NFC North Notes: Lions, Packers, Vikings


Lions rookie TE T.J. Hockenson is still in the league’s concussion protocol, but appears to be on track to return for Monday’s game against the Packers.

“He was at practice yesterday, completed another day, then they check with the doctors and I think we got maybe one more day of that and then we’ll see where we go from there,” Lions HC Matt Patricia said, via the Detroit Free Press. “Practicing, doing all those things, but the doctors, whatever the priority is, they practice and then they check him, and they practice and then they check him and go through until they’re all cleared.”

When asked if he expects Hockenson to play, Patricia said: “We’ll take it day by day. It’s so unpredictable, obviously, with those situations, that’s why it’s hard to comment on them, really. I let the doctors kind of handle those situations.”


  • Ian Rapoport reports that “it doesn’t seem likely” Packers WR Davante Adams (turf toe) will be able to play in Week 6.
  • According to Rapoport, the injury was described to him as a 2-6 issue and is something they feel isn’t a major injury and could be an issue he could play through.
