  • Lions' Jason Cabinda: Playing Sunday

    Cabinda (knee) is listed as active Sunday in Green Bay.

    Cabinda didn't practice Wednesday, but his ability to manage some reps both Thursday and Friday seemingly was enough for him to be available at fullback for the Lions. In his seven appearances this season, he has a four-yard carry and a five-yard catch (on four targets) while also playing a good amount on special teams.

  • Lions' Jason Cabinda: Receives injury tag for Week 18

    The Lions list Cabinda (knee) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers.

    If Cabinda isn't available for the regular-season finale, the Lions will be playing the game without a true fullback. Cabinda has held a small role on offense while suiting up for seven of the Lions' last eight games, playing no more than 41 percent of the snaps on any occasion and earning just two touches (one carry and one reception) during that stretch.

  • Lions' Jason Cabinda: Logs full session Wednesday

    Cabinda (illness) practiced fully Wednesday, per the team's official site.

    Cabinda was unable to give it a go this past weekend against Carolina due to an illness, but his ability to partake in Wednesday's session without limitations implies that he'll be ready to suit up New Year's Day versus the Bears.

  • Lions' Jason Cabinda: Deemed out Week 16

    Cabinda (illness) will be sidelined for Saturday's game against the Panthers.

    Cabinda did not practice at all during Week 16 prep while dealing with an illness, though the nature of this ailment is still unknown. The fullback has recorded one carry over the Lions' past six games, though his absence will leave the team without its primary run blocker against Carolina. In his absence, either tight ends Shane Zylstra or James Mitchell will likely take on a bigger blocking role out of the backfield. Cabinda's next chance to play will come against the Bears on Sunday, Jan. 1.

  • Lions' Jason Cabinda: Will be available against Jets

    Cabinda (ankle) is active for Sunday's game at the Jets, Rich Cimini of ESPN reports.

    After being limited at practice all week with an ankle injury, Cabinda appears poised to play in Week 15. He hasn't drawn a target since Week 11 and has only gotten one touch since then.

  • Lions' Jason Cabinda: Listed as questionable for Sunday

    Cabinda (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Jets, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

    Cabinda didn't practice Thursday and was limited Wednesday and Friday due to an ankle injury. The fullback missed the Lions' first nine games of the season while on the reserve/PUP list with an ankle issue, but it's unclear if the two issues are related. Regardless, Cabinda has rushed just once for four yards and failed to haul in either of his two targets across five appearances this season, so his potential absence wouldn't have any fantasy implications.

  • Lions' Jason Cabinda: Decreases activity Thursday

    Cabinda (ankle) was a non-participant during the Lions' practice Thursday.

    Cabinda was sidelined for the first nine games of the season while on Detroit's reserve/PUP list with an ankle injury. The fullback was then limited in practice with an ankle issue Wednesday before missing Thursday's session, though it's unclear if this is related to his injury from the beginning of the season. He'll now have one more opportunity to ramp his activity back up before Sunday's game against Jets. Cabinda has seen a consistent role on both offense and special teams over the past five games, and his potential absence would likely leave one of the Lions' tight ends to take on a lead-blocking role out of the backfield.

  • Lions' Jason Cabinda: Returning from PUP list

    Detroit activated Cabinda (ankle) from its reserve/PUP list Saturday ahead of Sunday's game at Chicago.

    Cabinda is set to potentially make his 2022 debut Sunday after being placed on the reserve/PUP list back in August. He could be in line to see significant work right away against a porous Bears run defense.

  • Lions' Jason Cabinda: Back at practice

    Cabinda (ankle) practiced for the first time this season Wednesday, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.

    Cabinda remains on the PUP list, but it's certainly a positive sign that he's back on the practice field. The fullback underwent offseason arthroscopic surgery and is expected to be ready for training camp, but a procedure complication has forced him to miss significant time. According to Rogers, Cabinda could be ready to appear in a game by Nov. 24 against Buffalo.
