JUST IN: Key Lions player ruled out for Sunday vs. Seattle

Published

on

The Detroit Lions are set to host the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday at Ford Field, but they’ll have to do it without running back Theo Riddick. Detroit Lions beat writer Kyle Meinke tweeted minutes ago that Riddick has officially been ruled out for the game Sunday.

Meanwhile, Jarrod Davis and Ziggy Ansah have been listed as questionable. This marks the third consecutive week that Ansah has been limited in practice and his chances of playing are a toss-up.

Grading the Detroit Lions’ trade for DL Damon ‘Snacks’ Harrison

There is nothing better than waking up to a blockbuster trade that involves your favorite team.

That’s exactly what happened on Wednesday morning when I woke up to a tweet from Ian Rappoport reporting that the Detroit Lions the New York Giants for DL Damon Harrison.

So, how should Lions GM Bob Quinn be graded on this trade?

Let me begin by saying that I have never been more confident in handing out a grade than I am now. (Well, giving the Teez Tabor draft pick an F was pretty solid too)

By acquiring Harrison, Quinn was able to solidify the Lions’ biggest weakness, stopping the run. Harrison, who many refer to as “Snacks,” has led the NFL in run stops in each of the past three seasons and through Week 7 of this season, he is No. 2 in the league in that category.

But what makes this trade even better is that Harrison, who is 29-years-old, is currently signed through the 2020 season, which means this move not only helps the Lions now but also in the future.

Now, I know there is a .0000001% chance of this actually happening, but those players should be available when the Lions are on the clock in each round.
