49ers' Kerry Hyder: Headed to Bay Area
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hyder signed a one-year deal with the 49ers on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The 28-year-old suited up in all 16 games for the Cowboys last season, collecting 17 tackles (10 solo), one sack and a fumble recovery. Hyder will likely fill a rotational role for the 49ers heading into the 2020 season.

Cowboys' Kerry Hyder: Limited role in win over Fins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hyder logged 32 snaps Sunday and finished with a pair of tackles, including a half-sack.

Hyder continues to occupy a niche role along the Cowboys defensive line but is making the most of opportunities granted to him. The 28-year-old defensive end will continue to be a situational substitute in Dallas, limiting his value in IDP formats.

Cowboys' Kerry Hyder: Two sacks against Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hyder recorded two sacks in Saturday's preseason win over the Texans.

Even without DeMarcus Lawrence (shoulder) or Robert Quinn (hand/suspension) in the lineup, Dallas' defensive line dominated in the trenches all night, sacking Houston quarterbacks eight times in total, with Hyder tying Taco Charlton for the team lead. The former Lion does have an eight-sack season on his resume from 2016, but Hyder likely won't make this kind of impact during the regular season, instead giving the Cowboys some depth and flexibility with his ability to create pressure from either the outside or inside.

Cowboys' Kerry Hyder: Inks deal with Cowboys
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hyder signed a contract with the Cowboys on Monday, Rob Phillips of the team's official site reports.

Hyder has appeared in 24 games (two starts) in his NFL career, accumulating 42 tackles and nine sacks in that time. He'll provide valuable depth at defensive end for the Cowboys with Randy Gregory serving an indefinite NFL suspension.

Lions' Kerry Hyder: Will not be tendered
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hyder isn't expected to be tendered a contract by the Lions, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Hyder is a restricted free agent but would become an unrestricted free agent March 13 if the team doesn't extend an offer. After posting a career-high eight sacks in 2016, Hyder missed the entire 2017 season due to a ruptured Achilles and made only six tackles and one sack across seven games in 2018.

Lions' Kerry Hyder: One sack in comeback season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hyder recorded six tackles and one sack in seven games during the 2018 season.

After missing the entire 2017 season due to a ruptured Achilles, Hyder played sparingly after logging a season-high 45 snaps in the season-opening blowout loss to the Jets. It isn't clear if he's lost a step following the explosiveness-sapping nature of the injury he's recovery from, but Hyder could still be counted on more in 2019 if the team isn't able to satisfy the contract demands of defensive end Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder).

Lions' Kerry Hyder: Recovered from illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hyder (illness) was not listed on Wednesday's injury report, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Hyder was a late scratch for Sunday's win over the Cardinals due to the illness. The 27-year-old should resume his rotational role at defensive end for the Lions.

Lions' Kerry Hyder: Sitting out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hyder has an illness and is inactive for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Kyle Meinke of reports.

Hyder never appeared on the injury report this week, so the undisclosed illness appears to be a new development. Eric Lee could see an increased role as a rotational defensive end at Arizona on Sunday.

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 campaign after suffering a torn Achilles in Week 1 of the preseason, but he recorded 36 tackles (23 solo), eight sacks and one pass defensed in 16 games the season prior. The defensive end was slated to become an exclusive-rights free agent this offseason. If he can regain full health, 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.

Lions' Kerry Hyder: Placed on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hyder (Achilles) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

This was virtually inevitable, as Hyder had already been ruled out for the season with a torn Achilles. It'll be interesting to see if Detroit management adds a veteran pass rusher during roster cuts later this month in order provide more depth at the position, as the Lions otherwise will be left with a rather uninspiring group of defensive ends to help replace Hyder.

Lions' Kerry Hyder: Out for season with torn Achilles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hyder was ruled out for the season Monday with a torn Achilles, Conor Orr of reports.

The Lions were bracing for the worst after Hyder went down with the Achilles injury in Sunday's preseason opener, and a follow-up MRI has seemingly confirmed the team's fears. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Hyder will undergo surgery this week and begin rehabbing immediately in preparation for a return to full health during training camp in 2018.

Lions' Kerry Hyder: Suffers 'significant' Achilles injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Jim Caldwell said Hyder suffered a "significant" Achilles injury.

This is an unfortunate development for the Lions, as Hyder led the team with eight sacks in 2016 and was expected to be a strong bookend to Ziggy Ansah (undisclosed) this season. Further testing officially will determine the severity of Hyder's injury.

Lions' Kerry Hyder: Exits preseason opener with leg injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hyder left Sunday's preseason opener against the Colts with a leg injury, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Hyder appeared to be grabbing the back of his left leg after he went down Sunday and ultimately was carted off the field. His loss for any time in the regular season would be a significant blow to the Lions' pass rush.

Lions' Kerry Hyder: Signs ERFA tender
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hyder signed his exclusive-rights contract tender with the Lions on Monday, Dave Birkett of The Detroit Free Press reports.

In just his second season in the league, Hyder accrued a team-high eight sacks while finishing ninth in total tackles. However, despite this level of production, he could find himself in competition with Cornelius Washington and potentially a draft pick or two for the starting defensive end job opposite Ziggy Ansah this summer.

Lions' Kerry Hyder: Tendered by Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hyder, an exclusive rights free agent, was tendered by the Lions on Wednesday, The Detriot News reports.

The tender locks Hyder in at the veteran minimum salary for 2017, which represents a bargain for the Lions considering the Texas Tech product produced a team-leading eight sacks in 2016.

Lions' Kerry Hyder: Two sacks against Vikings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hyder recorded a pair of sacks and three tackles Sunday against the Vikings.

After going four games without a sack, Hyder broke out in a big way by getting to Sam Bradford twice. This was his second multi-sack effort of 2016, and he now has seven sacks on the year. As an interior lineman, he's a fantastic IDP option in leagues that require a defensive tackle to start.

Lions' Kerry Hyder: Notches two sacks in regular season opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hyder logged three tackles, including two sacks, in the Lions' 39-35 victory over the Browns on Sunday.

Following a three-sack performance in the team's preseason finale, Hyder clearly carried his momentum into the regular season. He isn't an overly-powerful player, nor quick, but has demonstrated a high motor and drew praise for his relentless effort from the Lions' coaching staff in the preseason. If he can work himself further into the rotation along Detroit's defensive line, and simply be given the opportunity to tally high tackle numbers, Hyder could develop into a legitimate IDP option over the course of the 2016 campaign.
