Lions' Jarrad Davis: Backed by Patricia
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (ankle) remains in Detroit's plans despite the team declining to pick up his fifth-year option, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports. "I think JD is a cornerstone of what we're trying to do, and he's in those big-picture plans of where we're trying to go," head coach Matt Patricia said during a recent video call with reporters.

After bringing in two notable free-agent linebackers this offseason, Detroit officially declined to pick up Davis' fifth-year option this month. However, Patricia doesn't make it seem as if the writing is on the wall for Davis' time in Detroit despite a down 2019 season. Instead, the team is probably just unwilling to pay over $10 million for Davis' services in 2021, preferring to instead work out a long-term deal with a lesser cap hit. While it remains to be seen to what extent Jamie Collins' arrival will specifically impact Davis' role, it's possible Davis could continue to post strong tackle numbers in 2020 (he had 196 total tackles over his first two NFL seasons) and beyond, even if his real-life contributions aren't actually worthy of his first-round pedigree.

Lions' Jarrad Davis: Fifth-year option declined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions are expected to decline the fifth-year option on Davis' (ankle) contract, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Davis, a 2017 first-round pick, would be on the books for over $10 million in 2021 if the team opted to pick up his option. Ultimately, Detroit has decided to err on the side of caution and avoid that commitment. The 24-year-old has recorded 259 tackles (176 solo), 10.0 sacks, nine passes defensed, one pick and five forced fumbles across 41 games through three years in Detroit.

Lions' Jarrad Davis: Lions unsure on fifth-year option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

GM Bob Quinn said the Lions have yet to make a decision on whether pick up Davis' (ankle) fifth-year option for 2021, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.

The 24-year-old played in only 11 games in 2019 and landed on injured reserve in December, and the team has until May 3 to decide whether to pick up the option. The option is only guaranteed for injury, but Detroit may not be comfortable risking what is likely to be $10-plus million on Davis for 2021.

Lions' Jarrad Davis: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (ankle/knee) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

That's now nine different Lions starters entering the year that have either been placed on injured reserve or missed at least four games due to injury. The middle linebacker will ultimately end his 2019 campaign with 63 tackles and two sacks across 11 games.

Lions' Jarrad Davis: Declared out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (ankle/knee) is out for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

Davis was unable to practice at all this week, so this comes as little surprise. Christian Jones and Jahlani Tavai could be asked to step in for the 24-year-old against the Buccaneers.

Lions' Jarrad Davis: Feels lingering effects
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (ankle) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice.

Davis briefly left this past Sunday's loss to the Vikings with an ankle injury but returned and finished the game. He's still hurting, and it looks like he'll take it easy to start the week. However, if Davis is still sidelined Thursday, there will be legitimate concern about his status for Sunday's matchup against the Buccaneers.

Lions' Jarrad Davis: Shakes off injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (ankle) returned to Sunday's game against the Vikings, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

Davis didn't miss much time, as he was evaluated on the sidelines near the end of the first quarter and was back on the field in the second frame.

Lions' Jarrad Davis: Gets hurt Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (ankle) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Vikings.

It's unclear how Davis picked up the ankle issue, but he was forced to exit the contest late in the first quarter. As long as Davis is sidelined, look for Jahlani Tavai to see a bump in snaps at the middle linebacker position.

Lions' Jarrad Davis: Logs sack in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis registered eight tackles (six solo) and a sack in Sunday's 19-16 loss to Washington.

The sack was just Davis' second of the year. He has posted solid tackle totals recently, tallying eight in three straight weeks.

Lions' Jarrad Davis: Makes seven tackles against Cowboys
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis registered seven tackles, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery during Sunday's 35-27 loss to the Cowboys.

Davis helped play a role in Detroit's strong effort to hold Ezekiel Elliott to 2.8 yards per carry, and he almost had a sack that he let slip away. However, his biggest play came early when he helped force an Elliott fumble -- equaling as many takeaways as the Lions defense had in its previous four games. Davis could again have a strong statistical showing in Week 12 against a Washington team that is running the ball at extremely high rates under interim head coach Bill Callahan.

Lions' Jarrad Davis: Stuffs stat sheet Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis recorded five tackles (three solo), one sack, a forced fumble and a pass defensed across 66 snaps in Sunday's win over the Giants.

Davis continues to make game-changing plays for the Lions this season. The third-year pro laid a pivotal hit on Daniel Jones early in the first quarter, which forced the rookie to throw a backwards pass that was scooped and scored by fellow linebacker Devon Kennard to give the Lions the early lead. Sunday also marked the first sack of the season for Davis.

Lions' Jarrad Davis: Injury scare Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis exited Sunday's win over the Eagles with a leg injury but returned, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

Following the contest, Davis said the injury was simply a scare, and he was able to walk on his own afterward. Nevertheless, the Lions likely will monitor Davis' practice status closely since he already missed the first two games of the year with a knee injury. Davis finished Sunday's game with six tackles (three solo) and a forced fumble.

Lions' Jarrad Davis: Ready to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Chris Burke of The Athletic reports.

Davis was limited in practice all week, but he appears to have recovered from the ankle injury that kept him sidelined Week 2. The 2017 first-round pick looks primed for his usual starting role versus Philadelphia on Sunday.

Lions' Jarrad Davis: Optimistic for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (ankle) has a "good shot" to play in Sunday's game against the Eagles, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Davis missed last week's game against the Chargers and, as evidenced by this news, is trending in the right direction. The 2017 first-round pick was limited in practice all week and will receive the official word on his status when inactives come out an hour and a half before game time.

Lions' Jarrad Davis: Questionable vs. Philly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Eagles.

Davis was limited in practice all week, so it's hard to tell exactly how healthy the linebacker is at this time while nursing a sprained ankle. He will likely end up being a game-time decision in Philadelphia this weekend.

Lions' Jarrad Davis: Limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (ankle) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Davis' participation Wednesday doesn't give much insight into the linebacker's health, as he has been limited in practice since the season started but has yet to play. There's been optimism that Davis could return this week from his sprained ankle, but more clarity on that may not come until later in the week.

Lions' Jarrad Davis: Could return for Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (ankle) could return for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Davis sprained his ankle in Detroit's third preseason game and wasn't available for either of the first two games of the regular season. Second-round rookie Jahlani Tavai started both in Davis' absence, while Jalen Reeves-Maybin logged roughly 50 percent of the defensive snaps as a backup. Since Davis should command his usual every-down role upon his return, both of the other LBs should see reduced roles if Davis returns for this weekend's game.

Lions' Jarrad Davis: Sitting out Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's Week 2 tilt against the Chargers.

The 23-year-old linebacker managed limited practice participation for a second straight week, but he'll have to wait until at least Week 3 to make his season debut. The Lions figure to slot in rookie Jahlani Tavai, who managed three tackles and a sack in Week 1, in Davis' place for the second straight week against the Chargers.

September 13, 2019 03:32 PM
Lions' Jarrad Davis: Limited all week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Chargers.

Davis was a limited participant in every practice this week, mimicking his injury report ahead of the season opener when he was ultimately ruled out. It's tough to tell whether he's trending up at this point, but the Lions will start Jahlani Tavai at middle linebacker again if Davis can't go.

September 12, 2019 04:12 PM
Lions' Jarrad Davis: Limited again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (ankle) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

Davis has been limited in practice all week due to an ankle injury that caused him to miss Detroit's season-opening loss to the Cardinals. He'll have one more chance to fully practice before Sunday's tilt against the Chargers.
