RB - Detroit Lions - IR
Zonovan Knight suffered a season-ending shoulder injury in his Week 5 game against the Panthers.
Knight only saw one touch in the win over Carolina, an eight-yard reception. He finishes his 2023 season with three carries for 13 yards and the lone reception. Playing on a one-year deal with the Lions, Knight will look to rehab and catch on with another team in the 2024 offseason.
The Lions have signed RB Zonovan Knight to their active roster.
Knight will move from the practice squad to the active roster to provide some depth after David Montgomery suffered a thigh injury in Week 2. The 22-year-old was solid in seven games with the Jets last season, tallying 300 rushing yards and one touchdown on 85 carries in seven games. Fantasy managers should expect Jahmyr Gibbs and Craig Reynolds to see additional work while Montgomery is out.
Former Jets RB Zonovan Knight has signed with the Lions as a member of the team's practice squad.
Knight started four games last year as a Jet's rookie after Breece Hall's torn ACL. The Jets waived Knight ahead of Tuesday's 53-man roster deadline, and he will now fight for a chance to make the Lions roster in 2023. Both veteran David Montgomery and 12th overall pick Jahmyr Gibbs will have significant roles in Detroit's backfield, but there is an opportunity for Knight as a depth piece.
The New York Jets have waived RB Zonovan Knight.
According to the report by Ian Rapoport, Knight received some trade interest, so he likely will be claimed on waivers. The 22-year-old appeared in seven games last season, tallying 300 rushing yards, 100 receiving yards, and one touchdown. With the move to waive Knight, fantasy managers should expect the team to carry Michael Carter and Israel Abanikanda as the RB3 and RB4 on the Jets’ roster.
Zonovan Knight is a candidate to be released ahead of Week 1.
It appears Michael Carter and Israel Abanikanda are on track to make the Week 1 roster behind Breece Hall and Dalvin Cook. Knight showcased flashes last season and it is very possible he gets another shot with a new team if he is released.
