Lions' Nick Bawden: Shut down for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bawden (knee) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.

Bawden's season is over after he suffered a knee injury during this past Sunday's loss to the Cowboys. The second-year fullback averaged 12.7 offensive snaps per game this year, catching four of six targets for 17 yards. The Lions don't have another fullback on their active or practice rosters, so they may choose to fill the void via a free agent.

Lions' Nick Bawden: Done for day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bawden (knee) won't return to Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Bawden left the game late in the second quarter and, as evidenced by this news, the issue will keep him out of the remainder of the game. The team is without another healthy fullback on the roster, so it's unclear how they'll operate going forward.

Lions' Nick Bawden: Suffers injury Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bawden (knee) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Bawden popped up on the injury report with a foot injury Saturday, but, as evidenced by this news, seems to be dealing with a new issue. The 2018 seventh-round pick is the team's only fullback on the roster, so it's unclear how the offense will approach things while Bawden is sidelined.

Lions' Nick Bawden: Ready to roll
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bawden (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Bawden popped up on the injury report with a questionable tag Saturday, but it won't keep him out of the game. The second-year pro is the team's only fullback, and he'll pave the way for Ty Johnson and J.D. McKissic.

Lions' Nick Bawden: Now questionable for Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bawden (foot) has been added to the Lions' injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Bawden is the only fullback on the Lions' roster, so they would presumably go with more single-back formations should he ultimately be unable to go. Clarity on his status will come closer to Sunday's kickoff.

Lions' Nick Bawden: Still without a carry in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bawden logged 16 offensive snaps during Sunday's 31-26 victory over the Giants.

Bawden shook off a back injury to play in Week 7 against Minnesota and then worked through a foot injury to play Sunday against New York. However, he didn't handle any offensive touches despite the absence of Kerryon Johnson (knee). If he wasn't a factor this week, it seems unlikely that the fullback will ever get many opportunities to make a dent in the stat sheet.

Lions' Nick Bawden: Suiting up against Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bawden (foot) is active Week 8 against the Giants.

Bawden overcame a back injury to take the field last week, but it was a foot issue that limited his practice time in advance of the home matchup against New York. The only difference for Bawden this week is he'll be blocking for the likes of Ty Johnson and J.D. McKissic, who will be taking on running back duties after Kerryon Johnson (knee) was placed on IR.

Lions' Nick Bawden: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bawden (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Bawden began the week not practicing but progressed to full participation Friday and appears on track to play Week 8, despite the questionable tag. The 23-year-old has yet to receive a carry this year while catching three of five targets for 14 yards in six games.

Lions' Nick Bawden: Practices in limited fashion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bawden (foot) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Bawden was unable to practice Wednesday, so Thursday's limited session is a step in the right direction. He'll have one more chance to upgrade to a full practice session ahead of Sunday's tilt against the Giants.

Lions' Nick Bawden: Season low in playing time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bawden logged seven offensive snaps during Sunday's 42-30 loss to Minnesota.

Bawden popped up on the injury report last week due to a back issue. While the fullback was active, this was his lowest amount of playing time all season and just the second time all year he wasn't targeted in the passing game. Bawden isn't much of a statistical contributor anyway, but his full availability could become even more important if Kerryon Johnson (knee) is forced to miss any games.

Lions' Nick Bawden: Suiting up Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bawden (back) is active Week 7 against Minnesota.

Bawden logged a regular snap count Week 6 against Green Bay but was added to the injury report this week with a back issue. It won't be enough to keep the fullback from suiting up for his regular role, which is equally balanced between offense and special teams. The rookie has yet to record a carry all season but has registered three receptions.

Lions' Nick Bawden: Questionable versus Vikings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bawden (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Bawden appeared on Friday's injury report as a limited participant in practice. He seems to have suffered a back injury mid-week. If Bawden is unable to go Week 7, the Lions will have to make due without a healthy fullback on the roster.

Lions' Nick Bawden: Catches first pass of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bawden caught his only target for a 10-yard gain during Sunday's 27-24 victory over the Eagles.

Bawden continues to a be a low-usage offensive weapon, but he flashed his athleticism on his lone opportunity Sunday by catching a short pass and hurdling Eagles safety Rodney McLeod to get Detroit into the red zone.

Lions' Nick Bawden: One target in season opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bawden was targeted once but did not record a catch during Sunday's 27-27 tie with the Cardinals.

Bawden logged a quarter of the offensive snaps and over 70 percent of available special-teams snaps, but he simply isn't in a role that will allow for consistent offensive production.

Lions' Nick Bawden: Available for preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bawden logged snaps on special teams during Thursday's preseason opener against the Patriots, Chris Burke of the Athletic reports.

Bawden missed the entire 2018 season due to a torn ACL and was thought to be a candidate for the regular-season PUP list. However, he's seemingly progressed faster than originally thought, and his availability for Thursday's exhibition game all but confirms that he's good to go moving forward.

Lions' Nick Bawden: Candidate for PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bawden (knee) is a candidate to open the regular season on the Physically Unable to Perform list, Chris Burke of The Athletic reports.

Bawden has yet to practice fully since tearing his ACL last July. Detroit is going to have some tough choices to make in the backfield when the time comes to make roster cuts in early September. If Bawden isn't fully ready to go by that time, the Lions could stash him on the PUP list as a means of buying time to make a decision on his roster status. Beyond starting running back Kerryon Johnson and backup C.J. Anderson, there seems to be three other options (Theo Riddick, Zach Zenner, Ty Johnson) competing with Bawden for what will likely amount to two backfield spots.

Lions' Nick Bawden: Sits out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bawden (knee) didn't participate in Thursday's practice, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Bawden is still recovering from a torn ACL that kept him on injured reserve all of last season. The 2018 seventh-rounder missed OTAs as well as the team's minicamp. It's unclear if Bawden will be good to go come training camp in late July, but for now, he's the only fullback on the Lions' roster.

Lions' Nick Bawden: Remains in recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bawden (knee) isn't participating in the opening week of OTAs, Chris Burke of The Athletic reports.

Bawden is recovering from a torn ACL that kept him on injured reserve for the entire 2018 season. Running back Mark Thompson, tight end Logan Thomas and tight end Jerome Cunningham filled in at fullback in Bawden's absence Tuesday.
