Lions' Jamal Agnew: Won't play Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Agnew (ankle) is officially inactive for Sunday's game versus Minnesota.

Agnew will miss his third consecutive contest while tending to the ankle issue, despite working as a full practice participant Friday. With the 24-year-old suprisingly sidelined, Ty Johnson and Danny Amendola should assume return duties, with Rashaan Melvin operating as the team's No. 3 cornerback for Week 14.

Lions' Jamal Agnew: Questionable Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Agnew (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game at Minnesota, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Agnew missed the last two games with the ankle injury, but he appears on track to return after working as a full practice participant Friday. Assuming the 24-year-old is able to suit up, he should reclaim his role as the team's primary kick and punt returner.

Lions' Jamal Agnew: Will miss second straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Agnew (ankle) is ruled out for Thursday's matchup against the Bears.

Agnew didn't practice for the second straight week, so he'll look to leverage the "mini-bye" from playing on the weekday to get healthy for Week 14's clash against the Vikings. The third-year pro is mainly used as a kick returner, so the Lions may deploy Ty Johnson to fill that role in Agnew's place.

Lions' Jamal Agnew: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Agnew (ankle) is ruled out for Sunday's contest against Washington.

Agnew suffered an ankle injury during Week 11's loss to the Cowboys. He didn't practice in any capacity this week. As long as Agnew is unable to play, expect Marvin Hall to field kick and punt returns.

Lions' Jamal Agnew: Gets hurt Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Agnew (ankle) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

It's unclear how Agnew picked up the injury, but he was forced to leave the game late in the fourth quarter. As long as he's sidelined, look for Marvin Hall to take over kick and punt return duties. It's likely Agnew won't return, so look for an update on the injury following the game or in the coming days.

Lions' Jamal Agnew: Takes kickoff to the house
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Agnew returned one kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown as well as one punt for 24 yards during Sunday's 27-24 victory over Philadelphia.

Agnew is the first player to return a kickoff for a touchdown in 2019, and his performance was especially encouraging for the Lions given Agnew's otherwise rough start to the season. While he's still not seeing enough playing time on defense to warrant IDP consideration, Agnew remains a valuable asset in formats that reward points for all-purpose yards.

Lions' Jamal Agnew: Showing well on defense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Agnew performed well as the top inside cornerback during minicamp, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

With Justin Coleman (undisclosed) sitting out of team drills, Agnew worked as the top slot corner in sub-package defenses. He apparently looked good doing it, too, as Agnew reportedly made one of the most impressive plays of minicamp defending a pass intended for Brandon Powell in team drills. It's unlikely he'll continue serving in this capacity once Coleman presumably returns for training camp, but there at least seems potential for Agnew to attain IDP relevance if he ever gets the opportunity to work opposite shutdown cornerback Darius Slay. He'll have plenty of value as a return man, regardless.

Lions' Jamal Agnew: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Agnew (knee) was downgraded from questionable to out for Sunday's game at Green Bay.

Agnew was a limited practice participant this week to earn the questionable tag but won't be available for Week 17. The 23-year-old was activated off injured reserve last week after missing nine games as he partially tore a ligament in his knee. It remains unclear if Agnew aggravated that injury or is dealing with a new issue, but he'll nonetheless be sidelined for the season finale.

December 28, 2018 05:24 PM
Lions' Jamal Agnew: Officially considered questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Agnew (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

Agnew was a limited participant in practice all week. If Agnew were to sit out versus the Packers in Week 17, TJ Jones would serve as Detroit's top kick and punt returner.

Lions' Jamal Agnew: Returning after nine-week absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Agnew (knee) is active for Sunday's game versus the Vikings, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Agnew spent time on injured reserve this season but will return form his nine-game absence. With Teez Tabor (coach's decision) inactive for the contest, Agnew could be leaned on immediately in the secondary. Agnew could also return to both kick and punt return duties.

December 21, 2018 03:48 PM
Lions' Jamal Agnew: Questionable Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Agnew (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against Minnesota.

Agnew was activated off injured reserve Wednesday and was a limited practice participant. The 23-year-old missed more than two months with the knee injury, so the likelihood of him playing Sunday remains up in the air.

Lions' Jamal Agnew: Elevated to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Agnew (knee) was activated from injured reserve Wednesday.

Despite falling out of playoff contention after last Sunday's loss to the Bills, the Lions will nonetheless follow through with bringing Agnew back to the roster three weeks after designating the 2017 All-Pro return specialist for a return from IR. For someone who has only played five full games on the defensive side of the ball, these final two contests of 2018 should give Agnew valuable opportunities to develop as a cornerback. It's also possible that the second-year pro sees light usage on gadget plays for a Detroit offense lacking in play-making talent. Agnew was already given the chance to rush the ball once this season, racking up 17 yards on a Week 5 carry.

Lions' Jamal Agnew: Returns to practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Agnew (knee) will return to practice Wednesday, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

Agnew partially tore a ligament in his knee against Green Bay in October. The Lions have a 21-day window to activate the slot cornerback, but he isn't eligible to play until Week 15 against the Bills, since players placed on injured reserve must stay there for at least eight weeks. Regardless, Agnew's return to practice Wednesday is a good sign, and he could provide a boost on defense and special teams if he were to return for the final three games.

Lions' Jamal Agnew: Headed to injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions intend to place Agnew on injured reserve this week after he suffered a knee injury in the team's Week 5 win over the Packers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

While Agnew's injury is significant enough to sideline him for the next eight weeks, Schefter relays that the All-Pro return man could be a candidate to return from injured reserve later in the season if the Lions are still in the mix for a playoff spot. Agnew has also seen his role grow at defensive back this season, but his absence will be most acutely felt on special teams. TJ Jones, Ameer Abdullah, Kerryon Johnson and Brandon Powell are all candidates to fill in for Agnew on kickoff and/or punt returns.

Lions' Jamal Agnew: Suffers serious injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Agnew will be out for an extended period of time due to a knee injury he suffered in Sunday's game against the Packers, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Agnew originally failed to return after he exited Sunday's game against the Packers in the fourth quarter. Though the amount of time remains undetermined, Agnew's injury is considered "long-term." Ameer Abdullah could see reps as the Lions' top punt returner during Agnew's absence.

October 7, 2018 04:16 PM
Lions' Jamal Agnew: Exits game with knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Agnew is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Packers, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

Agnew exited Sunday's game during the fourth quarter, and will not return. Ameer Abdullah could serve as the Lions' top punt returner as long as Agnew remains sidelined.

Lions' Jamal Agnew: First-team All-Pro as rookie
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Agnew logged 10 tackles, 18 yards on two receptions, nine yards on two carries, 196 yards on 11 kick returns, and 447 yards with two touchdowns on 29 punt returns over 13 games in 2017.

Agnew, a fifth-rounder out of the University of San Diego, did a little bit of everything his rookie season but made his name as a return specialist, where he was ultimately named a first-team All-Pro. He led the league in punt return yards, punt return touchdowns and punt return average (15.4). He isn't in the fantasy conversation in IDP formats or otherwise yet, but that could change if he somehow carves out a larger role on either side of the ball.

December 12, 2017 11:36 PM
Lions' Jamal Agnew: Full practice Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Agnew (knee) was a full participant in practice Tuesday.

The rookie return specialist will take the field this week after missing the past three games due to a knee injury. Agnew has carved out a role on special teams and offense this season and leads the league with two return touchdowns. Look for the Lions to utilize the jack-of-all-trades weapon Saturday when they face the Bears.

December 10, 2017 12:13 PM
Lions' Jamal Agnew: Inactive Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Agnew (knee) is inactive for Sunday's contest against Tampa Bay.

Agnew was considered questionable for Sunday's game after being limited in practice throughout the week, but it appears as though he isn't fully recovered from his knee injury that's forced him to miss the past few weeks. Since he's just a depth secondary and special teams player, Agnew's absence shouldn't impact the Detroit defense greatly.

December 1, 2017 03:32 PM
Lions' Jamal Agnew: Absence continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Agnew (knee) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Ravens.

Agnew hasn't practiced since injuring his knee two weeks ago. However, ESPN's Michael Rothstein spotted the return specialist running on the sidelines during Wednesday's session, so Agnew seems to have a realistic chance of making it back for the Lions' Week 14 matchup with the Bucs. In the meantime, Detroit has Golden Tate and TJ Jones available to handle punt returns, with Ameer Abdullah and Dwayne Washington presumably handling kickoffs.
