Worrilow was quietly effective in 2017 while playing on a one-year deal with Detroit. He ultimately graded out as Pro Football Focus' 16th-ranked 4-3 outside linebacker, earning his highest marks in run defense. The Delaware product doesn't have nearly the same IDP appeal he flashed during his first few years in the league, but he has proven to be a valuable real-life asset and should have a number of suitors on the open market this offseason.
Worrilow (knee) won't carry an injury designation into Monday night's game against the Packers, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Worrilow was a full participant in practice this week and looks to be fully healthy after missing the last three games. The 27-year-old suffered a sprained MCL in early October which led to the absence, but he looks ready to take over at outside linebacker for the Lions.
After missing the last three games, it appears as if Worrilow is finally healthy enough to take the field again. However, the veteran linebacker was ruled inactive last week after logging full practices, so fantasy owners should wait until the Lions' official injury report is released Saturday before reinserting him into lineups.
Worrilow (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Steelers.
Worrilow's appearance on the inactive list is surprising, considering he logged a full day of practice Thursday. Look for Jalen Reeves-Maybin to see additional work at linebacker in Sunday's game. Worrilow will have an extra day to recover with Detroit playing the Packers on Monday night in Week 9.
Worrilow (knee) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.
Worrilow sat out of the Lions last two contests due to a knee injury, but after resting during the bye week, it appears as if the veteran will be cleared to return to action this Sunday against the Steelers. Worrilow should resume his role as starting outside linebacker, but rookie Jalen Reeves-Maybin could share reps if Worrilow isn't feeling 100 percent.
