Lions Defense Will Have Desmond Trufant Back Sunday

Detroit Lions cornerback Desmond Trufant (hamstring) is expected back on the field for Sundays contest against New Orleans. Having been without Trufant for the past two weeks due to a hamstring ailment, Detroits defense should simultaneously get a boost from his return, while also not having to worry about covering All-Pro receiver Michael Thomas (ankle). Trufant was brought aboard this off-season from Atlanta, having become extremely familiar with quarterback Drew Brees and many of his pass-catching options. Despite that, the Lions defense holds little fantasy intrigue this week with Alvin Kamara running wild out of the backfield. A strong performance Sunday would give the team appeal for when they return in Week 6 against Jacksonville.

Desmond Trufant Ruled Out For Sunday

Detroit Lions cornerback Desmond Trufant (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals. Trufant was able to get in a couple limited sessions after not participating in Wednesday's practice, though it appears he is not quite ready yet. It's a blow to a Lions' pass defense that has surrendered five passing touchdowns in two games. Cardinals wideout DeAndre Hopkins will now likely go toe-to-toe with rookie cornerback Jeff Okudah, which is a boost to Hopkins' already elite fantasy value this week.

Desmond Trufant Signing With Lions

The Detroit Lions are signing cornerback Desmond Trufant to a two-year, $21 million deal on Wednesday, according to a source. The deal contains $14 million in guarantees. Trufant is on the back end of his career and will turn 30 this September, but the former first-round pick of the Falcons in 2013 will bring a veteran presence to a Lions secondary. He was a Pro Bowler in 2015 but played in just nine games last season, tallying 18 tackles (13 solo) and four interceptions. Trufant has 13 career interceptions in 97 games played, all with Atlanta.
