  • Lions' Tom Kennedy: Gets new contract

    Kennedy signed a reserve/future contract with the Lions on Tuesday, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.

    Kennedy was injured during training camp with Detroit, but after being waived with an injury settlement, he found his way back to the organization in November as a member of the practice squad. The 27-year-old has played in 20 career games -- all with the Lions -- and has recorded 14 catches for 195 yards on 25 targets.

  • Tom Kennedy: Visits with Detroit

    Kennedy (arm) visited the Lions on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Kennedy was waived by Detroit from injured reserve with a settlement in August but will now look to rejoin the team. Now healthy again, the 27-year-old could provide the team with much needed help at receiver after Marvin Jones was released on Tuesday.

  • Tom Kennedy: Waived with injury settlement

    Kennedy (arm) was waived with an injury settlement by the Lions on Monday.

    Kennedy had been slated to miss the entire 2023 season after being placed on injured reserve. After being waived, the wide receiver can sign with another NFL team and be eligible to play in 2023, but Kennedy's recovery timeline remains uncertain.

  • Lions' Tom Kennedy: Suffers left arm injury

    Kennedy, who was placed on injured reserve Saturday, was out at practice Sunday with his left arm in a sling, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.

    Kennedy was initially waived with an injury designation Friday before being reverted to injured reserve a day later. Kennedy signed a reserve/future contract with the Lions in January after catching eight passes for 141 yards in seven games in 2022. He'll be forced to sit out for the 2023 season unless he reaches an injury settlement with Detroit.

  • Lions' Tom Kennedy: Reverts to injured reserve

    Kennedy (upper body) reverted to Detroit's injured reserve Saturday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Kennedy was waived with an injury designation Friday after suffering an upper body issue in Wednesday's practice, though the specifics of this injury are still unclear. Barring any injury settlement, the 5-foot-10 wideout will now be forced to sit out the entirety of the 2023 campaign.

  • Tom Kennedy: Waived with injury designation

    Kennedy (upper body) was waived with an injury designation by the Lions on Friday, Tim Twentyman of the team's official site reports.

    Kennedy sustained the injury in practice Wednesday when linebacker Jack Campbell fell on him as Kennedy was trying to complete a catch while going to the ground. Twentyman believes Kennedy could return to the team once healthy, but Detroit wanted to free up a roster spot in the meantime to sign fellow wide receiver Trey Quinn.

  • Lions' Tom Kennedy: Lands reserve/future contract

    The Lions signed Kennedy to a reserve/future contract Monday, Tim Twentyman of the team's official site reports.

    Kennedy accumulated the best stat line of his career over seven games with Detroit this season, catching eight of 15 targets for 141 yards. The 26-year-old has now appeared in 19 regular-season games over the last two years with the Lions, so it's not surprising to see the team wants to keep him around heading into the offseason. Kennedy will look to carve out a bigger role among this well-stocked receiving corps heading into the 2023 campaign.

  • Tom Kennedy: Sticking with Detroit

    The Lions re-signed Kennedy to the practice squad Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Kennedy was ruled a healthy scratch in back-to-back weeks before he was waived Saturday ahead of Sunday's win over the Jets. However, the 26-year-old cleared waivers Monday and will return to the Lions' practice squad, where he spent the first four weeks of the season. Kennedy has caught eight of 15 targets for 141 yards over seven games this season, and he should be first in line to be elevated from the practice squad should any of Detroit's wideouts miss time due to injury moving forward.

    Kennedy was waived by the Lions on Saturday, Jeff Risdon of USA Today reports.
