Lions' Damon Harrison: Full participant Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison (calf/knee) was a full participant during Wednesday's practice, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

After missing last Thursday's Thanksgiving clash with the Bears, Harrison appears good to go for Week 14 and should be on the field Sunday when Detroit visits Minnesota to face the Vikings at U.S. Bank Stadium.

Lions' Damon Harrison: Won't face Bears
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison (knee) is inactive for Thursday's game against the Bears.

Harrison suffered a knee injury versus the Redskins this past Sunday, and he won't manage to retake the field due in part to a short week of recovery. Mike Daniels and John Atkins stand to play expanded roles on defense in Harrison's stead.

Lions' Damon Harrison: Deemed questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison (knee) is considered questionable for Thursday's game against the Bears.

Harrison overcame a groin injury to play this past Sunday against the Redskins, but he picked up a knee injury in the contest. The 30-year-old defensive tackle was limited in practice all week, and his final status will be revealed 90 minutes before Thursday's 12:30 p.m. ET kickoff.

Lions' Damon Harrison: Good to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison (groin) is active for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

The Lions took cautionary steps with Harrison since he's been battling this groin injury for nearly a month, but the veteran defensive tackle should resume starting reps. Harrison's a valuable run-stopper, and he's marked 28 tackles (17 solo) and two sacks through nine games this year.

Lions' Damon Harrison: Practicing without limitations
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison (groin) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Harrison managed to play through a groin injury during Sunday's loss to the Bears, during which he notched four solo tackles, and he now appears to have moved past the issue entirely. Barring any setbacks, expect the veteran defensive tackle to play his usual role during Sunday's tilt against the Cowboys.

Lions' Damon Harrison: Still battling groin injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears due to a groin injury.

Harrison suffered the groin injury Week 8 against the Giants but played through the injury in last week's loss to the Raiders. The 30-year-old seems likely to be available for Week 10, but his status will officially remain up in the air until Sunday.

Lions' Damon Harrison: Generates six stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison tallied six tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 31-24 loss to the Raiders.

Harrison shook off a groin injury to suit up for this contest. He logged 28 of 72 defensive snaps (39 percent) -- his second-lowest mark since Week 1 -- and tied his season high in tackles. Harrison will continue stuffing runs against the Bears in Week 10.

Lions' Damon Harrison: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison (groin) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Harrison got through last week's game with the same issue, and appears to be on track for the same scenario this week. Now that the veteran is officially healthy, he's expected to assume his usual starting role at defensive tackle, tasked with slowing down running back Josh Jacobs.

Lions' Damon Harrison: Officially questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Raiders, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

Harrison managed to play through his groin injury Week 8 versus the Giants (though he did briefly leave the contest), so he appears to have a fair shot at suiting up Sunday in Oakland. The veteran defensive tackle's presence would be a notable boost as the Lions work to contain Josh Jacobs (shoulder).

Lions' Damon Harrison: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison (groin) returned to Sunday's game against the Giants, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Harrison was initially ruled questionable to return after leaving in the first half, but he was on the field following halftime. The veteran run-stopper will continue keying in on Saquon Barkley and containing quarterback Daniel Jones.

Lions' Damon Harrison: Appears to aggravate injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison was forced out of Sunday's game against the Giants with a groin injury.

Harrison was questionable coming into Sunday's contest due to a groin injury, so he may have re-injured it against his former team. With their top run-stuffer out, the Lions are expected to turn to inexperienced John Atkins at defensive tackle, and they only have five healthy defensive linemen to rotate into their 4-3 scheme.

Lions' Damon Harrison: Ready to go Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison (groin) is active Week 8 against the Giants.

Harrison official showed up on the injury report with a groin injury, but the Lions' official site suggests that at least part of his absence was due to regular veteran rest. He'll be back in his regular role as expected, though his job as a run-stuffer tends to limit his tackle totals, and thus his overall effectiveness in standard IDP formats.

October 25, 2019 04:04 PM
Lions' Damon Harrison: Receives questionable tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison (groin) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Harrison put in full practices on Wednesday and Friday and seems likely to play Week 8, but he sat out Thursday's practice and isn't guaranteed to be available this week. Mike Daniels (foot) was already ruled out, so the Lions can ill afford to be with Harrison, as well.

October 23, 2019 06:24 PM
Lions' Damon Harrison: Full speed ahead
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison (groin) practiced in full Wednesday.

Harrison was forced out of Sunday's loss to the Vikings due to a groin injury, and he appears to have already put the issue behind him. Barring any setbacks, expect Harrison to draw his usual start along Detroit's defensive line Week 8 against the Giants.

Lions' Damon Harrison: Exits game Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison (groin) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Vikings, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Harrison was stuck in a battle with rookie center Garrett Bradbury in the second quarter and stayed on the ground in pain. It's likely the team will evaluate Harrison during halftime before the team elects to comment again on his status. If he's unable to suit up for the second half, John Atkins and Kevin Strong would be in line to see an increase in snaps.

Lions' Damon Harrison: Plays 40 snaps in last-second loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison recorded three tackles and a sack in Monday night's loss to Green Bay.

The 40 snaps were a season-high for Harrison who now has two sacks through six weeks. With only 13 total tackles to his name to this point in the season, the 30-year-old defensive tackle carries little value in IDP formats.

Lions' Damon Harrison: Registers sack against Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison recorded five tackles and one sack during Sunday's 27-24 victory over the Eagles.

Harrison recorded his 10th career sack and is now one of only two active defensive tackles in the NFL with at least 400 tackles, 30 TFLs, 10 sacks, three forced fumbles and at least one interception in his career. The multi-category producer is one of the most important pieces of the Lions defense and that's unlikely to change anytime soon, despite the 30-year-old's advanced age.

Lions' Damon Harrison: Pens one-year extension Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison and the Lions agreed on a one-year, $11 million extension Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Per Schefter, the deal will also include $12 million in guarantees granted at the end of this year. Harrison had threatened to hold out of training camp without a new deal earlier this offseason, and he eventually received a nice payday. "Snacks" has recorded 50 tackles (37 solo) and 3.5 sacks since coming over to the Lions in October. The veteran will look to have a key role on the defensive line for the Lions in a stacked NFC North race.

Lions' Damon Harrison: Coming off NFI list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison (undisclosed) will be activated from the non-football injury list to participate in practice Thursday, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

Harrison ended his contract holdout before the start of training camp, but an undisclosed issue has kept him off the practice field. He'll have more than three weeks to gear up for Week 1 of the regular season.

Lions' Damon Harrison: Placed on NFI list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions placed Harrison (undisclosed) on the non-football injury list Thursday, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.

Though Harrison's injury remains undisclosed, there's no reason to consider it anything more than minor at this stage. The veteran defensive tackle is seeking a new contract and did not report to OTAs or minicamp, so his presence at training camp may shine a somewhat optimistic light on the state of negotiations. Harrison notched 50 tackles (37 solo), 3.5 sacks and one forced fumble in 10 games with the Lions last season and is one of the team's standout defensive players alongside Darius Slay (undisclosed), who also reported to training camp despite an ongoing contract dispute.
