterson in the kicking battle, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports. A hip injury placed Seibert on injured reserve midway through the 2021 campaign, and the Oklahoma product had to watch as Patterson set the Lions' franchise rookie record for kicking accuracy down the stretch. However, now that he's healthy, it appears the place-kicking gig is Seibert's to lose during training camp. Last season, the fourth-year kicker went 10-for-12 on field-goal attempts and a perfect 5-for-5 on extra-point tries, with his only misses coming from beyond 40 yards.

  • Lions' Austin Seibert: Working with starters

    Seibert has been working with the first-team offense during OTAs, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. A hip injury planted Seibert on injured reserve midway through the 2021 season, and the 2019 fifth-round draft pick proceeded to watch as Riley Patterson set the Lions franchise rookie record for kicking accuracy down the stretch. However, it not only appears that Seibert is healthy again, but that he has also been working ahead of Patterson during early offseason practices. However, even though Aldrick Rosas is now out of the picture, a two-man competition for the kicking job in Detroit could last all summer.

  • 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 MLive.com 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: 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: 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.
