Roberts returned four kickoffs for 76 yards during Saturday's playoff game in Seattle.

EDGE Analysis

Per usual, Roberts was near-exclusively contained to special teams on Saturday, but wasn't able to break off any long kickoff returns. The seventh-year veteran will now hit the open market as an unrestricted free agent and likely won't have a problem landing a job with a team in need of a return man.

Roberts (shoulder) is listed as active Saturday at Seattle, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Roberts has totaled just 15 offensive snaps over the last two games, a stretch in which he's hauled in one of two targets for 14 yards. Instead, his relevance resides as a returner, as he finished the regular season eighth in average kickoff return (22.6) and third in average punt return (12.3) among qualified candidates.

Roberts (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Saturday's playoff game against the Seahawks.

EDGE Analysis

Roberts was limited throughout practice this week, but considering his shoulder problem didn't prevent him from suiting up while injured last Sunday, it seems like he'll be available again this weekend. That being said, with just one catch over Detroit's past four games, Roberts doesn't represent much of a fantasy threat heading into an already-intimidating matchup against the Seahawks secondary.

Roberts (shoulder) practiced on a limited basis Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

If the Lions were required to release an injury report Tuesday, Roberts wouldn't have practiced, according to Tim Twentyman of the team's official site. Although his progression to limited one day later is an encouraging sign, he donned a red "no-contact" jersey during the session. There's a good chance he sustains such activity throughout the week, which would leave his status for Saturday's wild-card game at Seattle in flux.

Roberts (shoulder) didn't participate in practice Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Roberts missed Detroit's first practice of the week last week due to his shoulder injury and ultimately was able to play in the team's Week 17 matchup with Green Bay. It remains unclear how he suffered the injury but given he played through the injury last week he likely will once again come Saturday's tilt against the Seahawks. He shouldn't be expected to have much of a role beyond returning kickoffs and punts.

Roberts (shoulder) is listed as active Sunday against the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

Aside from a limited showing Friday, Roberts didn't practice in advance of the regular season finale. In any case, he's unlikely to serve as much more than the Lions' nominal returner on kickoffs and punts.

Roberts (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game against the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

Roberts didn't practice prior to putting together a limited session Friday, so it's unclear if he'll be available for Sunday evening's most-important tussle. If his shoulder injury impacts his status, TJ Jones could enjoy an expanded role as Detroit's fourth wideout.

Roberts didn't practice Wednesday due to a shoulder injury.

EDGE Analysis

It's unclear when Roberts suffered the injury, since he didn't appear limited in Monday's loss to Dallas. His main role with Detroit is as a returner and they'll be forced to use Dwayne Washington and Golden Tate as their main return men if Roberts is held out.

Roberts caught his only target for 14 yards Monday night versus the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Roberts served in a reserve role at wide receiver and did most of his work on special teams.

Roberts (shoulder) returned to Monday's tilt with the Cowboys, Kyle Meinke of MLive Media reports.

EDGE Analysis

Roberts and fellow wideout Anquan Boldin (finger) are both back out on the field to start the second half, a reassuring sign for the Lions' offense. The shoulder aliment will be something to keep an eye on, however.
