Taking part in OTAs

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-05-22

Raymond (knee) participated in OTAs Wednesday.

Raymond was pictured making a catch during Wednesday's session. He missed the entirety of the Lions' playoff run last season after being injured in the regular-season finale. Raymond is currently penciled in as the Lions' third receiver behind Amon-Ra St. Brown and Jameson Williams after Josh Reynolds left as a free agent. Detroit didn't draft a single wideout last month. Raymond's competition will be in the form of Donovan Peoples-Jones and 2023 seventh-rounder Antoine Green.

Totals 564 yards in 2023

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-02-11

Raymond (knee) caught 35 passes on 44 targets for 489 yards with one touchdown while rushing seven times for 75 yards over 17 games in 2023.

While he didn't reach the four touchdowns he scored in 2021 or the 652 yards he totaled in 2022, Raymond put together yet another respectable season as a tertiary option in Detroit's high-flying offense while pitching in at punt returner as well. He rarely needed much playing time to do it, either, given that Raymond topped 30 percent of the offensive snaps in just six games and only topped four targets twice. With offensive coordinator Ben Johnson surprisingly coming back as Detroit's offensive coordinator, Raymond -- who remains under contract through 2025 -- should be back in 2024 as an interesting gadget player on offense and a key player on special teams.

Won't return Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-26

Raymond (knee) has been ruled out ahead of Sunday's game against the 49ers, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

The 29-year-old wideout is now set to miss his third consecutive game after sustaining a knee injury during the Lions' Week 18 win over the Vikings. Donovan Peoples-Jones could be in for a larger role in Detroit's wide receiver corps without Raymond in the NFC Championship game.

Misses Thursday's practice

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-25

Raymond (knee) didn't participate in Thursday's practice.

Since sustaining a knee injury during the Lions' regular-season finale, Raymond has failed to appear in either of the team's first two playoff games. His chances to play in the NFC Championship Game seem slim after beginning Detroit's week of practice with back-to-back DNPs and he will almost certainly carry an injury designation into the weekend unless he's able to practice in full Friday.

Doesn't participate in walkthrough

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-24

Raymond (knee) didn't participate in Detroit's walkthrough Wednesday.

Raymond continues to remain on the sidelines after injuring his knee in the team's Week 18 win over the Vikings. If the 29-year-old ends up missing Sunday's NFC Championship matchup versus the 49ers, Donovan Peoples-Jones should continue to handle the team's punt return duties.

Won't play in divisional round

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-19

Raymond (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's divisional-round contest versus the Buccaneers, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

With no on-field reps to speak of this week, Raymond wasn't in a great position to return to action for the first time since suffering a knee injury in the regular-season finale against the Vikings, and indeed he won't be available to the Lions offense Sunday. With Raymond sidelined, Detroit will continue to roll with Amon-Ra St. Brown, Jameson Williams and Josh Reynolds as its top three wide receivers this weekend.

Still not practicing

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-18

Raymond (knee) was a non-participant at practice Thursday.

Raymond has yet to experience any on-field work since injuring his knee Week 18 versus the Vikings, but coach Dan Campbell told Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press on Wednesday that the wide receiver is "better," and the Lions won't know for sure if he has a chance to return this weekend until "Friday or Saturday." As a result, Raymond's listing on Friday's practice report may be key for his odds to suit up for Sunday's divisional-round game against the Buccaneers.

DNP to begin divisional round prep

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-17

Raymond (knee) didn't practice Wednesday.

Per Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, coach Dan Campbell said Wednesday that Raymond's injured knee is improving, but the depth receiver and punt returner's status for Sunday's divisional round game against the Buccaneers remains uncertain. "He's better," Campbell said. "Honestly, this is going to be one of those that comes down to Friday or Saturday before we know for sure. He's improved a ton." Raymond seems unlikely to practice Thursday, but a return Friday could set the stage for him to play Sunday, as was the case for teammate Sam LaPorta in the wild-card round.

Won't play in wild-card round

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-12

Raymond (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's wild-card round game against the Rams, Eric Woodyard of reports.

Raymond injured his knee in Week 18 and was subsequently unable to practice prior to being ruled out for Sunday's playoff opener. On the bright side, fellow wide receiver Jameson Williams (ankle) doesn't have an injury designation, so the Lions will have top three wideouts Amon-Ra St. Brown, Williams and Josh Reynolds available. With Raymond ruled out, Donovan Peoples-Jones could step up as both a depth receiver and punt returner.
