Player Outlook
Hooker was the Lions' third-round pick in the NFL Draft, but because he tore his ACL last November, he's unlikely to play in 2023. Before the injury he dominated defenses to the tune of 253.3 pass yards and 43.8 rush yards per game with 68 total touchdowns over his last 24 outings. There's concern with the type of offense he ran at Tennessee translating to the NFL, but the greater problem is that when Hooker might be fully recovered, he'll be 26 years old with zero NFL experience on a team that hasn't exactly been pass-heavy over the past two seasons. There's no guarantee he'll be great or will have time on his side to develop into a stat-smashing pro. Passing on Hooker in 2023 leagues is easy, but he's also not worthy of a top-30 pick in rookie-only drafts because of his uncertain future.

  • Lions' Hendon Hooker: No game reps as rookie

    Hooker did not appear in a game during the 2023 season. Drafted in the third round of the 2023 NFL Draft, Hooker had a slow start to his professional career while rebounding from a torn ACL from November 2022, when he was a Heisman Trophy candidate at Tennessee. While he did not appear in a game as a rookie, Hooker did serve as the emergency No. 3 quarterback for the final three regular-season games and each of Detroit's playoff contests. With Teddy Bridgewater set to retire this offseason, the path is wide open for Hooker to open the 2024 campaign as Detroit's backup quarterback behind Jared Goff.

  • Lions' Hendon Hooker: Emergency QB for NFC Championship

    Hooker (mouth) is inactive for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the 49ers but will serve as the emergency third quarterback, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. Hooker was added to the Lions' injury report Friday after not participating in practice due to a tooth issue. Like he's done since he was cleared for his first action as a pro Week 16, Hooker is available Sunday if both Jared Goff and Teddy Bridgewater leave the game and cannot return.

  • Lions' Hendon Hooker: Questionable for Sunday

    Hooker (mouth) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the 49ers, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. The rookie out of Tennessee was a late addition to Detroit's injury report, as he popped up as a non-participant in Friday's practice due to a tooth issue. This injury puts Hooker's status for Sunday's NFC Championship Game in jeopardy, but even if he's able to suit up, he'd be in line to serve as the Lions' third-string quarterback behind Jared Goff and Teddy Bridgewater.

  • Lions' Hendon Hooker: Emergency option

    Hooker (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's matchup with the Vikings, but will be available as an emergency option at quarterback. Hooker will only see the field if both Jared Goff and Teddy Bridgewater sustain injuries. He has not played in any game this season.

  • Lions' Hendon Hooker: Inactive for Saturday night

    Hooker (coach's decision) is inactive for Saturday night's game against the Cowboys. Hooked was activated from the NFI list ahead of Week 16 but will be inactive for the second straight week. He's only available as the emergency third quarterback behind Jared Goff and Teddy Bridgewater.

  • Lions' Hendon Hooker: Serving as No. 3 QB

    Hooker (coach's decision) is inactive ahead of Sunday's game against the Vikings. The rookie quarterback out of Tennessee was activated from the Lions' reserve/non-football injury list Tuesday, but it still seems as if he's behind both Jared Goff and Teddy Bridgewater on the team's depth chart. Hooker will serve as Detroit's emergency option at QB in Week 16.

  • Lions' Hendon Hooker: Will be available at Minnesota

    The Lions activated Hooker (knee) from their reserve/non-football injury list Tuesday. Hooker has spent the entire season up to this point on Detroit's reserve/NFI list, but it now looks like he'll finally be available in Week 16. As long as one of Jared Goff or Teddy Bridgewater is available, Hooker still isn't likely to see the field this year.

  • Lions' Hendon Hooker: Remains out

    Hooker (knee) has been ruled out ahead of Sunday's game against the Bears. Hooker is still on Detroit's reserve/non-football injury list, and he'll remain out through Week 14. Once the 2023 third-round pick returns to the field, he could challenge Teddy Bridgewater for the Lions' backup quarterback role.

  • Lions' Hendon Hooker: Manages full practice Thursday

    Hooker (knee) was a full participant at practice Thursday. For the first time in his young NFL career, Hooker finally appears to be near full strength ahead of Week 13. Jared Goff seems to have the starting role under firm control despite cooling off after last season, and Teddy Bridgewater profiles as a capable backup, so it would still be surprising to see Hooker check in at any point this year except possibly to put a bow on a blowout.

  • Lions' Hendon Hooker: Cleared to practice

    Detroit designated Hooker (knee) to return from the reserve/non-football injury list Wednesday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. The rookie quarterback is now eligible to practice, with the Lions having a 21-day window to place him on the active roster before he defaults back to the NFI list for the remainder of the season. Hooker suffered an ACL tear last November during his final collegiate season at Tennessee, which resulted in him dropping out of the first-round discussion before the Lions selected him early in the third round at No. 68 overall. He isn't likely to play this season given that Jared Goff and Teddy Bridgewater both are healthy, but the Lions are keeping the door open for Hooker to return to the roster if his knee responds well to practice activity.

  • Lions' Hendon Hooker: Officially starting on NFI list

    The Lions placed Hooker (knee) on the reserve/non-football injury list Tuesday. Hooker will miss at least the first four games of the season as he continues to recover from a torn left ACL. Lions head coach Dan Campbell has already said the team views the 2023 season as a "redshirt year" for the rookie third-round pick, so Detroit may not have serious plans for him to play much, if at all, until 2024 at the earliest. Teddy Bridgewater remains the top backup to Jared Goff, with Adrian Martinez in place as the No. 3 quarterback.

  • Lions' Hendon Hooker: Headed for redshirt year

    Head coach Dan Campbell said Tuesday on the "Green Light with Chris Long" podcast that he doesn't anticipate Hooker (knee) playing during his rookie season. "Really, this is a redshirt year for him," Campbell said. "He's got to get this leg right first and then he'll learn under Jared [Goff], and then let's see what happens. If he can eventually become your two or maybe down the road, later on, it's more than that, but it's going to be a long time." The main question within the Lions quarterback room regards the future of Goff, whose release after the upcoming season would only cost Detroit $5 million in dead money. After that comes Hooker's acclimation to the NFL, as the Tennessee product who tore the ACL in his left knee last November remains without a clear timeline to resume full activities. Should Hooker miss most or all of the offseason, it seems unrealistic to think he could give the Lions much of a reason to move off of Goff in 2024 without having much practice time under his belt.
