Tate recorded two receptions for 13 yards in the Lions' Week 2 loss to the Titans.

EDGE Analysis

Tate was the second-most targeted player in the entire game, but finished with just the ninth-most receptions. Through two games, he's logged just 54 receiving yards and is yet to find the end zone. He appears to have taken a backseat to Marvin Jones as QB Matthew Stafford's top target, but will look to get back on track Week 3 against Green Bay.

Tate (ankle) caught all seven of his targets for 41 yards in Sunday's 39-35 win at Indianapolis.

EDGE Analysis

Tate was used primarily on shorter routes, as he had just a long catch of 11 yards. Meanwhile, Marvin Jones caught four of 10 targets for 85 yards, leading Detroit in targets and receiving yardage. Matthew Stafford and the entire Lions' passing game has really clicked since the middle of last season, so there's no reason to think that Tate won't be a valuable fantasy commodity this season.

Tate (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Indianapolis, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports

EDGE Analysis

Limited at Wednesday's practice, Tate returned to full participation Thursday, confirming that his ankle issue is minor. He should be ready to fill his usual role, likely playing the vast majority of offensive snaps in a matchup with a banged-up Indianapolis secondary.

Tate (ankle) was a full practice participant Thursday, MLive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tate landed on the Lions' initial injury report of the 2016 season due to an ankle injury, which foisted limited participation upon him. With a return to full activity just one day later, he's in line to work as the Lions' No. 1 receiving option Sunday at Indianapolis, provided he emerges unscathed from Week 1 drills.

Tate (ankle) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tate was held out of the final preseason game due to his status as a veteran, but an ankle injury will follow him into the regular season. His ability to fit in some reps Wednesday indicates that the Lions are taking it easy with their No. 1 wideout. On the other hand, interested parties should keep an eye on the wideout as the weekend approaches.

Tate is not expected to play during Thursday's preseason finale against the Bills, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tate, along with fellow starters Matthew Stafford and Marvin Jones, doesn't figure to see the field Thursday as the Lions prepare for their Week 1 matchup against the Colts. Tate caught three balls for 29 yards on five targets in his last preseason game, and should be used plenty in the offense throughout the regular season after the departure of Calvin Johnson.

Tate caught three passes for 29 yards on five targets, adding one carry for six yards, in Saturday's preseason game against the Ravens.

EDGE Analysis

With TE Eric Ebron (ankle) still unavailable, Matthew Stafford honed in on Tate, Marvin Jones (six targets) and Anquan Boldin (five targets) during a rough first half for the starting offense. Tate is still going to start and play the vast majority of snaps, but he'll probably spend less time in the slot than he did last season, as Boldin is at his best working over the middle.

Tate returned to practice on Tuesday, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

Tate (undisclosed) has not practiced since Detroit's second preseason game Aug. 18 versus Cincinnati, but is nearing a return, MLive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's very unclear as to when, where or how Tate was injured, but the injury is not serious. Though he technically "missed" both Saturday and Sunday's practices, he was present at both sessions and witnessed running on Sunday night without the aid of a brace nor sleeve. Ultimately, Tate's Week 1 availability is not in question and he should return to the fold in the coming days. Until then, TJ Jones will likely fill in with the first-team offense.
