    Theo Riddick Suffers Rib Injury In Week 17

    Sunday, December 31, 2:59 PM

    Detroit Lions running back Theo Riddick (rib) suffered a rib injury in Week 17 against the Packers and is questionable to return. Riddick ran the ball four times for 10 yards before leaving, and with this being a meaningless game, Riddick may not return to action. That'd mean Tion Green and Ameer Abdullah would split the backfield carries the rest of the way.
