Lions' Trey Flowers: Moving to outside linebacker
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers is viewed as an outside linebacker in Detroit's new defensive scheme, Justin Rogers of the Detroit News reports.

Playing within a Matt Patricia system that allowed the second-most points in league history last year, Flowers has generated just nine sacks in 22 games since signing a $90 million deal with Detroit in 2019. New defensive coordinator Aaron Glenn wants to use the expensive asset differently by moving him, along with Romeo Okwara, from defensive end to outside linebacker in Detroit's base defense. While Flowers will continue to line up as a traditional defensive end in obvious pass-rush situations, per Kyle Meinke of MLive.com, Flowers will have added responsibilities in pass coverage in other situations. This may mean that he will see less pass-rush snaps in 2020, but it may not be hard for Glenn to coax better fantasy numbers out of Flowers with a more effective defensive scheme.

Lions' Trey Flowers: Expects clearance for offseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers (forearm) expects to be "full go" for offseason workouts, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Flowers fractured his forearm Week 8 and subsequently missed the final nine games of the 2020 campaign. His expectation to be ready for work in April is very reasonable considering the defensive end will have had over six months to recover by that point. What's less reasonable to take for granted is the notion that Flowers will remain in Detroit for the 2021 season, as the new-look Lions front office has no loyalties to Flowers and the team reportedly could save about $14 million against the salary cap by designating him as a post-June 1 release.

Lions' Trey Flowers: Injures arm in Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers injured his forearm during Week 8's 41-21 loss to the Colts, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

While the extent of Flowers' injury was previously unknown, it has been confirmed that the 27-year-old fractured his forearm. The defensive end missed the previous nine matchups and will likely return by the beginning of offseason workouts. Flowers ended his 2020 season with 22 tackles (12 solo) and two sacks.

Lions' Trey Flowers: Lands on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers was placed on injured reserve Monday with an unspecified injury, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

Flowers played only 49 percent of defensive snaps during Sunday's loss to the Colts, and the specifics of his injury remain unclear. The 27-year-old will miss at least the next three games and will be eligible to return for the Thanksgiving Day matchup with the Texans.

Lions' Trey Flowers: Suiting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers (wrist) isn't on the injury report heading into Sunday's game against the Falcons.

Flowers has improved with each passing day in practice, going from no practice Wednesday to a limited session Thursday before upgrading to a full practice Friday. As a result, he'll be out there Sunday looking to build on his season total of two sacks.

Lions' Trey Flowers: Upgrades to limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers (wrist) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

Flowers sat out practice Wednesday due to a wrist injury, so it's encouraging to see him now having resumed handling at least limited reps. If he can upgrade to a full practice Friday, any concerns about the starting defensive end's availability for Sunday's game in Atlanta will be shed.

Lions' Trey Flowers: Sits out practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers (wrist) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice.

It's concerning that Flowers was unable to practice at all Wednesday, but he should be in good shape for Sunday's game versus the Falcons if he can get back onto the practice field by Friday. The 27-year-old defensive end has posted 17 tackles and two sacks this year, and Romeo Okwara likely would bump into a starting gig if Flowers misses time.

Lions' Trey Flowers: Picks up second sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers had five tackles (two solo), one sack and a forced fumble during Sunday's 34-16 win over Jacksonville.

The 27-year-old had a strip-sack on Gardner Minshew near midfield during the second quarter, though the Lions were unable to get any points off the turnover. Flowers has 17 total tackles, two sacks and two forced fumbles through the first five games of the season.

Lions' Trey Flowers: Sack in season opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers recorded six tackles, one sack and one forced fumble during Sunday's 27-23 loss to Chicago.

Flowers made a big play on 3rd-and-long in the fourth quarter by forcing a fumble on a sack of Mitchell Trubisky. However, the Detroit defense collectively fell apart down the stretch of the game once its top three cornerbacks were out due to injuries. If each of Jeff Okudah (hamstring), Desmond Trufant (hamstring), and Justin Coleman (hamstring) remain out in Week 2, Flowers could struggle to get his second sack of the season against Green Bay.

Lions' Trey Flowers: Seven sacks in first year with Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers totaled 51 tackles, seven sacks and two forced fumbles over 15 games in 2019.

Effectively swapping Flowers for the oft-injured Ezekial Ansah this past offseason, Detroit finally got an elite defensive end without the injury headaches. While fantasy owners may have expected better numbers from someone who was handed a $90 million contract, Flowers is a player who's used in a variety of ways and won't always contend for the league lead in sacks. That isn't to say Flowers isn't capable of logging double-digit sacks in a season, though, and the 26-year-old may have a better chance of doing so in 2020 if the team's front office can put more talent around him, specifically at linebacker.

Lions' Trey Flowers: Brings down Trubisky
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers made three tackles (both solo) and one sack during Thursday's 24-20 loss to the Bears.

Flowers cleared the league's five-step concussion protocol just in time to suit up versus the Bears on Thursday, and he managed to notch Detroit's only sack of the contest. He now has six sacks through 11 games.

Lions' Trey Flowers: Suiting up Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers (concussion) is active for Thursday's contest against the Bears.

Flowers has managed to clear the league's concussion protocol in time to suit up Thanksgiving Day. He'll draw his usual start at defensive end versus the Bears.

Lions' Trey Flowers: Questionable against Bears
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers (concussion) practiced without limitations Wednesday and is considered questionable for Thursday's game against the Bears.

As long as Wednesday's practice went well, Flowers has a good shot to clear the league's concussion protocol and gear up for the divisional bout. The fourth-year defensive end recorded a season-high seven tackles and a sack in Week 10's loss to the Bears.

Lions' Trey Flowers: Progressing through protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers (concussion) was a limited participant in Tuesday's practice, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Flowers practiced for the first time since suffering a concussion in Week 11's loss to the Cowboys. Coach Matt Patricia considers Flowers "day-to-day," according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press. The defensive end will be cutting it close for Thursday's matchup against the Bears.

Lions' Trey Flowers: Ruled out for Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers (concussion) is ruled out for Sunday's game against Washington.

Flowers continues to nurse a concussion suffered during Week 11's loss to the Cowboys. He'll need to fully clear the league's protocol for head injuries before retaking the field. With Da'Shawn Hand (ankle) also ruled out, expect Romeo Okwara and rookie Austin Bryant to start at defensive end.

Lions' Trey Flowers: Sitting out practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers (concussion) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice.

Flowers was concussed during Week 11's loss to the Cowboys, and he's trending in the wrong direction in regards to Sunday's game against the Redskins. Da'Shawn Hand (ankle) also didn't practice, so Romeo Okwara and rookie Austin Bryant could be the team's starting defensive ends for the NFC matchup.

Lions' Trey Flowers: Dealing with concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers remains in the concussion protocol Monday, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.

Flower exited Sunday's loss to the Cowboys to be evaluated for a concussion and will need to fully clear the protocol before retaking the field. The Lions are already short on depth at defensive end after Da'Shawn Hand (ankle) and Romeo Okwara (groin) missed Sunday's game.

Lions' Trey Flowers: Checked for concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers is being evaluated for a concussion following Sunday's loss to the Cowboys, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

It's unclear as to when and how Flowers picked up the nock, but he'll land in the league's mandated concussion protocol. It's likely that the team will update Flowers' status as the week wears on, especially when looking at his practice availability. If he's forced to sit in Week 12, Mike Daniels or John Atkins could be in line to see an increase in snaps on the defensive line.

Lions' Trey Flowers: Gets to Trubisky
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers registered seven tackles (six solo) and a sack in Sunday's 20-13 loss to the Bears.

Flowers came into the game second only to Jarrad Davis (eight) for the team lead in sacks, and he was one of five Lions defenders to notch a sack. The fifth-year pro now has five sacks on the season, and he's just 2.5 shy of the career high of 7.5 he recorded last year. He'll look to chase down Dak Prescott in Week 11's contest against the Cowboys.

Lions' Trey Flowers: Notches fourth sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers recorded three tackles (two solo) and a sack in Sunday's 31-24 loss to the Raiders.

Flowers has heated up in the pass rush lately with three sacks over the last two contests, and he has four overall this year. Through the halfway point of the season, that puts Flowers on track to surpass his career high of eight. He'll look to tack on more in Week 10 against the Bears.
