  • Lions' Kalif Raymond: Totals 564 yards in 2023

    Raymond (knee) caught 35 passes (on 44 targets) for 489 yards with one touchdown while rushing seven times for 75 yards over 17 regular-season games in 2023.

    While he didn't reach the four touchdowns he scored in 2021 or the 652 yards he totaled in 2022, Raymond put together yet another respectable season as a tertiary option in Detroit's high-flying offense while pitching in at punt returner as well. He rarely needed much playing time to do it, either, given that Raymond topped 30 percent of the offensive snaps in just six games and had more than four targets only twice. With offensive coordinator Ben Johnson surprisingly coming back as Detroit's offensive coordinator, Raymond -- who remains under contract through 2025 -- should be back next season as an interesting gadget player on offense and a key player on special teams.

  • Lions' Kalif Raymond: Won't return Sunday

    Raymond (knee) has been ruled out ahead of Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the 49ers, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

    The 29-year-old wideout is now set to miss his third consecutive game after sustaining a knee injury during the Lions' Week 18 win over the Vikings. Donovan Peoples-Jones could be in for a larger role in Detroit's wide receiver corps without Raymond in the NFC Championship Game.

  • Lions' Kalif Raymond: Misses Thursday's practice

    Raymond (knee) didn't participate in Thursday's practice.

    Since sustaining a knee injury during the Lions' regular-season finale, Raymond has failed to appear in either of the team's first two playoff games. His chances to play in the NFC Championship Game seem slim after he began Detroit's week of practice with back-to-back DNPs, and he will almost certainly carry an injury designation into the weekend unless he's able to practice in full Friday.

  • Lions' Kalif Raymond: Doesn't participate in walkthrough

    Raymond (knee) didn't participate in Wednesday's walkthrough practice.

    Raymond has remained out for both of Detroit's first two playoff games after injuring his knee in the team's Week 18 win over the Vikings. When healthy, the 29-year-old serves as a depth receiver and as the Lions' punt returner, but Donovan Peoples-Jones would see an expanded role on both offense and special teams if Raymond ends up sitting out Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the 49ers.

  • Lions' Kalif Raymond: Won't play in divisional round

    Raymond (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's divisional-round contest versus the Buccaneers, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    With no on-field reps to speak of this week, Raymond wasn't in a great position to return to action for the first time since suffering a knee injury in the regular-season finale against the Vikings, and indeed he won't be available to the Lions offense Sunday. With Raymond sidelined, Detroit will continue to roll with Amon-Ra St. Brown, Jameson Williams and Josh Reynolds as its top three wide receivers this weekend.

  • Lions' Kalif Raymond: Still not practicing

    Raymond (knee) was a non-participant at practice Thursday.

    Raymond has yet to experience any on-field work since injuring his knee Week 18 versus the Vikings, but coach Dan Campbell told Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press on Wednesday that the wide receiver is "better," and the Lions won't know for sure if he has a chance to return this weekend until "Friday or Saturday." As a result, Raymond's listing on Friday's practice report may be key in terms of his odds of suiting up for Sunday's divisional-round game against the Buccaneers.

  • Lions' Kalif Raymond: Sidelined to begin divisional-round prep

    Raymond (knee) didn't practice Wednesday.

    Per Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, head coach Dan Campbell said Wednesday that Raymond's injured knee is improving, but the depth receiver and punt returner's status for Sunday's divisional-round game against the Buccaneers remains uncertain. Raymond seems unlikely to practice Thursday, but a return to the field Friday could set the stage for him to play Sunday.

  • Lions' Kalif Raymond: Won't play in wild-card round

    Raymond (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's wild-card round game against the Rams, Eric Woodyard of ESPN.com reports.

    Raymond injured his knee in Week 18 and was subsequently unable to practice prior to being ruled out for Sunday's playoff opener. On the bright side, fellow wide receiver Jameson Williams (ankle) doesn't have an injury designation, so the Lions will have top three wideouts Amon-Ra St. Brown, Williams and Josh Reynolds available. With Raymond ruled out, Donovan Peoples-Jones could step up as both a depth receiver and punt returner.

  • Lions' Kalif Raymond: Not trending toward playing Sunday

    Raymond (knee) isn't practicing Wednesday and isn't considered likely to play in Sunday's playoff game against the Rams, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

    Raymond was injured during the Week 18 win over Minnesota and apparently is considered even less likely to play than tight end Sam LaPorta, whom coach Dan Campbell referred to as having an "outside shot" to suit up Sunday earlier this week. Wide receiver Jameson Williams (ankle) made his return to practice Wednesday, and the likelihood that Williams will be available for the wild-card round alleviates much of the concern about how a potential Raymond absence would impact the offense, but the Lions also need a replacement punt returner if their No. 4 wideout can't go this Sunday. Options to replace Raymond on returns could include fellow wide receivers Donovan Peoples-Jones and Amon-Ra St. Brown.

  • Lions' Kalif Raymond: Won't return Week 18

    Raymond (knee) has been ruled out for the rest of Sunday's game against the Vikings.

    Raymond sustained the knee injury in the second half of Sunday's contest and will not return. He finishes the day with two catches for 50 yards and returned four punts for 89 yards.

  • Lions' Kalif Raymond: One catch against Cowboys

    Raymond caught one pass for 11 yards during Saturday's 20-19 loss to Dallas.

    Raymond made a nice catch for a first down on the first drive of the game but wasn't heard from on offense again. He'll remain off the fantasy radar in the regular-season finale at home against the Vikings.

  • Lions' Kalif Raymond: Three touches against Vikings

    Raymond caught two of two targets for 29 yards while rushing once for eight yards during Sunday's win over Minnesota.

    Still running comfortably as the No. 4 option at wide receiver, Raymond got a few touches on offense but didn't even attempt a punt return. He'll remain off the fantasy radar Week 17 against Dallas.

  • Lions' Kalif Raymond: One catch against Broncos

    Raymond secured his only target for 12 yards during Saturday's win over the Broncos.

    Raymond again logged less than a third of the offensive snaps while remaining the primary option on punt returns. The rotational deep threat will remain off the fantasy radar in most formats entering a Week 16 showdown with the Vikings.
