Jared Goff still out; The Detroit Lions are preparing to start Tim Boyle

Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff did not attend the open part of training on Friday, paving the way for Tim Boyle to start his quarterback career.

Lions coach Dan Campbell said before training that Goff would test his injured slant in a pre-practice workout, and would only train if “we feel he can throw.”

Campbell said he planned to make his quarterback decision for Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns on Friday, and he would not make the decision until game day.

“I just think, man, when you start talking about quarterback, it’s a little different,” Campbell said. “When it’s like, ‘Man, this receiver could play here,’ they’re hard enough. When you talk about a quarterback, I think it’s going to be your reps, you’re locked in, you’re ready. to go. That’s all. “

Boyle, in his first season with the Lions after three with the Green Bay Packers, took first-team training reps Wednesday and Thursday and worked with the No. 1 unit again during the open part of training on Friday.

He has never started a game in his NFL career where he has completed 3 of 4 for 15 yards in 11 appearances with the Packers.

Goff injured his side on a deep pass to Kalif Raymond in the first quarter of last week’s loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. He finished the match but had one of the worst days of his career. He had minus-1 yard passes in the first quarter, was 11 of 20 for 54 yards in regulation and finished the game 14 of 25 for 114 yards.
