Lions head coach Dan Campbell said Friday that Seibert (hip) won't return from injured reserve this season, Benjamin Raven of MLive.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Seibert is first eligible to return from IR this weekend against the Vikings after missing the requisite three games with a right hip injury, but since he's not even in condition to resume practicing at this stage, the Lions don't have confidence he'll be able to make it back before Week 18. While Seibert has been sidelined, the Lions have used three kickers in as many games. With Ryan Santoso and Aldrick Rosas having since been moved off the 53-man roster, the job looks like it belongs to Riley Patterson for the time being. The undrafted rookie out of Memphis connected on both of his extra-point attempts last week in his NFL debut in the Lions' 16-14 loss to the Bears.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
A fifth-round pick last year, Seibert was one of three kickers with a better conversion rate on FGs than PATs. He didn't have many long-distance chances, but scouting reports out of Oklahoma suggested leg strength wasn't a problem. Seibert did go nine of 12 from 40-49 yards, and he enters 2020 with good job security on a team that hopes to get more out of its talented offense under a new coaching staff.
The Browns spent a 2019 fifth-round pick on Seibert to compete with Greg Joseph, who converted 17 of 20 field-goal attempts and 25 of 29 extra-point tries last season. The draft capital suggests Seibert has the tiebreaker, but he wasn't selected early enough to be handed a job. His final two preseason games separated him from Joseph, and Seifert was chosen to the team's kicker in 2019. Volume shouldn't be a problem for the victor - Baker Mayfield, Odell Beckham Jr. and Nick Chubb should see to that.
