Lions' Tion Green: Inactive Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green (coach's decision) is inactive for Monday night's game against the Giants.

Green is nothing more than the No. 5 tailback on the depth chart and will likely need multiple injuries to players ahead of him in order to be a regular member of the game-day roster.

Lions' Tion Green: Earns spot on final roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green won the No. 5 job at running back, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

The Lions already knew Green could be an asset on special teams, but they were probably pleasantly surprised by his scintillating offensive performance in the preseason finale, where Green carried eight times for 63 yards and caught four passes for 87 yards and a score -- including a 74-yard catch and run in which Green broke multiple tackles before weaving his way into the painted area. However, as the No. 5 runner in Detroit, Green's at least a couple injuries away from gaining any fantasy relevance.

Lions' Tion Green: Makes final case for roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green notched eight carries for 63 yards and four catches for 87 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's preseason finale against Buffalo.

The undrafted rookie out of Cincinnati is hoping the Lions keep five running backs, as Ameer Abdullah, Theo Riddick, Dwayne Washington and Zach Zenner (undisclosed) are all seemingly locks to make the roster. Despite his impressive showing in Thursday's exhibition, Green seems more likely to land on the Lions' practice squad.

Lions' Tion Green: In three-man competition for roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green is in competition with Matt Asiata and Mike James for the Lions' possible No. 5 running back spot, Tim Twentyman of the team's official site reports.

The Lions have phased the fullback position out of their offense, which opens the door for the team to carry a fifth running back on the roster behind Ameer Abdullah, Theo Riddick (wrist), Zach Zenner and Dwayne Washington. The thick Green, who stands 6-foot, 230 pounds, went undrafted out of Cincinnati but was in consistent contact with Lions running backs coach David Walker months leading up to the draft due to Walker's belief of Green's fit in Detroit, according to Dave Birkett of The Detroit Free Press. While Green only ran for 743 yards and two touchdowns for the Bearcats last year, he played on most special teams units, from field-goal protection to punt coverage. His versatility likely separates him from Asiata and James, in addition to the fact the Lions would save a slightly higher sum of cash if they parted ways with the other two over him. However, if Green ultimately makes the team, he would likely be multiple injuries away from gaining fantasy relevance.
