Lions' Mike Daniels: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels (arm) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Chris Burke of The Athletic reports.

Daniels left this past Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers with an arm injury, and the Lions will shut him down for the year. The long-time Packer finishes his first season in the Motor City with 10 tackles and a sack over nine games. Daniels is an unrestricted free agent in March.

Lions' Mike Daniels: Suffers arm injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels exited Sunday's game against the Buccaneers with an arm injury.

The 30-year-old played a season-high 53 defensive snaps last week but sustained the injury during the first half Sunday. John Atkins and Frank Herron could see increased work at defensive tackle while Daniels is sidelined.

Lions' Mike Daniels: Notches first sack with Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels recorded his first sack of the season in Sunday's 20-13 loss to the Bears.

Daniels received his first game action since Week 3 after missing five games with a foot injury. The veteran's availability comes at a crucial time in Detroit's season, as they sit at 3-5-1 with their season on the ropes. Daniels and the rest of the Lions' defensive line will be tasked with slowing down a high-powered Dallas offense in Week 11.

Lions' Mike Daniels: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears.

Daniels hasn't seen game action since Week 3 and was a limited practice participant this week. The 30-year-old will likely fill a rotational role on the defensive line if he's able to suit up.

Lions' Mike Daniels: Downgraded to out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels (foot) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Daniels was originally considered doubtful, so it's not much of a surprise to ultimately see him ruled out. Kevin Strong and John Atkins should see rotational snaps at defensive tackle in his place.

Lions' Mike Daniels: Doubtful for Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels (foot) is considered doubtful to suit up against the Raiders on Sunday, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

Daniels logged a trio of limited practice sessions this week, but it appears as though he's trending towards a fifth straight absence. Expect Kevin Strong and John Atkins to see rotational snaps at defensive tackle once again Week 9.

Lions' Mike Daniels: Won't return Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels (foot) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Daniels was able to return to practice as a limited participant Thursday and Friday, but it wasn't enough to give him a chance to play Sunday. It will be the veteran defensive lineman's fourth consecutive absence due to the foot issue. Kevin Strong and John Atkins should work as rotational defensive tackles for the Lions in Week 8.

Lions' Mike Daniels: Upgrades to limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels (foot) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Daniels couldn't practice Wednesday or at all last week, which makes Thursday's limited participation a notable positive step. The veteran defensive tackle appears to have a chance to suit up Sunday against the Giants.

Lions' Mike Daniels: Will miss another game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels (foot) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Daniels couldn't practice in any capacity this week, so his absence doesn't come as much of a surprise. He'll miss a third consecutive game due to a lingering foot injury, and a timetable for his return remains unknown.

October 17, 2019 04:28 PM
Lions' Mike Daniels: Can't practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels (foot) did not practice Thursday.

Daniels hasn't practiced in any capacity this week. He'll have one more opportunity to upgrade his practice participation before Sunday's tilt against the Vikings, but he currently appears on track to miss a third consecutive game.

October 12, 2019 07:44 PM
Lions' Mike Daniels: Won't play in Green Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels (foot) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Packers.

Daniels won't get a revenge game (at least yet) against the team that cut him this summer. In fact, it looks like he has a long way to go after not practicing all week. With A'Shawn Robinson (knee) also questionable, Damon Harrison and Kevin Strong could both be used heavily Monday.

October 9, 2019 05:00 PM
Lions' Mike Daniels: Unable to practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels (foot) won't participate in Wednesday's practice, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.

It appears the bye week wasn't enough to get Daniels back onto the practice field, and he's trending toward his second straight absence. However, he'll have extra recovery time with a Monday night game versus the Packers on tap, so the first official injury report won't be revealed until Thursday.

September 27, 2019 05:20 PM
Lions' Mike Daniels: Ruled out vs. Kansas City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels (foot) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Daniels was unable to practice all week since he was spotted in a walking boot and crutches after Sunday's win over the Eagles. It remains unclear what sort of recovery timeline Daniels is facing with the foot injury, so consider him week-to-week for now.

September 25, 2019 02:28 PM
Lions' Mike Daniels: Won't practice yet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels (foot) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Daniels sported a walking boot and crutches following this past Sunday's win over the Eagles, so it's not surprising that he's being held out of practice early in the week. Still, Daniels doesn't have any broken bones and the team hasn't ruled him out for Week 4's game versus the Chiefs, so he'll look to get onto the practice field by Friday to have a chance at suiting up.

Lions' Mike Daniels: Walking with crutches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels (foot) had a walking boot and crutches following Sunday's win over the Eagles, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

The initial tests didn't show any broken bones in Daniels' foot. However, the team may conduct more tests on Daniels to see how long he'll need to sit out. The Lions' next game is Week 4 versus the Chiefs.

September 22, 2019 04:28 PM
Lions' Mike Daniels: Initial tests positive
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Initial tests revealed no broken bones in Daniel's foot, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

While Daniels will presumably undergo further testing to identify the true extent of the injury, it's an encouraging sign that initial tests didn't reveal any structural damage.

September 22, 2019 03:16 PM
Lions' Mike Daniels: Done for day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels (foot) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against Philadelphia.

Daniels was forced to leave the game in the second quarter and, as evidenced by this news, is dealing with an injury serious enough to keep him out. With the veteran sidelined, Kevin Strong likely will continue to operate on the defensive line. It's likely the team will have an official call on Daniels' status following the game or in the coming days.

September 22, 2019 01:44 PM
Lions' Mike Daniels: Suffers injury Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels suffered a foot injury in Sunday's clash against the Eagles and is questionable to return.

It's unclear how the veteran picked up the injury, but it's serious enough to force him to miss time. As long as Daniels is sidelined, Kevin Strong is the only healthy depth defensive tackle on the roster.

Lions' Mike Daniels: Starter during third preseason game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels totaled two tackles during Friday's preseason game against the Bills.

The Lions opened the game in a 3-4 set with Daniels as a starter alongside Damon Harrison and A'Shawn Robinson. However, neither Trey Flowers (coach's decision) or Da'Shawn Hand (arm) were available to play, so it's hard to say if Daniels is slated for a starting role when the regular season rolls around.

August 20, 2019 11:48 AM
Lions' Mike Daniels: Resumes practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Daniels (foot) participated in practice Monday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Daniels did not suit up for Saturday's preseason loss to the Texans due to a foot injury, and he now appears good to go. The veteran defensive tackle projects to play a key role behind Damon Harrison and A'Shawn Robinson along Detroit's defensive line.
