  • Lions' Kalif Raymond: Plays through broken ribs

    Raymond told reporters Monday that he played the second half of Sunday's win over the Packers with broken ribs, Eric Woodyard of reports.

    It's unclear when Raymond suffered the injury, but he said it happened sometime during the first half, which means he made arguably the play of the night -- a 43-yard catch in the third quarter to set up the first touchdown of the game -- with broken ribs. The big play helped pave the way for the undrafted wideout out of Holy Cross to lead the Lions in receiving as they upset their divisional rival and kept Green Bay out of the playoffs. Raymond, who has one year remaining on his contract with the Lions, presumably will have plenty of time to recover during the offseason and should be ready for the 2023 campaign.

  • Lions' Kalif Raymond: Leads team in receiving Sunday

    Raymond caught four of six targets for 66 yards in Sunday's 20-16 win over Green Bay.

    Raymond finished as the Lions' leading receiver in a game during which No. 1 wideout Amon-Ra St. Brown (6-49-0) struggled to break free against the Packers' elite secondary. The veteran wideout carved out a nice role with Detroit this season, finishing with 51 receptions and 682 receiving yards, both of which set new high-water marks for his career. However, with Jameson Williams set to see an expanded role, it is uncertain if Raymond will have the opportunity to build upon this season during the second-year of his two-year deal with Detroit.

  • Lions' Kalif Raymond: Another handful of catches

    Raymond caught three of three targets for 40 yards during Sunday's 41-10 win over the Bears.

    Raymond found the most success through the air among Lions depth receivers, but his low-volume role continues to prove much more valuable in real life than fantasy. Raymond will be back on the field in a Week 18 matchup with the Packers.

  • Lions' Kalif Raymond: Totals 64 yards

    Raymond brought in his only target for 56 yards while rushing once for eight yards during Saturday's loss to the Panthers.

    Remaining in the No. 4 role at wideout, Raymond made a huge play to get the Lions into scoring position at one point. He also had a longer run than any of Detroit's running backs, displaying how tough of a day it was for the Lions on the ground. Next up for Raymond is a Week 17 matchup with the Bears.

  • Lions' Kalif Raymond: Two grabs against Vikings

    Raymond secured two of two targets for 19 yards during Sunday's win over Minnesota.

    After seeing a massive role reduction last week in the return of Josh Reynolds and the pro debut of Jameson Williams, Raymond saw another dip in playing time Sunday at the benefit of Williams. With Reynolds likely to maintain his spot as the No. 3 wideout given his productivity in the offense this year, Raymond stands to lose more and more snaps if Detroit wants to keep getting more out of Williams.

  • Lions' Kalif Raymond: Active in Week 14

    Raymond (illness) is active for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

    After a week in which he was capped at one limited practice Friday due to an illness, Raymond will be available to the Lions offense for the 13th time in as many contests this season. Having said that, his workload has experienced a drastic reduction with DJ Chark again operating at full capacity and rookie first-rounder Jameson Williams making his pro debut last Sunday. Consequently, Raymond may have to take advantage of his sparse targets, which so far have gone for 8.3 YPT in 2022.

  • Lions' Kalif Raymond: Questionable, likely to play Sunday

    Raymond (illness) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

    After sitting out the Lions' first two practice sessions of the week, Raymond returned to the field Friday in a limited capacity. While Raymond wasn't able to avoid taking a designation into the weekend, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press relays that the receiver is expected to play. However, with the Lions' receiving corps at close to full strength and with rookie first-round Jameson Williams likely to see at least a slight uptick in opportunities after playing only eight snaps on offense in last week's win over the Jaguars in his NFL debut, Raymond's playing time may only drop from here. Raymond already saw his snap count take a significant hit last week, when he was on the field for just 16 percent of the Lions' offensive plays as the team's No. 4 wideout.

  • Lions' Kalif Raymond: Remains sidelined at practice

    Raymond (illness) was a non-participant at Thursday's practice.

    The Lions have held Raymond out of both sessions so far to begin Week 14 prep, giving him just one more chance to take part in drills before the team potentially hands him a designation for Sunday's game against the Vikings. Even if he's able to suit up this weekend, though, he's taken a fall down Detroit's WR depth chart with the recent debut of rookie first-round pick Jameson Williams. All of Amon-Ra St. Brown, DJ Chark, Josh Reynolds and Williams appear to be ahead of Raymond at the position.

  • Lions' Kalif Raymond: Misses practice with illness

    Raymond missed Wednesday's practice with an illness.

    Raymond has a few days to get healthy before Sunday's matchup with Minnesota, though he's only the fourth or fifth wide receiver now that DJ Chark, Jameson Williams and Josh Reynolds all are healthy. Chark and Reynolds saw most of the playing time alongside Amon-Ra St. Brown in Sunday's win over Jacksonville, with Raymond playing only 13 snaps and Williams taking eight in his NFL debut. Prior to that, Raymond had played more than three-fourths of Detroit's offensive snaps in seven straight games, averaging 3.7 catches for 46.9 yards on 5.1 targets in that stretch. He still hasn't scored a touchdown this season even with 382 receiving yards, 218 return yards and 24 rushing yards on his ledger.
