No game reps as rookie

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-02-11

Hooker did not appear in a game during the 2023 season.

Drafted in the third round of the 2023 NFL Draft, Hooker had a slow start to his professional career while rebounding from a torn ACL from November of 2022, when he was a Heisman Trophy candidate at Tennessee. While he did not appear in a game as a rookie, Hooker did serve as the emergency No. 3 quarterback for the final three regular-season games and each of Detroit's playoff contests. With Teddy Bridgewater set to retire this offseason, the path is wide open for Hooker to open the 2024 campaign as Detroit's backup quarterback behind Jared Goff.

Emergency QB for NFC Championship

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-28

Hooker (mouth) is inactive for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the 49ers but will serve as the emergency quarterback, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Hooker was added to the Lions' injury report Friday after not participating in practice due to a tooth issue. Like he has done all season, Hooker will serve as the emergency QB3 and will only see if the field if both Jared Goff and Teddy Bridgewater leave the game and cannot return.

Questionable for Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-26

Hooker (mouth) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the 49ers, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

The rookie out of Tennessee was a late addition to Detroit's injury report, as he popped up as a non-participant in Friday's practice due to a tooth issue. This injury puts Hooker's status for Sunday's NFC Championship Game in jeopardy, but even if he's able to suit up, he would likely serve as the Lions' third-string quarterback behind both Jared Goff and Teddy Bridgewater.

Emergency option

Hooker (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's matchup with the Vikings, but will be available as an emergency option at quarterback.

Hooker will only see the field if both Jared Goff and Teddy Bridgewater sustain injuries. He has not played in any game this season.

Inactive for Saturday night

Hooker (coach's decision) is inactive for Saturday night's game against the Cowboys.

Hooked was activated from the NFI list ahead of Week 16 but will be inactive for the second straight week. He's only available as the emergency third quarterback behind Jared Goff and Teddy Bridgewater.

Serving as No. 3 QB

Hooker (coach's decision) is inactive ahead of Sunday's game against the Vikings.

The rookie quarterback out of Tennessee was activated from the Lions' reserve/non-football injury list Tuesday, but it still seems as if he's behind both Jared Goff and Teddy Bridgewater on the team's depth chart. Hooker will serve as Detroit's emergency option at QB in Week 16.

Will be available at Minnesota

The Lions activated Hooker (knee) from their reserve/non-football injury list Tuesday.

Hooker has spent the entire season up to this point on Detroit's reserve/NFI list, but it now looks like he'll finally be available in Week 16. As long as one of Jared Goff or Teddy Bridgewater is available, Hooker still isn't likely to see the field this year.

Ruled out for Saturday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-14

Hooker (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Broncos.

The third-string quarterback remains on the reserve/non-football injury list despite being listed as a full participant in practice on eight straight injury reports. Since the Lions designated Hooker to return Nov. 29, he would have to be added to the 53-man roster in Week 16 in order to play this season.

Remains out

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-08

Hooker (knee) has been ruled out ahead of Sunday's game against the Bears.

Hooker is still on Detroit's reserve/non-football injury list, and he'll remain out through Week 14. Once the 2023 third-round pick returns to the field, he could challenge Teddy Bridgewater for the Lions' backup quarterback role.
