  • Lions' Brock Wright: Stays with Lions

    Wright signed a one-year contract with the Lions on Monday, Howard Balzer of reports.

    Wright joined the Lions as an undrafted free agent out of Notre Dame in 2021. The rookie appeared in 10 games for the Lions last season, all after Week 7, recording 12 catches on 17 targets for 117 yards and two touchdowns. Currently No. 2 on the Lions' positional depth chart at tight end, Wright will work to build on his rookie campaign this upcoming season.

  • Lions' Brock Wright: Scores on trick play

    Wright caught two of two targets for 51 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 37-30 win over Green Bay.

    Wright returned from a week off in the COVID-19 protocols and again logged over 70 percent of the offensive snaps while serving as the Lions' top tight end in the absence of T.J. Hockenson (finger). While most of Wright's production came on a flea flicker in the third quarter when the tight end snuck behind the defense for a 36-yard touchdown, the Notre Dame product is continuing to show that he can be a little more than just a blocker at the pro level. In total, he finishes the 2021 campaign with 12 catches for 117 yards and two touchdowns on 17 targets despite not seeing regular action until the second half of the year. Considering he will now be an exclusive-rights free agent, Wright is a strong candidate to return to Detroit in 2022 as a depth option behind Hockenson.

  • Lions' Brock Wright: Ready to go Sunday

    Wright (groin) is active for Sunday against the Packers.

    Wright was limited in practice all week, but he feels good enough to play in the Lions' season finale. Wright should fill in as the No. 1 tight end on the positional depth chart, a spot that hasn't yielded big results for Wright yet. The rookie has 10 catches on 15 targets for 66 yards and a touchdown in nine games. Numbers he'll look to expand on Sunday against the Packers.

  • Lions' Brock Wright: Uncertain for Sunday

    Wright (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Green Bay, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

    Wright was a limited practice participant throughout the week, after missing last week's game on the reserve/COVID-19 list. His return to the lineup would leave fewer snaps for Jared Pinkney and Ross Travis, neither of whom was targeted in last week's loss to Seattle. The 23-year-old Wright did play 75 percent of snaps in Week 15 and 73 percent in Week 16, but with only three catches for four yards on four targets between the two games. A solid outing Week 18 could help him stick around on the depth chart behind T.J. Hockenson (IR/hand) next year.

  • Lions' Brock Wright: Limited again Thursday

    Wright (groin) remained limited at Thursday's practice.

    The tight end opened the week with a limited practice Wednesday and was at that level again Thursday. Wright still has Friday's practice to ramp up his activity ahead of the Lions' season finale versus the Packers on Sunday.

  • Lions' Brock Wright: Limited practice Wednesday

    Wright was a limited participant in practice Wednesday due to a groin injury.

    The tight end was activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday after his positive test for the virus forced to miss the Lions' Week 17 loss to the Seahawks. Wright wasn't known to be dealing with an injury prior to landing on the list, but his ability to practice Wednesday in any capacity bodes well for his chances to play Sunday against the Packers.

  • Lions' Brock Wright: Off COVID-19 list

    The Lions reinstated Wright (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday.

    Wright was unable to clear the NFL's COVID-19 return-to-play protocol in advance of Sunday's 51-29 loss to the Seahawks, resulting in him missing his first game since being promoted from the practice squad back in Week 7. Neither of the two tight ends Detroit had active Week 17 -- Jared Pinkney and Ross Travis -- drew a target in the loss, so Wright should be relatively unchallenged as he reclaims the starting job for this weekend's season finale versus Green Bay. Since settling into a larger role when T.J. Hockenson (thumb) was shut down for the season after Week 13, Wright has recorded six receptions for 24 yards on nine targets over three games.

  • Lions' Brock Wright: Not playing Week 17

    Wright (illness) won't be available for Sunday's game in Seattle after the Lions didn't activate him from the reserve/COVID-19 list prior to Saturday's deadline for week 17 roster moves, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Detroit will be without three of its top pass catchers in Wright and wideouts Josh Reynolds and Kalif Raymond, all of whom tested positive for the virus this week and weren't able to exit the NFL's COVID-19 return-to-play protocol. With both T.J. Hockenson (thumb) and Shane Zylstra (kneecap) done for the season, Wright was expected to dominate the snaps at tight end for Detroit's final two games before he landed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday. With Wright out this week, the Lions will likely turn to a combination of Jared Pinkney and Ross Travis to play snaps at the position.

  • Lions' Brock Wright: Placed on reserve/COVID-19 list

    Wright (illness) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday.

    Wright tested positive for COVID-19 Tuesday and will now enter the NFL's protocols for the virus. The tight end operated as the Lions' top option at the position in Week 16 against the Falcons, catching three balls for four yards in the loss. With Brock's status for Week 17 against the Seahawks in question, Jared Pinkney may step into a starting role.

  • Lions' Brock Wright: Grabs three short passes

    Wright caught three of three targets for four yards during Sunday's 20-16 loss to Atlanta.

    Wright got back in the box score after going catchless last week in Arizona, but all of his looks were at or near the line of scrimmage. While the loss of Shane Zylstra (knee) could cement him as Detroit's clear-cut No. 1 tight end, the Notre Dame product doesn't seem to have the skill set or role to be a worthwhile fantasy contributor in Week 17 against Seattle.

  • Lions' Brock Wright: No catches against Arizona

    Wright was targeted once but did not catch a pass during Sunday's 30-12 win over the Cardinals.

    Wright trailed Shane Zylstra in offensive snaps last week against Denver, but this time Wright logged three quarters of the playing time while Zylstra was held under half of it. However, neither tight end found much success as a receiver, despite Detroit finding immense offensive success. As such, neither of Wright nor Zylstra is worth much fantasy consideration, especially with Jared Goff (COVID-19) uncertain to play Sunday against Atlanta.

  • Lions' Brock Wright: Three catches without Hockenson

    Wright caught three of five passes for 20 yards during Sunday's 38-10 loss to the Broncos.

    Wright seemed in store for a heightened load with T.J. Hockenson (hand) sidelined. While Wright certainly was more involved as a receiver, he did it while not topping 60 percent of the offensive snaps. Instead, Shane Zylstra led Detroit tight ends in snaps, though neither managed a useful stat line for fantasy purposes. Even if Hockenson remains sidelined Week 15 against Arizona, neither Wright nor Zylstra will be worthy of much fantasy consideration.

  • Lions' Brock Wright: In line for No. 1 duties Sunday

    Wright is set to serve as the Lions' top tight end Sunday in Denver with T.J. Hockenson (hand) doubtful to play in the contest, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.

    An undrafted rookie, Wright didn't make it past roster cut-down day at the end of the preseason, but the Lions elevated him from the practice squad twice before signing him to the active roster for good Nov. 8 in the wake of Darren Fells' release. Since the Lions' Week 9 bye, Wright has earned between 28 and 51 percent of offensive snaps over the last four games, compiling four catches (on six targets) for 42 yards and one touchdown. The team will be without its top two running backs D'Andre Swift (shoulder) and Jamaal Williams (COVID-19) on Sunday, so Detroit may air it out a bit more than usual.

  • Lions' Brock Wright: Snags first career touchdown

    Wright caught two of three targets for 28 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 29-27 win over Minnesota.

    Running as the No. 2 tight end behind T.J. Hockenson, Wright took advantage of a Vikings defense without top linebackers Eric Kendricks or Anthony Barr to score his first career touchdown. However, he's caught a pass in just half of his first six career games since the undrafted tight end was first promoted from the practice squad in late October. Wright would need to build upon this performance in a big way in order to enter the fantasy conversation.
