Lions' LeGarrette Blount: Finds end zone twice in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blount rushed 12 times for 22 yards and two touchdowns in the Lions' 31-23 win over the Packers on Sunday.

Although he couldn't clear 2.0 yards per carry, Blount scored a couple of trademark touchdowns of one yard apiece in the Lions' strong first quarter. The veteran bruiser hasn't only averaged more than 4.0 yards per tote in one game this season, but with rookie Kerryon Johnson going down with an ankle injury Sunday, Blount could see his role increase if the rookie were to miss multiple weeks. The 31-year-old will next suit up against the Dolphins in Week 7 following a Week 6 bye.

Lions' LeGarrette Blount: Cleared to face Packers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blount (illness) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Packers.

Blount missed practice Wednesday and was limited Thursday, but the Lions cleared him for Week 5 after he managed a full session Friday. He may be limited to mostly goal-line and short-yardage work with Kerryon Johnson emerging as an effective runner on early downs.

Lions' LeGarrette Blount: Returns as limited participant
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blount (illness) practiced on a limited basis Thursday.

Absent Wednesday due to an illness, Blount's return one day later, albeit with a cap on his reps, is a step in the right direction. Even if he's listed on the Lions' final Week 5 injury report, he appears as if he'll be available Sunday against the Packers. On the season, Blount ranks third in offensive snap share (25.5 percent) among Detroit running backs behind Theo Riddick (42 percent) and Kerryon Johnson (38 percent).

Lions' LeGarrette Blount: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blount (illness) was present for the start of the Lions' practice Thursday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

The Lions will clarify later in the day whether Blount was a limited or full participant in the session. Even if Blount faces some restrictions with his reps Thursday, it's a positive sign for his health that he's simply in attendance for the session after the ailment prevented him from joining the Lions on Wednesday. At this point, the impressive play of rookie second-round pick Kerryon Johnson through the first four weeks of the season seems like the bigger hindrance to Blount's fantasy outlook for Sunday's game against the Packers than the illness.

Lions' LeGarrette Blount: Comes down with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blount didn't practice Wednesday due to an illness, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Fortunately for Blount, he's ill between games rather than right before the 1 p.m. EDT kickoff of Sunday's game against the Packers. Still, his activity -- or lack thereof -- will be one to watch as the Lions prepare for the divisional showdown. If Blount's illness lingers into the weekend, it could be mean more reps for others in the backfield, specifically Kerryon Johnson.
