Backup QB Tim Boyle will take first team reps this week and possibly start against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.
Boyle went undrafted out of Eastern Kentucky and spent three seasons with the Green Bay Packers. He has four career pass attempts which all came on November 24, 2019. He has been on the field for 41 offensive snaps in his career and 22 of those resulted in kneel downs which is why he has career stats of 18 carries for -16 yards.
Are you ready to host Tim Boyle for Thanksgiving dinner? Because if Goff's oblique doesn't heal in the next eight days Boyle is probably going to crash whatever family gathering you have planned.
What happened to David Blough, who has apparently been backing up Goff all season? We may find out all of this and more on Thanksgiving.
We really are going to find out if the 0-8-1 Detroit Lions can do worse.
