Detroit Lions quarterback Nate Sudfeld (knee) suffered a torn ACL in the third quarter of the preseason finale on Friday night against the Carolina Panthers, according to sources. Sudfeld will now be forced to miss the entire 2023 season. It's a hit to Detroit's QB depth behind Jared Goff, especially with rookie Hendon Hooker (knee) taking a redshirt year in 2023. As things currently stand on Detroit's roster, Teddy Bridgewater will be Goff's primary backup, with only undrafted rookie Adrian Martinez behind him. The Lions will most likely add another body to the QB room before the start of the regular season in two weeks.

Detroit Lions quarterback Nate Sudfeld completed nine of his 18 passing attempts for 80 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the preseason loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. The 29-year-old threw the team's only touchdown of the game. Sudfeld might be on the team's roster to begin the season after the NFL implemented a rule to allow teams to carry a third quarterback and go over 53 roster spots, but he might be released when Hendon Hooker (torn ACL) is cleared to practice and play.
