Lions' Kerry Hyder: Full participant to open camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hyder (Achilles) has been a full participant at the onset of training camp, Michael Rothstein of reports.

Considering Hyder was a full participant in the spring workouts, it shouldn't be a huge surprise that he's ready to go for fall camp. However, coach Matt Patricia suggested that he believes Hyder "just willed himself" to be available for the start of camp. Assuming he can remain healthy, the fourth-year pro will likely be counted on to provide a pass rush opposite Ezekiel Ansah (knee) after racking up eight sacks in 2016.

Lions' Kerry Hyder: Full participant in spring workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hyder (Achilles) has been a full participant in spring workouts, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Hyder, who came out of nowhere to notch eight sacks for the Lions in 2016, suffered an Achilles injury in the 2017 preseason opener that prevented him from taking the field at any point last year. Barring any setbacks, the fifth-year defensive end will push Anthony Zettel for the starting job opposite Ezekiel Ansah in advance of the 2018 campaign.

Lions' Kerry Hyder: Staying in Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hyder (Achilles) re-signed with the Lions on Saturday, Austin Knoblauch of reports.

Hyder missed the entire 2017-18 campaign after suffering a torn Achilles in Week 1 of the preseason, but recorded 36 tackles (23 solo), eight sacks and one pass defensed in 16 games during the 2016-17 season. The defensive end was slated to become an exclusive rights free agent this offseason. If he can make a healthy return this offseason, Hyder should contend for a starting role under new head coach Matt Patricia.

Lions' Kerry Hyder: In midst of rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hyder indicated Monday that he's "midway" through his rehab from a ruptured Achilles tendon and expects to be back to full strength for the start of the 2018 season, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports. "[The injury is] a small bump in the road on a long journey. I'm not even worried about it," Hyder said. "I'm looking forward to the 2018 season and I know I'm going to be back, better than ever."

Hyder was projected to start at defensive end opposite Ziggy Ansah in 2017 after breaking out for eight sacks the year prior, but his season came to an end in the Lions' first preseason contest after he sustained a non-contact injury. Though Hyder has yet to resume running four months since undergoing surgery to address the ruptured Achilles, he indicated that he would ramp up his activity in the "next couple weeks." It's unclear what kind of scheme the Lions will deploy in 2018 with the team bidding adieu to head coach Jim Caldwell, but Hyder's prior experience at defensive tackle should aid the new coaching staff's ability to find a role for him in a 4-3 or 3-4 base defense.
