Lions Place Rookie Tight End T.J. Hockenson on Injured Reserve

The Lions have placed rookie tight end T.J. Hockenson on injured reserve according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.
Hockenson was spotted on crutches after the team’s loss to the Chicago Bears on Thanksgiving Day and later traded those crutches for a walking boot and a scooter after suffering an ankle injury.

Birkett reports that the rookie has been playing in pain for weeks and, with the Lions’ season essentially over, the decision was made to shut him down for the season.

The No.8-overall pick in the 2019 draft out of the University of Iowa, Hockenson stormed out of the gates by catching 6-of-9 targets for 131 yards and a touchdown in his Week 1 NFL debut but has struggled to see consistent targets since.

He will end his rookie season with 32 catches for 367 yards and two touchdowns in 12 games but has only exceeded 50 yards in one game since Week 1. The Lions will move forward with Jesse James and Logan Thomas as their top two tight ends.

Lions Place QB Jeff Driskel on Injured Reserve

The Lions already have lost starting quarterback Matthew Stafford with fractures in his back, and now his backup is also going to be lost as the team Saturday put backup Jeff Driskel on injured reserve.

The team did have Driskel as the backup in Thursday’s home loss on Thanksgiving to the Chicago Bears. He didn’t start due to what the team said was a hamstring injury.

David Blough will remain as the Lions starter until Stafford has sufficiently recovered from fractures in his back.

Driskel only averaged 6.5 yards per pass in his three starts but did show some juice as a scrambler, which should keep him in the backup mix for the next few seasons.

The Lions also signed QB Kyle Sloter off the Arizona Cardinals’ practice squad. Sloter will backup Blough in Week 14.
