Back with Detroit

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-03-14

The Lions re-signed Dorsey on Thursday.

Detroit opted not to tender Dorsey as an exclusive rights free agent a couple weeks back, but the two sides were able to come to a compromise to get him back in the fold. Dorsey saw most of his action on special teams last season.

The Lions will not tender exclusive rights free agent Dorsey, allowing him to reach unrestricted free agency, Jeremy Fowler of reports.

Signed to Detroit's practice squad in December of 2022, Dorsey made the Lions' roster in 2023, appearing in 13 games for the NFC North champs. He played just 80 defensive snaps, seeing most of his work on special teams, finishing with 11 tackles (seven solo) and 12 kickoff returns for 244 scoreless yards.

Given full participant designation

The Lions listed Dorsey (knee) as a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Detroit didn't hold practice Wednesday, so this designation is just an estimate but is still encouraging news for Dorsey. The 25-year-old left the team's Week 8 win versus the Raiders with a knee injury but is now on track to make his return.

Questionable to return

Dorsey (knee) is questionable to return to Monday's game against the Raiders with a knee injury.

Dorsey left the game in the second half with a knee injury and is now questionable to return. Detroit now could be without a solid special teams contributor for the remainder of Monday's game.

Go to go Sunday

Dorsey (illness) is active for Sunday's matchup against Tampa Bay.

Dorsey was activated from injured reserve Saturday and will be active for his first game back. Dorsey operated exclusively on special teams during his lone appearance of the season, but he could see an increased defensive role over the next couple of weeks with Emmanuel Moseley (knee) on injured reserve.

Activated from IR

The Lions activated Dorsey (illness) from injured reserve Saturday.

Dorsey is listed as questionable for Sunday's contest against the Buccaneers, however he was a full participant in practice both Thursday and Friday. His return would be a welcome one for the Lions' secondary after the team placed fellow cornerback Emmanuel Moseley (knee) on IR.

Returns to practice

Dorsey (illness) was a full participant Wednesday after he was designated to return to practice from Detroit's injured reserve, Tim Twentyman of the team's official site reports.

Dorsey has been sidelined while dealing with an illness on Detroit's injured reserve over the last four games. The 25-year-old will have 21 days to practice before he must either be restored to the active roster or revert to IR for the remainder of the season. Dorsey's ability to immediately practice in full appears to indicate that he should return to in-game action relatively soon.

Placed on IR

Dorsey (illness) was placed on injured reserve by the Lions on Saturday.

Dorsey missed practice all week while dealing with an illness and he will now be forced to miss at least the next four games while on IR. The 25-year-old recorded three tackles while playing 24 snaps on special teams in Week 1 versus Kansas City.
