The organised team activities (OTAs) for the Detroit Lions have started, and linebacker Derrick Barnes has good news.

Detroit Lions Week 17 injury report: Derrick Barnes, Jerry Jacobs return to  practice - Pride Of Detroit

Barnes was back on the pitch for the first day of team practice at the Lions’ Allen Park complex, following his critical absence from the NFC Championship game due to a knee injury.

Go Back to the Field

Barnes is seen enthusiastically engaging in drills in team photos, indicating that his recuperation is progressing. The Lions will greatly benefit from Barnes’ presence after he was forced to watch from the sidelines following his early exit in the NFC Championship game, which saw the team narrowly miss making their first Super Bowl trip.

Vital Playoff Outing

Barnes was essential to the Lions’ postseason success prior to his injury. His highlight play on his growing resume, the crucial interception that kept the Lions ahead of the Tampa Bay Bucs, will live on in his memory. Barnes became a vital member of Detroit’s defence in the 2023 regular season by recording a career-high 81 tackles, five quarterback hits, and a sack.


The Lions’ defence appears to get stronger now that Barnes is back in the lineup, especially in light of their disappointing postseason run. In order for the squad to build on its success from the previous season and make another deep playoff run, his recuperation and return to full health will be essential. In the hopes that his injury problems are completely behind him, coaches and fans will be closely monitoring his performance throughout the off-season and into the regular season.
