Kenny Golladay: Officially out for Week 17

Lions interim head coach Darrell Bevell ruled Golladay (hip) out for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.

Analysis: The announcement comes as no surprise, given that the Lions are eliminated from playoff contention along with the fact that Golladay hasn't practiced in any capacity since Week 12. Golladay thus concludes the 2020 season with 20 receptions on 32 targets for 338 yards and two touchdowns across his eight appearances, but the disappointing, injury-plagued campaign shouldn't prevent him from earning a hefty pay raise this offseason. Though Detroit may be reluctant to give the wideout the long-term contract extension he's seeking, he would be a strong candidate to receive the Lions' franchise tag, which would net him a one-year deal worth no less than the average of the top five highest-salaried players at his position.

Kenny Golladay: Not yet practicing

Golladay (hip) won't participate in Thursday's practice, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

Analysis: Golladay hasn't played since Week 8 and hasn't practiced in any capacity since Week 12, making it a longshot for him to gain clearance for Sunday's season finale versus the Vikings. Unless Golladay makes a surprise appearance on the practice field Friday, he'll likely be ruled out for the game when the Lions release their final Week 17 injury report.

Kenny Golladay: Still sidelined

Golladay (hip) won't practice Wednesday, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

Analysis: Though Golladay hasn't played since Week 8, the Lions have thus far elected not to place the wideout on IR. Golladay's continued absence from practice Wednesday, however, doesn't bode well for his chances of returning to game action in Week 17 against the Vikings.

Kenny Golladay: Sitting out again Saturday

Golladay (hip) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Buccaneers, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Analysis: After yet another week with no practice reps, the Lions did the expected and will make Golladay inactive this weekend, marking his eighth straight contest on the sideline. He'll have one more chance to get back on the field this season on Sunday, Jan. 3 against the Vikings.

Kenny Golladay: Another DNP on Wednesday

Golladay (hip) was held out of practice Wednesday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Analysis: Tuesday's practice report was an estimate, so Golladay's lack of activity Wednesday is more indicative of his current level of health. That is, he doesn't seem to have made any recognizable progress through the hip injury that has kept him off the practice field since Week 12. The Lions haven't hinted yet that Golladay may be shut down for the final two contests, but with no playoff berth to play for, it could be just a matter of time.

December 23, 2020 2:52 PM EST

Kenny Golladay: No practice to begin Week 16

Golladay (hip) didn't participate in Tuesday's practice.

Analysis: Given that Golladay hasn't practiced in any capacity since Week 12 along with the fact that the 5-9 Lions have been eliminated from the postseason, he looks increasingly likely to be shut down for the season. The Lions will take a week-to-week approach with Golladay for now, but at this stage, the wideout appears to have slim odds of suiting up Saturday against the Buccaneers.

December 22, 2020 1:50 PM EST

Kenny Golladay: Won't play this week

Golladay (hip) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Titans.

Analysis: Interim coach Darrell Bevell admitted Friday that the Lions may soon discuss shutting down Golladay for the rest of the season. The team hasn't technically been eliminated from the playoffs, but that should be coming soon enough. Golladay hasn't played in a game since Week 8 and hasn't logged any level of practice participation since Week 12.

December 18, 2020 12:42 PM EST

Kenny Golladay: Chance to be shut down

Coach Darrell Bevell said Friday, "I think that's a conversation that's coming" regarding Golladay (hip) being shut down for the season, Chris Burke of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: The 27-year-old has yet to be officially ruled out for Sunday's game at Tennessee, though those comments are a pretty clear indication he won't be available. Golladay hasn't seen the field since Week 8 due to the hip injury and hasn't practiced in nearly a month, so it's not much of a surprise the Lions are considering shutting things down with only a few weeks left in the regular season. Marvin Jones, Mohamed Sanu and Danny Amendola should continue leading Detroit's receiving corps down the stretch.

December 18, 2020 7:56 AM EST

Kenny Golladay: Doesn't practice Thursday

Golladay (hip) was a non-participant at Thursday's practice.

Analysis: Golladay's inability to participate in the portion of practice open to the media ultimately forecast his absence Thursday. In fact, he hasn't taken the practice field in any capacity since Week 12. At this point, Golladay seems on a path to his seventh absence in a row Sunday at Tennessee, which would set up Marvin Jones, Mohamed Sanu, Danny Amendola and Quintez Cephus for elevated roles.

Kenny Golladay: Spectating at practice

Golladay (hip) didn't participate in drills during the portion of Thursday's practice that was open to the media, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Golladay hasn't practiced on even a limited basis since Week 12, and at this point, the wideout is looking like a potential shutdown candidate for a 5-8 Lions squad that could soon be eliminated from playoff contention. At the very least, Golladay looks on track to miss Sunday's game against the Titans, which would mark his sixth straight absence. Expect the Lions to make an official call on Golladay's Week 15 status following Friday's practice.

December 17, 2020 9:58 AM EST

Kenny Golladay: Not practicing Wednesday

Golladay (hip) won't practice Wednesday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Analysis: Golladay, who last suited up for a game back in Week 8, thus remains iffy as Sunday's game against the Titans approaches. If he remains sidelined this weekend, Quintez Cephus and Mohamed Sanu would be in line to continue split wideout snaps across from Marvin Jones, while Danny Amendola handles slot duties.

December 16, 2020 8:21 AM EST

Kenny Golladay: Ruled out again

Golladay (hip) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Packers, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Analysis: Interim coach mentioned the possibility of Golladay having a limited role in Sunday's game if he looked good at Friday's practice. However, Golladay was listed as a non-participant, just as he had been each of the last five Fridays. He's now set to miss a sixth consecutive game, leaving Marvin Jones and TJ Hockenson as Matthew Stafford's top pass catchers. Last week, Quintez Cephus and Mohamed Sanu split the wideout snaps across from Marvin Jones, while Danny Amendola handled his familiar role in the slot.

December 11, 2020 12:52 PM EST

Kenny Golladay: May be limited if available

Coach Darrell Bevell said Golladay (hip) could have a limited role Sunday against the Packers depending how he looks in practice Friday, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: It remains unclear if the 27-year-old will participate at Friday's practice, so he could end up being ruled out for a sixth straight game. Even if he's available Week 14, Golladay appears unlikely to be 100 percent, which would make him a risky fantasy option. If he's unable to play, Marvin Jones, Danny Amendola and Mohamed Sanu would continue to lead the receiving corps.

December 11, 2020 7:59 AM EST

Kenny Golladay: Still not practicing

Golladay (hip) did not practice Thursday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Analysis: Golladay appears to be trending toward a sixth straight absence, though he will have one more opportunity to resume practicing prior to Sunday's divisional matchup against the Packers. Marvin Jones, Danny Amendola, Quintez Cephus and Mohamed Sanu will headline Detroit's wide receiving corps once again if Golladay can't go.

December 10, 2020 1:21 PM EST

Kenny Golladay: Not practicing Wednesday

Golladay (hip) won't practice Wednesday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Analysis: Kyle Meinke of MLive.com previously reported that the wideout was spotted doing sprints in the end zone before the Lions' Week 13 win over the Bears. That said, the fact that Golladay -- who last suited up in Week 8 -- isn't practicing Wednesday doesn't bode well for his chances of returning to action Sunday against the Packers.

December 9, 2020 9:00 AM EST

Kenny Golladay: Seen sprinting Sunday

Golladay (hip), who won't play Sunday in Chicago, was spotted doing sprints in the end zone pregame, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

Analysis: Golladay will log his fifth DNP in row Sunday -- and seventh overall this season -- but the aforementioned activity is a sign that he's drawing close to a return. In the five games in which he's been active this season, he's averaged 6.4 targets per game on his way to a 20-338-2 line. On Sunday, though, the Lions will go with Marvin Jones, Danny Amendola, Quintez Cephus and Mohamed Sanu at wide receiver.

December 6, 2020 8:14 AM EST

Kenny Golladay: Won't return Week 13

Golladay (hip) has been ruled out for Sunday's contest at Chicago, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Analysis: After failing to get on the practice field this week, Golladay will miss his fifth consecutive game as a result of a hip injury. Without its No. 1 wide receiver, the Lions will turn to Marvin Jones, Danny Amendola and Marvin Hall to fuel the passing attack.

December 4, 2020 12:42 PM EST

Kenny Golladay: Still no activity at practice

Golladay (hip) didn't take part in practice Thursday, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.

Analysis: Golladay gave a glimmer of hope that he was inching toward a return when he logged a limited practice on Nov. 23. Since then, though, he hasn't got on the field at all for five consecutive sessions. Clearly, Golladay's hip injury is a hindrance and may force a fifth DNP in a row Sunday at Chicago. If that comes to pass, Marvin Jones, Danny Amendola (hip) and Marvin Hall are set to be the leading wide receivers for the Lions.

December 3, 2020 2:17 PM EST

Kenny Golladay: Absent for another practice

Golladay (hip) wasn't in attendance for Thursday's practice and looks set to go down as a non-participant on the Lions' official report, aKyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

Analysis: Since being listed as a limited participant on Detroit's estimated practice report Nov. 23, Golladay hasn't logged any activity in any of the team's subsequent four sessions. The wideout thus appears to have taken a step back in his recovery from the hip injury that has sidelined him for four consecutive games. Unless Golladay returns to the field in some capacity Friday, he won't have much hope of being available for this weekend's game in Chicago.

December 3, 2020 10:08 AM EST

Kenny Golladay: Not practicing Wednesday

Golladay (hip) won't practice Wednesday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Analysis: Golladay, who last suited up in Week 8, still has two more chances to practice this week, but his absence from Wednesday's session isn't a great sign with regard to his Week 13 availability. We'll revisit the wideout's status no later than Thursday, once the Lions' second practice report of the week is filed.
