Lions' Josh Bynes: Re-signs with Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bynes (knee) re-signed with the Lions on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Bynes rejoins the Lions after being released by the team back in September. He was initially placed on injured reserve due to a knee aliment, but his re-signing could mean he is nearing a return. Look for more information to be released this week, as the linebacker is expected to backup Thurston Armbrister.

Lions' Tahir Whitehead: Registers 12 tackles in Sunday victory
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Whitehead recorded 12 tackles and defended a pass Sunday against Washington.

With the exception of one game, Whitehead has recorded at least nine tackles in each game this season, and he's posted at least 11 stops in three of his last four contests. He'll likely break his career high of 86 tackles within his next two matchups, and he's clearly a player in the midst of a breakout. In addition to the excellent tackle numbers, he's now been credited with five pass defenses on the year, and he's definitely a player who's worthy of a roster spot in IDP leagues.

Lions' Clay Harbor: Most involved of Detroit tight ends
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harbor secured both of his targets for 16 yards Sunday against the Redskins.

With Eric Ebron (knee) and Brandon Pettigrew (knee - ACL) still out of commission, only a trio of Harbor, Khari Lee and Cole Wick remained to make up the Lions' tight end corps Sunday. Out of those three, Harbor was the only one to see any attention at all in the passing game, and that's now been the case for two consecutive weeks. The Missouri State product hasn't been able to carve out a significant target share amongst all Lions pass catchers, though, as Golden Tate, Marvin Jones and Anquan Boldin have operated as QB Matthew Stafford's go-to options downfield. Such a trend is unlikely to change anytime soon, and with both Ebron and Pettigrew each nearing a return, Harbor's receiving totals only stand to decrease in the coming weeks.

Lions' Darius Slay: Status uncertain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay's (hamstring) status for Sunday's game against the Texans is uncertain at this point, the Detroit Free Press reports.

Slay exited Sunday's win over the Redskins after injuring his hamstring and is slated for further evaluation Monday. While coach Jim Caldwell didn't provide an update on his situation, the Lions' injury report should offer some clarity later in the week. With a matchup against star wideout DeAndre Hopkins looming, Detroit will certainly hope to have Slay available come Sunday.

Lions' Anquan Boldin: Corrals game-winning touchdown
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Boldin caught three passes for 28 yards and one touchdown Sunday against the Redskins.

With the Lions trailing by three with 16 seconds to go, QB Matthew Stafford found Boldin on an 18-yard dart to win the contest. The score represents Boldin's fourth on the season, though his yardage total remained modest. It may be a challenge for the veteran to score for a third consecutive game next week against the Texans' second-ranked pass defense.
