Lions' Khyri Thornton: Suspended six games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornton has been suspended for the first six games of the regular season for violating the league's substance abuse policy, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Thornton will be eligible to return to the active roster on Oct. 16, which happens to be the beginning of the Lions' bye week. The reserve defensive lineman took 307 snaps on defense last season, racking up 19 tackles and one sack through 13 contests. With Thornton sidelined, the Lions may opt to bring in another defensive tackle to bolster the depth chart behind starters Haloti Ngata and A'Shawn Robinson. Thornton is allowed to take part in offseason practices and preseason games.

Thronton was set to be a restricted free agent, but the Lions opted to re-sign him prior to free agency commencing. The defensive tackle recorded 13 tackles, a sack and a forced fumble in 13 games during the 2016 season. He projects to provide depth along the line heading into 2017.

Lions' Khyri Thornton: Inactive Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornton (coach's decision) is inactive for Monday's game against Dallas.

Thornton missed practice on Thursday due to illness but was able to participate in full on Friday and Saturday. With every defensive lineman healthy this week, Thornton was simply the odd man out at the bottom of the depth chart. He'll have a chance at playing next week against the Packers with the division title on the line.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornton (foot) is listed as inactive Thursday against the Vikings.

Missing his first game of the season, the quick turnaround for the Lions' annual Thanksgiving showdown was likely the impetus for this decision. Thornton's allottment of snaps will likely be split between A'Shawn Robinson and Stefan Charles.
