Draft Scout Theo Riddick News
09/22/16 - RB Theo Riddick will start this week and get the bulk of the snaps, but Dwayne Washington is in line for an expanded role as the No. 2 back with Ameer Abdullah's foot injury. Riddick had a career-high 11 carries last week, but he's still best suited to play a receiving role out of the backfield.
09/11/16 - RB Theo Riddick left the game in the third quarter to be evaluated for a head injury but returned with 6:19 left in regulation.
09/09/16 - RB Theo Riddick agreed to a three-year contract extension worth $12.75 million, the NFL Network reported. The 25-year-old Riddick, a sixth-round pick in 2013 out of Notre Dame, tied for the NFL lead among running backs last season with 80 catches for 697 yards and three touchdowns. He had 43 rushes for 133 yards, and is expected to play as the Lions' No. 2 rusher behind Ameer Abdullah this season.
08/02/16 - RB Theo Riddick has missed both of the Lions' padded practices with an undisclosed injury. Riddick's role as the Lions' pass-catching back is secure, but his absence has given the team a longer look at big backs Stevan Ridley and Zach Zenner.
12/21/15 - RB Theo Riddick caught two more passes for 27 yards, giving him 69 receptions for 605 yards on the season. It is easy to see why he is one of QB Matthew Stafford's favorite targets. Riddick took a check-down pass from Stafford in the left flat and used a juke move on LB Dannell Ellerbe that left the Saints' defender checking his ankles. Riddick gained 21 yards on a play that should have been stopped for 5.
