ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Lions have put rookie tight end T.J. Hockenson on injured reserve with an ankle injury.

Coach Matt Patricia announced the move Monday. The Lions took Hockenson in the first round of this year’s draft. He has caught 32 passes for 367 yards and two touchdowns.

The loss of Hockenson is another blow to an offense that has been without quarterback Matthew Stafford and recently put backup quarterback Jeff Driskel on IR.

Hockenson caught six passes for 131 yards and a touchdown in Detroit’s season opener against Arizona. That was his only 100-yard game.

The Lions play at Minnesota this weekend.

Browns QB Mayfield OK after hurting hand in loss to Steelers

BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield is not expected to miss any time after injuring his right hand in Sunday’s loss to Pittsburgh.

Mayfield played the second half with a glove helping protect and support his hand after he struck it on the facemask of Steelers linebacker Bud Dupree while throwing a deep incompletion just before halftime.

Browns coach Freddie Kitchens said Monday that he was prepared to play backup Garrett Gilbert in the second half, but X-rays taken on Mayfield at halftime were negative.

Kitchens said Mayfield “should be fine” and able to start this week when the Browns (5-7) host the Cincinnati Bengals.

The second-year QB completed 18 of 32 passes for 196 yards with one touchdown and one interception against the Steelers. He went 8 of 15 for 98 yards in the second half. Mayfield’s final pass was picked off by former Browns cornerback Joe Haden.
