Lions' Brandon Copeland: Reverts back to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Copeland (pectoral) was reverted back to the Lions' injured reserve Thursday after clearing waivers.

Copeland was ruled out for the season after tearing his pectoral muscle, and he'll now spend the 2017 on injured reserve as a result. Copeland served as a key special teams player for the Lions in 2016.

Lions' Kenny Golladay: Back with second unit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Golladay was back with the second-team offense at Thursday's practice as TJ Jones rejoined the starters, Dave Birkett of The Detroit Free Press reports.

The No. 3 receiver battle looms large for Detroit's offense, as the decision between Golladay and Jones also has major implications for Golden Tate's role. Tate plays the slot when Golladay joins the starters in three-wide sets, while Jones often handles the slot work when he's the one getting first-teams snaps. The Lions ultimately may opt to mix and match the rookie and the veteran, taking advantage of Golladay's size in certain situations (including the red zone) and Jones' knowledge of the offense in others.

Lions' Michael Roberts: Dealing with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roberts is dealing with an undisclosed injury that has limited him at practice, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Roberts has been dealing with an unknown injury and it isn't clear when he'll be back to full health. In what is a crowded position on the team, Roberts will need to return soon if he wants to see much play time in the regular season.

Lions' Khari Lee: Unavailable for Wednesday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

The reason behind Lee's absence Wednesday wasn't revealed, but he joined Eric Ebron, Cole Wick and Tim Wright on the sidelines for the session. Given his positioning on the depth chart, a swift return to practice would certainly benefit him.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright sat out Wednesday's practice with an undisclosed injury, Mike Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

Wright joined injured fellow tight ends Eric Ebron (hamstring) and Cole Wick (undisclosed) on the sideline. The Rutgers product is competing with Wick, Darren Fells, and rookie Michael Roberts to back up presumed starter Ebron.
