A New Look For Riley Reiff in Lions Week One Win
Parkston native and former Iowa Hawkeye Riley Reiff is still looking for some quality time on the offensive line with the Detroit Lions this season, but he was involved in a Lions scoring play in the NFL opener from a different spot.
The first round draft pick was lined up at tight end on running back Joique Bell’s 1-yard TD run in a 27-23 win over the Rams.
Lions Coach Jim Schwartz told the Detroit Free Press:
“We actually had Riley Reiff in at tight end on that package, and we needed to get the ball in.”
Reiff is backing up veteran Jeff Backus at left tackle. The 1-1 Lions host the Titans Sunday.
