Devin Funchess catches four passes for 19 yards and a touchdown in the Lions' 27-23 loss to the Falcons.
Funchess was only targeted four times, but he managed to make work of those four, scoring the first receiving touchdown of the preseason.

Funchess is trying to revive his career in Detroit after a few disappointing tenured with various teams, but he is now facing new injury obstacles that he will have to overcome in order to earn a roster spot.

Green Bay Packers WR Devin Funchess (hamstring) has been placed on season-ending Injured Reserve (IR), per Adam Schefter.
Funchess opted out of the 2020 season and was set to contribute in a loaded Packers offense with Aaron Rodgers' return until he injured his hamstring during the team's joint practice with the New York Jets last week. With Funchess on IR, this gives the Packers several directions to finish constructing their 2021 roster with the final round of cuts set to occur after this weekend. Rookie wideout Amari Rodgers could see increased targets and compete with Randall Cobb as Green Bay's WR4. Amari Rodgers is not worth drafting but could be a good waiver wire pick-up if he establishes a credible role within the Packers' offense.
Packers WR Devin Funchess has agreed to take a pay cut in order to remain with the team.
Funchess has agreed to a pay cut of around $750,000 to help ease his cap hit. After signing a one-year contract with the Packers last year, he made the decision to opt-out of the 2020 season. Funchess hasn't played a game in nearly two years at this point, So it's difficult to project what he can bring to the table. The Packers have been looking to solidify their WR2 for some time now, and maybe a healthy Funchess can play the part.
WR Devin Funchess opts out of the 2020 season.
