Lions rule out Theo Riddick (knee) for Week 7

Detroit Lions running back Theo Riddick (knee) has been ruled out for Week 7 against the Miami Dolphins.

What It Means:

Riddick missed practice all week with a knee injury. The ailment must be severe as the Lions are coming off their bye week. Kerryon Johnson should see an expanded role in the passing game with Ameer Abdulah possibly making an appearance on Sunday.

Riddick rushed just 8 times for 30 yards this season but added 23 catches and 138 receiving yards in 5 games.
