  • Austin Seibert: Waived by Detroit

    The Lions waived Seibert (groin) on Friday.

    Seibert won a preseason competition against Riley Patterson but then missed two field goals over the first three games and sat out Week 4 with a groin injury. Patterson now is with the Jaguars, while Michael Badgley is set to fill in for Seibert and attached to a Detroit offense that's been surprisingly productive, despite dealing with numerous injuries.

  • Lions' Austin Seibert: Maintains limited practice activity

    Seibert (groin) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

    Seibert appears to have shown some improvement in his recovery from the right groin injury that kept him sidelined for last week's 48-45 loss to the Seahawks, but he may need to turn in a full practice Friday for the Lions to feel comfortable proceeding with him as their kicker Sunday at New England. Before he sustained the groin injury, Seibert's job appeared to be in question after he missed a pair of field-goal tries in a narrow Week 3 loss to the Vikings, but special teams coordinator Dave Fipp expressed confidence in the 25-year-old's ability to improve and strengthen his hold on the role once healthy, per Tony Garcia of the Detroit Free Press. If Seibert needs more time to move past the groin injury, the Lions will promote Michael Badgley from the practice squad to handle kicking duties against the Patriots.

  • Lions' Austin Seibert: Logs limited practice

    Seibert (groin) was listed as a limited participant on the Lions' injury report Wednesday.

    Seibert didn't practice last week due to the injury and was ruled out for Sunday's loss to the Seahawks. The 25-year-old's status appears to have improved, however, given his ability to work back into Detroit's first practice of Week 5. Seibert converted three of five field-goal tries and all 12 of his PATs over the first three weeks, and he should see plenty of scoring opportunities in the Lions' prolific offense this season.

  • Lions' Austin Seibert: Won't play this week

    Seibert (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Seattle, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

    Seibert missed practice all week and now will be out for the Week 4 contest. The Lions likely will call up Dominik Eberle from the practice squad, and while the matchup with Seattle is favorable, the equation also involves an inexperienced kicker whose team has multiple key injuries on offense (D'Andre Swift and Amon-Ra St. Brown both are out this week).

  • Lions' Austin Seibert: Sitting for practice again

    Seibert (groin) isn't participating in Thursday's practice, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Seibert's right groin injury will keep him off the practice field for the second day in a row, but the Lions aren't yet closing the door on him being available to kick in Sunday's game against the Seahawks. In fact, special teams coordinator Dave Fipp told Kyle Meinke of earlier Thursday that he "feels good about where [Seibert] is at" at this stage of the week, even after the kicker missed 48- and 56-yard field-goal attempts in last week's loss to the Vikings. Detroit has Dominik Eberle available on the practice squad as an option to kick Week 4 if Seibert doesn't progress from the injury as well as the Lions hope heading into Sunday.

  • Lions' Austin Seibert: Team sounds optimistic

    Special teams coordinator Dave Fipp said Thursday that he "feels good" about Seibert's (groin) chances of being available for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Kyle Meinke of reports.

    Seibert missed two long field-goal tries during the Lions' Week 3 loss to the Vikings and didn't practice Wednesday due to a groin injury, but the team seems to be optimistic about his chances of suiting up Week 4. The kicker has two more chances to practice in some capacity ahead of Sunday's game against Seattle.

  • Lions' Austin Seibert: Sidelined due to groin injury

    Seibert didn't practice Wednesday due to a groin injury.

    Seibert missed 48-yard and 56-yard field-goal attempts during the Lions' Week 3 loss to Minnesota, but it's unclear if he was dealing with his current groin injury during the contest. His absence Wednesday is certainly concerning, but he'll have two more opportunities to return to practice before the team has to make a decision on his status for Week 4.

  • Lions' Austin Seibert: Misses two from long range

    Seibert converted one of three field-goal attempts and three of three PATs during Sunday's 28-24 loss to Minnesota.

    Seibert had plenty of chances to put together a strong fantasy outing, but he missed a 48-yard try early on before pushing wide a 56-yard field-goal attempt late in the fourth quarter. With that said, the Lions offense remained productive for a third straight week, and it bodes well for Seibert's future prospects that Detroit is consistently getting into scoring position. Up next is a Week 4 home matchup against Seattle within the indoor confines of Ford Field.

  • Lions' Austin Seibert: Totals 10 points

    Seibert converted both field-goal attempts and all four PATs during Sunday's 36-27 win over Washington.

    Seibert again handled plenty of PATs as Detroit's offense stayed hot, but this time he also got a couple of field-goal attempts to buoy his fantasy output. Given the unlikelihood the Lions will maintain the red-zone efficiency they've displayed through the first two weeks of the season, Seibert could be in for big fantasy days on occasions when Detroit falters in that area. Up next is a Week 3 road matchup in the indoor confines of Minnesota's U.S. Bank Stadium.
