Here’s a look at the Detroit Lions’ snap counts from their Week 10 game against the Cleveland Browns.

Offense:

Quarterbacks

Matthew Stafford: 52 snaps (100%)

Running backs

Ameer Abdullah: 31 (60%)
Theo Riddick: 17 (33%)
Dwayne Washington: 4 (8%) — 16 special teams snaps (52%)
Jamal Agnew: 2 (4%)

Tight ends

Eric Ebron: 34 (65%)
Darren Fells: 27 (52%) — 12 (39%)
Michael Roberts: 14 (27%) — 10 (32%)

Wide receivers

Marvin Jones Jr.: 50 (96%)
Golden Tate: 36 (69%)
TJ Jones: 29 (56%) — 2 (6%)
Kenny Golladay: 11 (21%)
Jared Abbrederis: 5 (10%) — 21 (68%)

Offensive tackles

Rick Wagner: 52 (100%) — 6 (19%)
Taylor Decker 36 (69%)
Brian Mihalik: 16 (31%) — 6 (19%)
Emmett Cleary: 0 (0%) — 11 (35%)

Guards/centers

Travis Swanson: 52 (100%) — 6 (19%)
Graham Glasgow: 52 (100%) — 6 (19%)
Corey Robinson: 52 (100%) — 6 (19%)

Observations:

  • Ameer Abdullah saw a small uptick in snaps after getting benched because of the fumbles against the Packers. Dwayne Washington saw almost no playing time, but did make a clutch third down conversion.
  • Golden Tate continues to see a limited amount of playing time, likely due to his shoulder injury. However, his 69 percent participation rate was significantly higher than last week’s 51 percent.
  • Kenny Golladay was also a player who made the most out of his playing time. In just 11 snaps, he saw three targets and caught two balls for 65 yards.
  • Taylor Decker was someone the Lions were clearly keeping on snap count. Bouncing in and out of the lineup, Decker is clearly picking up where he left off last year. Detroit also smartly kept him out of special teams plays while they had a surplus of offensive lineman for the first time in awhile.

Defense:

Defensive end

Anthony Zettel: 59 (73%)
Cornelius Washington: 48 (59%) — 4 (13%)
Jacquies Smith: 39 (49%) — 2 (6%)
Jeremiah Valoaga: 22 (30%)

Defensive tackle

A’Shawn Robinson: 51 (63%) — 4 (13%)
Akeem Spence: 48 (59%)
Khyri Thornton: 30 (37%) — 4 (13%)
Jeremiah Ledbetter: 29 (36%) — 9 (29%)

Linebackers

Jarrad Davis: 81 (100%) — 4 (13%)
Tahir Whitehead: 63 (78%) — 4 (13%)
Paul Worrilow: 29 (36%) — 21 (68%)
Nick Bellore: 1 (1%) — 25 (81%)
Steve Longa: 0 (0%) — 21 (68%)

Cornerbacks

Darius Slay: 78 (96%) — 4 (13%)
Quandre Diggs: 52 (64%) — 12 (39%)
DJ Hayden: 48 (59%) — 8 (26%)
Nevin Lawson: 31 (38%) — 13 (42%)
Jamal Agnew: 0 (0%) — 21 (68%)

Safety

Glover Quin: 81 (100%) — 4 (13%)
Tavon Wilson: 75 (93%)
Miles Killebrew: 23 (28%) — 25 (81%)
Charles Washington: 1 (1%) — 21 (68%)

Observations:

  • First off, congratulations to Glover Quin and Jarrad Davis for playing all 81(!!!) defensive snaps. Just goes to show you how long the defense was on the field, considering the offense played in just 52 snaps. Rest them bodies, Quin and Davis.
  • This week in surprising boost in playing time: Khyri Thornton. Last week, he only played in 31 percent of snaps. This week, he was up to 37. Thornton returned from suspension back in Week 8 and only has four tackles in three games.
  • Unsurprisingly, Paul Worrilow saw a big chunk of playing time with the Browns going run-heavy and Jalen Reeves-Maybin out with an injury.
  • For the first time since Week 4, DJ Hayden saw more playing time than his counterpart, Nevin Lawson. Lawson has struggled in the past few weeks and saw his lowest percentage of playing time against the Browns.
