When the Detroit Lions signed D.J. Chark this offseason, he was expected to come in and lead a young and inexperienced wide receiving corps. That idea was cut short when Chark went on IR following Detroit's Week 3 loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

DJ Chark Injury Update

Chark has been working his way back from that ankle injury ever since. The Lions did bring Chark back to practice today, which is exciting news since they now have 21 days to officially activate him.

While Chark's absence has given more opportunities to other guys like Amon-Ra St. Brown and Kalif Raymond, he will still be welcomed back into a Detroit offense that seemed unstoppable out of the gate but has cooled down since.

Chark was making an impact before going down, notching 7 catches for 98 yards and 1 touchdown, so he'll try to get back in Jared Goff's good graces.

The 3-6 Lions are looking forward to Chark's return in the coming weeks as they prepare for their Week 11 clash with the 7-2 New York Giants. Detroit is currently listed as a 3-point road underdog for that game on FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
