  • Lions' Josh Paschal: Looks good for Week 17

    Paschal (hand) was not listed on the Lions' injury report Tuesday, Eric Woodyard of reports.

    Paschal was forced out of Sunday's win at Minnesota early with a hand injury, but it doesn't look like the issue will force him to miss any extended time. He figures to resume a rotational role on Detroit's defensive line Saturday.

  • Lions' Josh Paschal: Exits game with hand injury

    Paschal (hand) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Vikings.

    Paschal did not record a stat before exiting Sunday's game. He's operated as the backup defensive end behind Aidan Hutchinson and John Cominsky, and in Paschal's absence, Romeo Okwara figures to fill in that role.

  • Lions' Josh Paschal: Cleared to play Sunday

    Paschal (knee) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Ravens.

    Paschal, a 2022 second-round pick, suffered a knee injury during the Lions' preseason opener against the Chiefs and was placed on injured reserve. He was designated to return from IR during Week 6 prep and returned to practice, but he wasn't activated until Saturday of Week 7. As a rookie, Paschal recorded 10 tackles, including two sacks, across 10 appearances.

  • Lions' Josh Paschal: Returns from IR

    Paschal (knee) was activated from injured reserve Saturday.

    The 2022 second-round pick out of Kentucky has a chance to appear in his first game since the Lions' Week 1 win over the Chiefs, as he's questionable for Sunday's contest at Baltimore. Throughout his rookie year, Paschal appeared in 10 games and recorded 10 total tackles, two tackles for loss and two sacks.

  • Lions' Josh Paschal: Questionable for Sunday at Ravens

    Paschal (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at Baltimore, Eric Woodyard of reports.

    Paschal was designated to return from his stint on the injured reserve list a week ago, but it's still not clear he's ready to come back going into the weekend. If he's activated for Week 7, he'll step back into a rotational role on the edge for Detroit.

  • Lions' Josh Paschal: Designated to return

    Paschal (knee) was designated to return from injured reserve Friday, Jenna Laine of reports.

    The 23-year-old was placed on injured reserve after Detroit's Week 1 win over Kansas City, and he was able to return to limited participation in practice Friday. His 21-day window to be activated to the Lions' active roster has opened, but he won't be able to suit up for this Sunday's game against Tampa Bay.

  • Lions' Josh Paschal: Placed on IR

    Paschal (knee) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

  • Lions' Josh Paschal: Ruled out

    Paschal (knee) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

    Paschal missed Friday's practice with a knee injury, and he's since been ruled out for Sunday's contest. The 23-year-old recorded three total tackles, including one tackle for loss, during Detroit's Week 1 victory over Kansas City. Paschal's role as a rotational edge rusher will most likely be filled by Levi Onwuzurike against Seattle.

  • Lions' Josh Paschal: Two sacks during rookie season

    Paschal recorded 16 tackles and two sacks over 10 games in 2022.

    While a sports hernia injury delayed the debut of the second-round rookie out of Kentucky, Paschal handled over 81 percent of the defensive snaps in each of his first three career games only to suffer a knee injury in Week 10. After returning in Week 13 -- one week after James Houston burst onto the scene -- Paschal topped 28 percent of the defensive snaps only once, though he did flash his upside during with a two-sack performance in Week 16 against the Panthers. It's not clear how the edge rotation will look in 2023, but Paschal figures to be a key piece of an improving Detroit defensive front one way or the other.
