  • Lions' Nate Sudfeld: Shifts to IR

    The Lions placed Sudfeld (knee) on injured reserve Tuesday.

    Sudfeld suffered a torn ACL during Detroit's preseason finale, so it was already known that he would miss the entire 2023 season. The 29-year-old will turn his focus toward making a recovery for the 2024 campaign.

  • Lions' Nate Sudfeld: Torn ACL confirmed

    Sudfeld (knee) will miss the 2023 season due to a torn ACL, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Sudfeld received a second opinion Monday, confirming the season-ending severity of the knee injury he suffered in Friday's preseason finale against the Panthers. With Sudfeld done for the year and Hendon Hooker (knee) still on the active/non-football injury list, Detroit becomes a strong candidate to add another healthy body to a quarterback room that currently only has undrafted rookie Adrian Martinez behind Jared Goff and Teddy Bridgewater

  • Lions' Nate Sudfeld: Injury may be serious

    Coach Dan Campbell declined to confirm Monday whether Sudfeld (knee) is dealing with a torn ACL and said the quarterback will receive a second opinion, Kyle Meinke of reports.

    Sudfeld was forced to depart Friday's preseason game early, and it appears that he may be dealing with a significant knee injury.

  • Lions' Nate Sudfeld: Suffers apparent knee injury

    Sudfeld exited Friday's preseason game after his knee buckled while rolling out of the pocket, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Sudfeld is currently fighting for a spot on the Lions' active roster behind quarterbacks Jared Goff and Teddy Bridgewater, and this doesn't help his case. The extent of the veteran's injury is unknown at the moment.

  • Lions' Nate Sudfeld: Returning to Detroit

    Sudfeld and the Lions agreed to a contract Friday.

    Sudfeld will be back in Detroit next season after spending the 2022 campaign with the team. He'll likely operate as the top backup behind starting quarterback Jared Goff once again in 2023. Sudfeld has not thrown a pass in an NFL regular-season contest since 2020 and is unlikely to have much of an impact unless Goff goes down with an injury.

  • Lions' Nate Sudfeld: Dealing with illness

    Sudfeld (illness) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Vikings.

    Sudfeld didn't practice all week due to an illness, but he still has a chance to suit up Sunday. If Sudfeld is deemed unavailable for Week 14, the Lions would likely elevate practice-squad quarterback Joshua Dobbs to the active roster to operate as the primary backup behind Jared Goff.

    The Lions are expected to sign Sudfeld if he passes a physical Wednesday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.
