  • Lions' Tom Kennedy: Sets up game-winning touchdown

    Kennedy caught one of two targets for 44 yards during Sunday's 31-30 win over the Bears.

    Kennedy didn't do any damage until there were less than four minutes left in the fourth quarter, when the wideout hauled in a pass on third-and-8 and turned it into a 44-yard gain that set up Detroit's game-winning touchdown. Kennedy has appeared in five games in 2022 but has yet to produce a big stat line despite seeing at least 50 percent of the snaps per contest. Even if Josh Reynolds (back) continues to miss time, Kennedy will not be worthy of much fantasy consideration.

  • Lions' Tom Kennedy: Likely to serve as No. 3 receiver

    Kennedy is expected to retain a role as the Lions' No. 3 receiver in Sunday's game against the Bears with Josh Reynolds (back) ruled out for a second consecutive contest, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

    During last week's 15-9 win over the Packers, the Lions were without Reynolds and played their first game since trading away top tight end T.J. Hockenson. The absences of Reynolds and Hockenson created opportunities for Kennedy and multiple other pass catchers to step into expanded roles behind No. 1 target Amon-Ra St. Brown, but none was able to deliver a notable fantasy performance. Kennedy ended up serving as the No. 3 wideout behind St. Brown and Kalif Raymond and was on the field for 67 percent of Detroit's offensive snaps, but he finished with a 1-16-0 receiving line on four targets. Kennedy could be headed for a similar snap share and target count once again in Week 10, but he can't be counted on to turn in useful numbers.

  • Lions' Tom Kennedy: Blanked by Patriots

    Kennedy failed to catch his only target during Sunday's 29-0 loss to New England.

    With Amon-Ra St. Brown back in a limited capacity from an ankle sprain, Kennedy saw a little less playing time than last week but still logged over half of the offensive snaps. However, like the rest of his teammates not named Josh Reynolds, Kennedy wasn't able to produce much. With St. Brown back and DJ Chark (ankle) potentially returning in the near future, Kennedy could easily go back to being a healthy scratch when the Lions come out of their Week 6 bye.

  • Lions' Tom Kennedy: Signed to active roster

    The Lions signed Kennedy to the active roster from their practice squad Wednesday.

    With Amon-Ra St. Brown (ankle) and DJ Chark (ankle) both ruled out, Kennedy was elevated to the active roster for the team's Week 4 loss to the Seahawks. Quintez Cephus (foot) had to leave the game early, so Kennedy ended up handling a significant workload, catching three of five targets for 54 yards. The statuses of St. Brown, Chark and Cephus for Week 5 remain unclear, but Detroit will add Kennedy to its active roster as insurance and will be confident thrusting him into game action after his solid performance against Seattle.

  • Tom Kennedy: Bumped down to practice squad

    Kennedy reverted to the Lions' practice squad Monday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

    Kennedy got the bump up to the active roster for Sunday's loss to the Seahawks with Amon-Ra St. Brown and DJ Chark both out with ankle injuries. The 26-year-old ultimately handled a significant workload after Quintez Cephus suffered an in-game foot injury. Kennedy ended up seeing five targets, bringing in three of them for 54 yards. Depending on the status of St. Brown, Chark and Cephus for Week 5 against the Patriots, Kennedy may earn another elevation to the active roster.

  • Lions' Tom Kennedy: Joins amidst injuries

    Kennedy was elevated to the Lions' active roster Saturday.

    The Lions announced DJ Chark (ankle) would be unavailable Saturday as the wide receiver joins an alarmingly long list of Lions star players unable to suit up for Sunday's contest. Kennedy had some fun moments toward the end of the 2021 season, including three separate games with at least two targets, but expect the slot receiver to factor in sparingly with Josh Reynolds (ankle), Kalif Raymond and Quintez Cephus soaking up the majority of the wide receiver snaps.

  • Tom Kennedy: Gets practice squad chance

    The Lions signed Kennedy to the practice squad Wednesday, Tim Twentyman of the team's official site reports.

    Kennedy's strong preseason with Detroit earns him a chance to continue developing with the team. He suited up for 12 games with the Lions last season, in which span he secured six of 10 targets for 54 yards.

  • Tom Kennedy: Waived by Lions

    Kennedy was waived by the Lions on Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Like last year, Kennedy put together another strong preseason, but this time around he won't survive roster cuts. The Lions seem set to roll with Kalif Raymond at punt returner and Godwin Igwebuike at kick returner, leaving Kennedy without a spot on special teams in which he could have earned his keep. However, Kenndy's preseason production could earn him a look from another team, and the Lions at least gave him the courtesy of a head start to find a new home ahead of Tuesday's roster deadline.

  • Lions' Tom Kennedy: Comes back to Earth

    Kennedy caught three of six targets for 15 yards during Sunday's 19-9 loss to the Steelers.

    Kennedy again saw plenty of volume, so his relatively low production was disappointing after he racked up both a 100-yard and a multi-touchdown game in Weeks 1 and 2 of the preseason, respectively. While he's a candidate to survive roster cuts nonetheless, per Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, Kennedy presumably would be entering the year buried on the depth chart and will need to impress in order to stick around once Jameson Williams (knee) is ready to go.

  • Lions' Tom Kennedy: Keeps rolling with two TDs

    Kennedy caught five of seven targets for 24 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 27-26 preseason win over the Colts.

    Kennedy scored from five yards out on the final play of the first half and found the end zone again on a 10-yard catch in the third quarter. Between this effort and his 104-yard outing against Atlanta in the preseason opener, Kennedy has certainly bolstered his chances of making the Lions' roster. He'll get one more chance to make his case when the Lions travel to Pittsburgh on Aug. 28 for their preseason finale.
