Lions' Mike Ford: Out with possible concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford exited Sunday's game against the Panthers to be evaluated for a concussion.

Ford had one tackle before his exit was announced early in the second half. The 25-year-old will need to clear the concussion protocol before returning to the field if the concussion is confirmed.

Lions' Mike Ford: Back to full workload in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (hip) was a full practice participant Thursday after being limited Wednesday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

The Southeast Missouri State standout has made two appearances for the Lions thus far this season, with Week 9's workload of 17 special-teams snaps constituting his greatest involvement of the 2020 campaign. A leg injury kept Ford on injured reserve between Sept. 9 and Oct. 14, with a Week 7 appearance against the Falcons marking his season debut. Ford has yet to field a snap on the defensive side for Detroit this season, after registering a combined six starts at cornerback between 2018 and 2019.

Lions' Mike Ford: Shifts to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions activated Ford (leg) from injured reserve Saturday.

Ford has practiced for two weeks without a setback, and he'll return to the lineup Sunday against the Falcons. The 25-year-old cornerback is in line for his season debut, but due to the offseason reinforcements at the position, it's unlikely that Ford plays much on defense.

Lions' Mike Ford: Eligible to return from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (leg) returned to practice Wednesday, opening the 21-day window to remove him from IR.

Ford could play as soon as Week 6 against the Jaguars if he looks good in practice, but he will need to spend the entirety of the 2020 season on IR if the Lions opt not activate him within the next three weeks.

Lions' Mike Ford: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions placed Ford (leg) on injured reserve Sunday, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.

Ford suffered the leg injury during practice Aug. 28 and the injury appears serious. Ford could return during the season, but even if he returns, he'll likely stick to a special teams role for 2020.

Lions' Mike Ford: Suffers leg injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford left Friday's practice with an apparent leg injury, Justin Rogers of the Detroit News reports.

Ford will likely be a depth player again in 2020 after the Lions replaced Darius Slay with rookie first-round pick Jeff Okudah, Desmond Trufant and Darryl Roberts. Once Ford returns, he'll likely stick to special teams.

Lions' Mike Ford: Staying with Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford will remain with the Lions after the team placed a contract tender on the exclusive rights free agent Wednesday, Justin Rodgers of The Detroit News reports.

Ford played in a variety of situations for the Lions in 2019, logging 252 special-teams snaps and another 166 on defense. The 24-year-old produced 12 tackles (11 solo) and two pass breakups in 15 games. He'll likely reprise the same role in 2020 he held last season, should he make the final 53-man roster.

Lions' Mike Ford: Receives clean bill of health
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (shoulder) was able to practice Wednesday without any restrictions, Chris Burke of The Athletic reports.

Ford has made a full recovery from the shoulder injury that he suffered in the season finale against the Packers. The 23-year-old worked mainly as a cornerback in 2018, but he was also spotted working out at safety Wednesday. Ford's ability to capably play both secondary spots would help his case for sticking on the roster heading into Week 1.

Lions' Mike Ford: Enters offseason with hurt shoulder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford injured his shoulder during the fourth quarter of the Lions' season finale against the Packers, Tim Twentyman of the team's official site reports.

Ford wasn't signed to the active roster until 11 games into the season, but the undrafted rookie wound up playing a sizable role for Detroit down the stretch, seeing at least 47 defensive snaps in five of seven contests to end the year. He finishes with 25 tackles and one pass breakup in seven contests. Ford is under contract with the Lions for another season and will look to build upon his inaugural season stat line in 2019.

Lions' Mike Ford: Promoted from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions promoted Ford from their practice squad to the active roster Wednesday, Tim Twentyman of the team's official site reports.

Ford's spot on the 53-man roster comes following the placement of T.J. Lang (neck) on injured reserve. The undrafted rookie will serve a depth role in Detroit's secondary and is expected to receive most of his snaps on special teams.
