  • Lions' Isaiah Buggs: Out for Thursday's game

    Buggs is a healthy scratch for the season opener against the Chiefs on Thursday night.

  • Lions' Isaiah Buggs: Likely to lose starting role

    Buggs may be a healthy scratch in Thursday's season opener against Kansas City, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.

    Buggs has missed recent practice time due to an "illness" while concurrently expressing frustration that he was told by coaches that he wouldn't be active for Week 1. The news comes as a surprise after Buggs was rewarded with a $6 million deal this offseason, presumably with the intention of returning as Detroit's starting nose tackle. Both Brodric Martin and Benito Jones have cut into Buggs' reps during training camp and the preseason.

  • Lions' Isaiah Buggs: Re-signs with Lions

    Buggs and the Lions agreed to a two-year, $6 million contract Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Buggs will be back in Detroit in 2023 after he produced a career-best 46 tackles, including a sack, with the team last season. The interior defensive lineman was also able to deflect two passes and force a fumble while playing in all 17 games in 2022. After three seasons as a reserve option in Pittsburgh, Buggs appears to have carved out a long-term starting spot on Detroit's defensive line.
