Kenny Golladay could be shut down for the season sooner than later

Kenny Golladay looks iffy to play in Week 15 after missing the first day of practice.

Friday status update: The Lions have ruled Golladay out for Week 15.

Friday update: Head coach Darrell Bevell said a conversation is coming soon as to whether or not to simply shut Golladay down for the rest of the season, per Chris Burke. It’s safe to say fantasy managers should not expect Golladay back for the rest of the fantasy playoff season.

Thursday update: Golladay will not practice on Thursday, per Kyle Meinke. His chances of playing on Sunday are incredibly slim at this point.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay will not practice on Wednesday, per The Athletic’s Chris Burke. There appeared to be some hope that he might practice last Friday, but that didn’t happen and he continues to be out with a hip injury. In hindsight they should have put him on injured reserve, but they must have felt he had a chance to return much sooner than he has.

Golladay has now been out since Week 8 with no practice or any tangible signs of returning to the field. With the Lions out of playoff contention, Golladay will need to be 100 percent before returning and even then it might be tough to trust him, especially if Chase Daniel is in at quarterback.

Marvin Jones and T.J. Hockenson will continue to be the only receivers in Detroit worth a fantasy play. This week they do get a good matchup with the Titans, but Malcolm Butler could take Jones out of the game if he shadows.
