THEO RIDDICK RUMORS & GOSSIP

Lions Injury Update: Theo Riddick, Reggie Bush

The Detroit Lions were without their biggest threat out of the backfield in Sunday's win over the Minnesota Vikings. Reggie Bush was inactive after suffering an ankle injury in week five. In his absence, Joique Bell led the rushing attack, while fellow running back Theo Riddick was the teams leading receiver. Riddick had to leave the game though after suffering a hamstring injury...

Report: Reggie Bush not expected to play

It doesn’t look like the Detroit Lions will have veteran running back Reggie Bush for today’s game against the Minnesota Vikings. Theo Riddick is expected to start in his place. #Lions do not plan on having RB Reggie Bush today, per source. Who steps in? Keep an eye on promising RB Theo Riddick. Shifty. They like him — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 12, 2014 Riddick was...

The two-and-a-half weeks are up, and now the Lions turn their focus to tonight’s preseason contest against the Oakland Raiders.

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick impresses, but competition tough

Theo Riddick had a pretty impressive spring, and the second-year running back is off to a good start in training camp. But with Reggie Bush and Joique Bell in front of him on the depth chart and Mikel Leshoure vying for time in a big-back role, it remains to be seen how much of an impact Riddick will have for the Detroit Lions this fall. Lions running backs coach Curtis Modkins...

Everyone is talking about Theo Riddick

I keep hearing about Theo Riddick. The other players on the Detroit Lions can’t seem to stop praising him. Joique Bell feels Riddick could end up in the pro bowl this year. Dan Orlovsky sees the Lions making sure eight plays a game are run with the intention of throwing to Riddick. Orlovsky also thinks that no one can cover Riddick and that he could end up in a Darren Sproles type...

Lions' Theo Riddick finds a role on special teams

Theo Riddick didn't play on special teams at Notre Dame. He was too valuable to the franchise there. But the fact that he's playing — and excelling — on special teams with the Lions shouldn't be taken as a sign of depreciation. "I'm just a small fish in a big pond right now" Riddick said. "I am just trying to do whatever I can to try and make this...

Theo Riddick: Reggie Bush Lite?

Martin Mayhew and his staff are apparently sly like foxes.  When they managed to lure Reggie Bush to Detroit, they must have already known about the durability issues that have hovered around the running back his entire career.  But talent on his level tends to offset such concerns, at least in the short term.   But the worries must never leave the back of one’s mind, and when...
