Jared Goff’s status in doubt vs. Seahawks after he misses Lions practice with knee injury

Detroit Free Press

Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff did not practice Wednesday because of a lingering knee injury he suffered against the Arizona Cardinals, leaving his status in doubt for Sunday’s road game against the Seattle Seahawks.

“Yeah, it’s still there,” Goff said after sitting out practice. “We’re still dealing with it. It’s day-by-day, but it’s still there. I still feel it and working through it.”

It’s yet another in a series of obstacles for Goff. He cleared COVID-19 protocols Monday, a week after he was placed on the reserve/COVID list and missed last week’s 20-16 loss at Atlanta.

“It’s definitely a challenge,” Goff said of missing time on the COVID list, “but we’ve had challenges like this every week. I think we’ve had a challenge when (D’Andre) Swift’s been out and (Jamaal Williams has) been out.

“We had a challenge when we beat Arizona. On defense, we had a lot of guys out. We had (safety) Will Harris playing corner, that’s a challenge. But it’s all stuff that you can overcome and stuff that we’re looking to overcome.”

Goff had his best game of the season in the 30-12 win over the Cardinals. If he can’t play in Seattle, backup Tim Boyle would get the start. Boyle made his second NFL start in the loss to the Falcons and played well but threw a game-ending interception from the Falcons’ 9-yard line.
