Lions' Brock Wright: Heads to IR, done for season
The Lions placed Wright (forearm) on injured reserve Wednesday.
Wright's season is officially over after he suffered a broken forearm during Detroit's divisional-round victory over Tampa Bay. Anthony Firkser and Zach Ertz -- who was officially signed to the team's practice squad Wednesday -- will be available as depth options behind starting tight end Sam LaPorta (knee) for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the 49ers with Wright sidelined....

Lions' Brock Wright: Breaks forearm in Sunday's win
Head coach Dan Campbell said after Sunday's 31-23 win over the Buccaneers that Wright sustained a broken forearm, Jeff Risdon of USA Today reports.
With such a serious injury, Wright will likely be out for next weekend's NFC Championship Game against the 49ers. Before sustaining the injury Sunday, Wright hauled in his lone target for a 29-yard reception. Anthony Firkser is set to move into the No. 2 spot at tight end behind Sam LaPorta if Wright can't play versus the 49ers.... See More ... See Less
Lions' Brock Wright: Exits game
Wright has a forearm injury and is questionable to return to Sunday's divisional-round playoff game against the Buccaneers.
The second-string tight end caught one pass for 29 yards before exiting. Wright had 13 catches for 91 yards and a touchdown in the regular season. Anthony Firkser should take his place behind starter Sam LaPorta.... See More ... See Less
Lions' Brock Wright: In line to face Tampa Bay
Wright (hip) has no injury designation for Sunday's game against the Bucs, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Wright practiced in full all week and is good to go for the divisional round. He's likely to fill his typical backup and blocking duties on a fraction of the offensive snaps after Sam LaPorta avoided any setbacks with his knee last Sunday against the Rams.... See More ... See Less
Lions' Brock Wright: Logs full practice Wednesday
Wright (hip) was a full participant in practice Wednesday.
As expected, Wright looks on track to be ready to go for Sunday's wild-card game versus the Rams. Meanwhile, top tight end Sam LaPorta (knee) didn't participate in practice Wednesday and is uncertain to be available for the playoff opener, making it increasingly likely that Wright finds himself in a starting role this weekend....

Lions' Brock Wright: On track to play Sunday
Wright (hip) will practice this week and is on pace to play in the wild-card round, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.
Wright sat out for Detroit's last three regular-season games due to a hip injury he sustained in Week 15 versus the Broncos, but it looks like he should come back for the Lions' wild-card matchup versus the Rams. If Sam LaPorta (knee) is sidelined, Wright would project as the Lions' starting tight end.... See More ... See Less
Lions' Brock Wright: Will sit out season finale
Wright (hip) has been ruled out from Sunday's Week 18 matchup against Minnesota.
Wright will sit out a third straight game due to a hip injury that has kept him out of practice since he was hurt versus the Broncos in Week 15. James Mitchell has been seeing more work in Wright's absence, and Anthony Firkser has been active on game day each of the past two weeks. Firsker was waived Thursday, but he could be back on Detroit's practice squad in time to be elevated for Sunday's regular-season finale.... See More ... See Less
Lions' Brock Wright: Still tending to hip injury
Wright (hip) did not participate at practice Wednesday.
Wright has sat out of both of Detroit's last two games due to a hip injury, and now he's missing the first practice of the new week. He'll probably have to return to practice Thursday or Friday to have a chance to play in Week 18.... See More ... See Less
Lions' Brock Wright: Won't play at Dallas
Wright (hip) is listed as out for Saturday's game at Dallas, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.
The game status is not surprising considering Wright was not able to practice at all during the week. In his absence, 2022 fifth-rounder James Mitchell will probably get more work on early downs and near the goal line.... See More ... See Less
Lions' Brock Wright: Still nursing hip injury
Wright (hip) was listed as a non-participant on the Lions' practice estimate Tuesday, Eric Woodyard of ESPN.com reports.
Wright is apparently still being bothered by the hip issue he picked up in Week 15 versus the Broncos. He'll likely need to practice in some capacity Wednesday or Thursday to give himself a chance to suit up in Week 17.... See More ... See Less
Lions' Brock Wright: Missing Week 16
Wright (hip) has been ruled out ahead of Sunday's game against the Vikings.
Wright seems to have suffered a hip injury in the Lions' Week 15 win over the Broncos, and after missing the entire week of practice, it's no surprise that he's been ruled out Sunday. James Mitchell will get the opportunity to serve as Detroit's No. 2 tight end with Wright missing Week 16.... See More ... See Less
Lions' Brock Wright: Sits out another practice
Wright (hip) was a non-participant in Thursday's practice.
Wright has been a spectator for both of the Lions' first two Week 16 practices, so he'll likely need to log some on-field reps Friday to have a shot at playing Sunday in Minnesota. If Wright is sidelined this weekend, James Mitchell would step in as the top backup to starting tight end Sam LaPorta.... See More ... See Less
Lions' Brock Wright: Misses Wednesday's practice
Wright didn't practice Wednesday due to a hip injury.
Wright departed in the first half of Saturday's 42-17 win over Denver with what was called a groin injury at the time, though Detroit is now labeling the health concern differently. The tight end regularly logs 30 to 60 percent of the Lions' offensive snaps, but his contributions in the team's passing game have been limited behind standout rookie Sam LaPorta. Wright's status is up in the air for Sunday's contest against Minnesota, and if he's unavailable, James Mitchell could see more work as the No. 2 tight end.... See More ... See Less
Lions' Brock Wright: Questionable to return Saturday
Wright exited Saturday's game against the Broncos with a groin injury and is questionable to return.
Wright suffered the injury in the first half of the game and was not targeted prior to his exit. The severity of the issue is currently unclear.... See More ... See Less
