Desmond Trufant (hamstring) ruled out Week 6

CB Desmond Trufant (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's Week 6 contest against the Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact

Trufant did not practice all week and was ultimately ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. The Lions had a bye Week 5, but it wasn't enough time for Trufant to heal. Look for Gary Roberts and Chris Jones to be Detroit's starting corners on Sunday.

Desmond Trufant (hamstring) active for Week 4

Lions CB Desmond Trufant (hamstring) is active for the Lions' Week 4 game against the Saints.

Fantasy Impact

Trufant hasn't played since Week 1. His return is a nice boost to Detroit's secondary.

Desmond Trufant expected to play in Week 4

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Lions CB Desmond Trufant (hamstring) is expected to play in Week 4.

Fantasy Impact

It looks like Trufant will play for the first time since Week 1 in Sunday's matchup against the banged-up Saints. While the Lions' defense was lit up last week by Arizona wideouts, they've played better in the first two games. Trufant's return will only help Detroit's cause facing the Saints' passing attack sans Jared Cook and Michael Thomas.
