We break down the news that Reynolds has a back injury. What it means for Week 11 and beyond.

Friday PM update: Reynolds didn’t practice Friday, so his only practice was a limited on on Thursday. It doesn’t seem like he will play, but he is listed as questionable.

Friday update: Reynolds was not spotted at practice on Friday, per Dave Birkett. This is not a good sign for his chance to play against the Giants. DJ Chark may be able to return and Amon-Ra St. Brown remains the No. 1 target.

Thursday PM Update: Reynolds was listed as a limited participant in practice. It’s definitely an improvement from no practice on Wednesday, but you’d like to see him log a full practice Friday to increase his chances to play Sunday.

Thursday update: Reynolds returned to practice on Thursday, per Jeremy Reisman. This is a good sign, but he will likely be questionable after missing two weeks and likely getting in limited practices.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Josh Reynolds still has not returned to practice as of Wednesday. The Lions prepare to face the New York Giants on Sunday, but may be missing Reynolds yet again with a back injury that has kept him out of both practices and games since Week 8.

Fantasy football implications for Week 11

Reynolds’ absence has been an expectation over the past few weeks, and the Lions have other WRs who they can rely on, though the position group has been plagued with injuries throughout the first half of this season (DJ Chark is still on injured reserve).

Kalif Raymond and Amon-Ra St. Brown will split the majority of targets from Jared Goff, and backup Tom Kennedy has been seeing some good opportunities, as well. Kennedy has added 128 yards over seven receptions in the four games that he played — not bad for a 5-foot-10 Bryant grad who has moved from the practice squad to the active roster and back more times than you can count.
