Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (neck) took full practice reps again Thursday. It looks like Abdullah will make his return this week. He was questionable last week after being limited in practice, but was a scratch on Sunday. If he returns, Theo Riddick’s touches are going to take a hit.

Scouting Report

Week 15 vs. Chicago Bears

Ameer Abdullah was out again last week in the win over the Buccaneers, allowing for Theo Riddick to step in and have a productive outing. Riddick led the team with 10 carries for 29 yards and 2 rushing TDs. He also caught 6 passes for a season-high 64 yards. Even if Riddick is now the Lions' top RB, don’t expect him to receive a heavy workload, but he should still be effective in the passing attack. He led the Lions with 35 rushing yards in the win at Chicago last month and makes for an RB2 play on Saturday night.
