Friday afternoon update: Golladay didn’t practice on Friday and is out, per The Athletic’s Chris Burke. His absence should help Quintez Cephus, Marvin Jones, T.J. Hockenson and D’Andre Swift see more work and become fantasy viable plays.
Friday update: Golladay won’t get much work in on Friday after missing Wednesday and Thursday practice. We’ll update when the official report comes out, but his status is not getting much better this week.
Kenny Golladay may do a little today, but sounds like he'll be very limited at best. No Joe Dahl either. So, Lions down two on the offensive line right now, in addition to Golladay. Not ideal.— kyle meinke (@kmeinke) September 18, 2020
Lions top receiver Kenny Golladay missed last week’s opener against the Bears due to a hamstring injury that popped up in practice. On Wednesday, he was seen at practice, but wasn’t “doing anything,” according to Kyle Meinke of MLive.
Without him on Sunday, Matthew Stafford threw for 297 yards on 42 attempts, completing 24 for one touchdown and one interception. Marvin Jones and rookie Quintez Cephus led the way at receiver, but slot receiver Danny Amendola did the most damage while tight end T.J. Hockenson found the end zone in their loss.
There’s no doubt the team needs his presence to help the offense run more efficiently. We’ll wait on his injury designation, but if this report turns out to be correct, he’ll get a did not practice. I would feel much more comfortable playing himagainst the Packers if he were to see a full practice on Friday.
