Draft Scout Zach Zenner News
10/20/15 - RB Zach Zenner (chest) was placed on reserve/injured by the Lions Tuesday (Oct. 21).
10/18/15 - RB Zach Zenner suffered a chest injury during the first half and did not return. It was a lost opportunity for the rookie with Joique Bell out with ankle injury and Ameer Abdullah struggling to hold onto the ball. Zenner, who earned a roster spot with a dazzling preseason, had three carries for 15 yards. Coach Jim Caldwell did not have an update on Zenner's status afterward.
09/06/15 - RB Zach Zenner was the only undrafted rookie to make the 53-man roster.
08/30/15 - RB Zach Zenner continued to impress and appears locked into a spot on the 53-man roster as the fourth tailback. Highlighted by a 41-yarder in the second quarter, Zenner finished with eight carries for 85 yards and a touchdown. The score came on a tough 3-yard run.
"He's a guy that doesn't wow you without pads on and then you go put the pads on and you play real football," quarterback Matthew Stafford said. "And he does the right thing in protection, has pretty sure hands and then when he gets the ball in his hands when he's running the ball, he does a great job. He's got really good patience, good vision and he's obviously a big kid."
Zenner ran for 2,000-plus yards in each of the last three years. He also had 81 yards from scrimmage last week against Washington and 55 rushing yards two weeks ago against the Jets, but said he's not sure where he stands on the roster.
"I'm not in the decision room," he said. "I know in this league, there's so many variables, so it's hard for me to say."
08/14/15 - RB Zach Zenner had 13 carries for 55 yards and showed an ability to keep his feet and body moving forward.
