Lions RB/KR Stefan Logan will not handle returns in Week 17 against the Bears based on performance reasons.
Logan has struggled all season long in the return game for Detroit, mustering up a 22.1 average on 24 kick returns with a long return of just 40 yards. Last week against the Falcons was the final straw, though. Logan accidentally signaled for a fair catch on a low line-drive punt after he previously downed a kickoff at the four-yard line when he thought he was in the end zone. WR Mike Thomas will likely handle returns this week. Thu, Dec 27, 2012 01:58:00 PM

Lions RB Stefan Logan (ankle) is inactive for the Saturday's preseason game.

X-rays to Logan's ankle came back negative, but he hasn't been cleared to resume practicing. Mikel Leshoure (hamstring, Achilles') will be making his NFL debut if he enters the game. Louis Delmas (knee), Jonathan Scott (knee) and G/C Bill Nagy are also listed as inactive.

X-rays of Lions RB Stefan Logan's right ankle came back negative.

Logan went down untouched in Friday's game against the Ravens. "We’ll see," coach Jim Schwartz said. "It didn’t look great on film according to our doctors, but Logan’s a pretty tough guy. We’ll just see how that comes out." A return specialist, Logan could be in line for a small role in Detroit's backfield to begin the year as it waits for Mikel Leshoure (suspension) and Jahvid Best (concussions) to return.

Lions RB Stefan Logan was carted to the locker room in Friday's preseason game with a right ankle injury.

Lined up in the backfield for a handoff from Matthew Stafford, Logan lost his footing, falling to the ground while exposing Stafford to a big hit. Logan walked off the field with relatively little assistance, but looked to be in a great deal of pain on the sideline. A serious injury would further decimate a Lions' running back corps that's perilously low on healthy bodies. Logan had zero carries before going down, and just one catch for two yards.

The Detroit News calls RB/KR Stefan Logan "one of the early standouts" of Lions camp.

RBs coach Sam Gash agrees. "Your eyes are not deceiving you," Gash said. "(Logan's) got a similar skill set to Jahvid (Best), similar to Darren Sproles. He's stronger with the ball than people think because he's such a small guy. But he has a fearlessness about him that I like as a running back." Making the conversion from receiver, the 31-year-old former CFL standout could find himself on the radar in deeper leagues if Best (concussions) isn't ready for Week 1.

According to MLive.com, the Lions are going "all in" on converting WR/KR Stefan Logan to running back.

Logan has been working exclusively with the running backs in the early days of camp. It's either an indication the Lions believe Logan had no chance to make the team as a receiver, or they're majorly concerned about Jahvid Best and Mike Leshoure's return from injury. Regardless of where he plays, Logan won't make a fantasy impact in 2012.

Lions RB/KR Stefan Logan is hoping for a bigger role on offense in 2012.

The 31-year-old Logan was a star runner in the CFL and for small-school South Dakota, but has carried the ball just 24 times in three NFL seasons. The reality is, he may not even hold onto his punt and kick return duties with second-round WR Ryan Broyles now in the fold. Logan will have to earn his roster spot in camp.
Sat, Jun 2, 2012 09:36:00 AM

MLive.com believes KR/PR Stefan Logan's roster spot is in danger after the Lions spent a second-round pick on WR Ryan Broyles.

Logan had the league's second worst punt return average last season (8.1 yards), and was in the middle of the pack on kickoffs (25.2). He also put the ball on the ground six times. Logan's fate could be tied to Broyles' (torn ACL) health, but he'd be an easy $615,000 in savings for the Lions.

The Detroit Free Press suggests KR Stefan Logan is locked in as a "valuable, cost effective" fifth receiver for the Lions.

The diminutive but explosive Logan proved to be one of the league's top returners in 2010, averaging 12.1 yards on 30 punts and 26.3 yards on 55 kickoffs. Derrick Williams, Bryant Johnson, and Tim Toone will compete for the No. 4 job. Johnson, the fourth-highest paid offensive player on the team at $3.2 million, is the obvious candidate for release.

Stefan Logan rushed five times for 30 yards in Sunday's upset of the Packers.

The Lions unveiled a new wrinkle in this one as Logan served as a "change of pace" runner. The joystick's runs came on handoffs, not direct snaps. At just 5'7/185, he got lost behind the line and showed his usual quickness. Logan isn't an option outside of return leagues, but his usage here is just another reason to avoid the Lions' backfield.

Lions KR/PR Stefan Logan got practice reps at running back Wednesday.

The Lions are desperate for healthy bodies in the backfield, so Logan is brushing up. "The Joystick" goes just 5'7/185, though, and he's not a realistic option. Maurice Morris, Kevin Smith and Jerome Felton would handle all the running back reps if Jahvid Best (turf toe) is out.
Thu, Sep 30, 2010 12:26:00 PM

Lions claimed KR/PR Stefan Logan off waivers from the Steelers.

The addition allowed Detroit to part with overpaid Dennis Northcutt. Though they'll still have to pay Northcutt, Logan is a better version of him, having finished second in the AFC in yards per kickoff return last season.
Sun, Sep 5, 2010 06:48:00 PM

Steelers waived KR Stefan Logan, LB Patrick Bailey, DB Da'Mon Cromartie-Smith, WR Tyler Grisham, DL Steve McLendon, and DL RaShon "Sunny" Harris.

Logan tallied nearly 1,750 return yards last season, but he was hurt by his inability to contribute on offense. Sixth-rounder Antonio Brown is the favorite to take over on punts and kickoffs this season.

Beat writer Ed Bouchette thinks that Stefan Logan is in an "uphill fight" to keep his roster spot.

"The Joystick" was one of the better kick returners around last year, but he isn't flashing well in camp this year and the Steelers drafted some other options in Emmanuel Sanders and Antonio Brown. It's turning into a bad numbers game for Logan.
Mon, Aug 16, 2010 10:14:00 AM

The Steelers' kick return duties are considered Stefan Logan's to lose over the next month.

Logan finished second in the AFC in kickoff return average last season, but he'll need to prove in preseason action that he's far superior to rookies Emmanuel Sanders and Antonio Brown. Logan contributes nothing offensively, and teams are always looking to maximize roster spots.
