Detroit Lions RB Ameer Abdullah and RB Theo Riddick could be on the field together at times, according to Tim Twentyman of DetroitLions.com.
The Lions got running back Theo Riddick into some action in their preseason game on Friday against the Patriots. Riddick has been wearing a no-contact jersey for a while now after undergoing two wrist surgeries in the offseason. However, the Lions wanted him to get some work with the first-teamers so they rolled him out there on Friday. He did not make a big impact, getting one rushing attempt for no gain and one target that went incomplete, but his presence indicates he should be ready to go for week one. Riddick is a nice change of pace back for the Lions, who will deploy Ameer Abdullah as their every down back. Riddick will be used primarily as a pass-catching back, making him very attractive in PPR formats. He holds little value otherwise, however.

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick could see his role expand even more inside the red zone this year, according to Tim Twentyman of DetroitLions.com.
Lions.com's Tim Twentyman thinks Detroit Lions running back Theo Riddick is one of the best red-zone threats in all of the league, and offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter can create a ton of matchup problems with Riddick down near the stripe. Of Riddick's five receiving touchdowns in 2016, all of them were in the red zone and three were from one yard out. It all sounds nice and good, but Ameer Abdullah is the main ball carrier in Detroit and Zach Zenner will also fight Riddick for playing time. However, Detroit must find a way to replace all the red-zone looks that Anquan Boldin gobbled up last year, and Riddick is a good bet for some of that work. Riddick will likely be touchdown-dependent as an RB3/4 in PPR leagues in 2017.
Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) expects to be ready for the start of training camp but it is not known if he will be limited during the early part of camp. Riddick's surgically repaired wrists are structurally sound, according to a source.
Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick will be used mainly in the passing game if RB Ameer Abdullah is healthy, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, and Birkett believes Riddick could approach 1,000 yards from scrimmage with around 700 coming as a receiver.
Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) was running and working out on the sidelines during practice Wednesday, May 31, and had the ball in his left hand because his right hand is heavily wrapped.
Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) is unlikely to do much at OTAs as the team has a history of bringing back established players from injury slowly, per ESPN's Michael Rothstein.
Detroit Lions running back Theo Riddick (wrists) is limited during organized team activities, according to head coach Jim Caldwell. Riddick played in just 10 games in 2016 after having surgery on both of his wrists late in the year. It's a good sign that he's at least limited, though, and barring any setbacks he should be good to go for the regular season as the pass-catching back behind Ameer Abdullah in Detroit's offense.
Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) underwent surgery on both of his wrists after the season, according to sources. Riddick is expected to be a full participant in organized team activities later this spring.
