  • Lions' Giovanni Manu: Passes physical, off NFI list

    The Lions activated Manu (undisclosed) from the active/non-football injury list Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Manu was placed on the Lions' active NFI list Sunday with an unspecified injury, but he passed his physical Wednesday and is eligible to participate in practice and preseason games. Manu, who played both left tackle and left guard at the University of British Columbia, was selected by Detroit in the fourth round of the 2024 NFL Draft, 126th overall.

  • Lions' Jameson Williams: Standing out early in camp

    Williams has been an early standout at Lions training camp practices, Jeff Seidel of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Teammates Amon-Ra St. Brown and David Montgomery both praised Williams after the first day of camp. Heading into his third NFL season, Williams looked to be locked in as the Lions' No. 2 receiver after Josh Reynolds left for Denver in free agency. The sky is the limit for the 2022 first-round wideout, playing in an offense that likes to throw the ball and has plenty of targets to go around. Williams is a popular 2024 breakout candidate in fantasy circles.

  • Lions' Marcus Davenport: Moves off PUP list

    The Lions removed Davenport (ankle) from their active/PUP list Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    After passing a physical Wednesday, it seems as if Davenport is finally starting to get past the ankle injury that limited him to just four games last season. The veteran linebacker inked a one-year deal with Detroit earlier in the offseason, and he's expected to serve as one of the team's top edge rushers in 2024.

  • Lions' Brian Branch: Comes off PUP list

    The Lions activated Branch (lower leg) off the active/PUP list Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Branch had a clean-up surgery on his lower leg earlier in the offseason, but he's now passed his physical and is ready to return to the field. The 2023 second-round pick out of Alabama had a great rookie campaign while posting 74 total tackles and 13 passes defended, including three interceptions, and he's expected to remain one of Detroit's top defensive backs in 2024.

  • Lions' Amik Robertson: Comes off NFI list

    The Lions removed Robertson (undisclosed) from the active/non-football injury list Wednesday.

  • Lions' Donovan Peoples-Jones: Gets activated Wednesday

    The Lions activated Peoples-Jones (undisclosed) off the active/non-football injury list Wednesday.

    Peoples-Jones didn't miss much of training camp before getting healthy, and he's now been cleared to join his teammates on the practice field. The 2020 sixth-round pick is coming off the worst season of his NFL career, having played just 72 offensive snaps in 2023 across eight appearances. He appears set to battle for a roster spot during training camp and the preseason.

  • Lions' Tre'Quan Smith: Shifts to NFI list

    The Lions placed Smith (undisclosed) on the active/non-football injury list Wednesday.

    There has been no report on the nature of Smith's injury or illness. The 28-year-old wideout appeared in just one game in 2023, playing 10 offensive snaps and failing to record a single stat. Once Smith returns to full health, he'll likely be competing for a depth role in Detroit's wide receiver room ahead of the team's 2024 campaign.

  • Lions' Amik Robertson: Moves to NFI list

    The Lions placed Robertson (undisclosed) on the active/non-football injury list Wednesday.

    As of now, the nature and severity of Robertson's injury remain unknown, but the Louisiana Tech product is still eligible to practice or play at any point throughout the preseason. The fifth-year veteran posted 50 total tackles and six passes defended in 2023, and once he returns to full health, he's expected to contribute as one of the Lions' top cornerbacks in his first year with the team.

Davis is entering his first season in Detroit after spending the last six years of his career in Tampa Bay, and he's expected to step in and immediately be a major contributor in the Lions' secondary.

  • Lions' Donovan Peoples-Jones: Starts camp on NFI list

    The Lions placed Peoples-Jones on the active/non-football injury list for the start of training camp Wednesday due to an unspecified injury or illness.

    Despite playing just 72 snaps on offense in his eight regular-season appearances with Detroit after he was traded from Cleveland at the end of October, Peoples-Jones re-signed with the Lions this offseason. Once healthy, Peoples-Jones presumably will need to fight for a roster spot.

  • Lions' DJ Reader: Gets put on PUP list

    Detroit placed Reader (quadriceps) on its active/PUP list Sunday, Tim Twentyman of the team's official site reports.

    As expected, Reader will begin training camp on the PUP list as he continues to recover from a torn quadriceps he picked up with the Bengals in the 2023 season. Coach Dan Campbell said that Reader would "take a minute" to be back in playing shape, so it's still unclear at this point whether he'll be active for Week 1.

  • Lions' Marcus Davenport: Starting camp on PUP list

    Detroit placed Davenport (ankle) on its active/PUP list Sunday, Tim Twentyman of the team's official site reports.

    Davenport played just four games during the 2023 season due to a high-ankle sprain, and it seems like he's still working to recover from that. Once he's healthy, he projects for a substantial role on the edge along with Aidan Hutchinson and John Cominsky.

  • Lions' Brian Branch: Goes to PUP list

    Detroit placed Branch (lower leg) on its active/PUP list Sunday, Tim Twentyman of the team's official site reports.

    Branch underwent an optional procedure during the offseason to clean up some damage to his ankle, and he's apparently still recovering from that as training camp gets underway. Coach Dan Campbell said in the spring that Branch would be ready to go in plenty of time for Week 1, but time is starting to run short on that.
