Calhoun is a "distant fifth" on the Lions' depth chart, the Detroit Free Press reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

There won't be a room for a fifth back on the Detroit roster, so Calhoun is, apparently, in serious danger of not making the team. He may need a strong showing Saturday against Cleveland to be on the roster come Week 1.
Calhoun rushed seven times for 12 yards Sunday against the Bengals, and also coughed the ball up once, though it was recovered by Detroit.

Calhoun received only two carries Thursday night in the Lions' preseason opener.

The less heralded Artose Pinner and Aveion Cason each received five carries, which makes it look as though Calhoun has some work to do not only to be fantasy relevant, but to simply make the team. He has said that his knee is 100 percent, so the lack of carries wouldn't seem to be attributable to injury, unless his health has been exaggerated.
Calhoun told the Lions' official site that his knee feels "110 times better" than it has since he underwent knee surgery in 2006.

"I'm not compensating at all," said Calhoun. "I'm really just tired and my legs are tired. As far as my knee and it's health - it feels fine." Calhoun might not be in the immediate mix for the starting spot in the Detroit backfield, but he does have some upside. He will need to impress in the preseason to secure a roster spot over Artose Pinner and Aveion Cason, both of whom are probably more valuable than Calhoun on special teams.
Calhoun told that Detroit Free Press he feels confident that his injured knee has healed and that he feels "great."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013

There was no outlook written for Brian Calhoun.

2008

Injuries have limited Calhoun, a former third round pick, to just 14 career carries over the past two seasons. However, he enters 2008 fully healthy, and his running skills fit Detroit's newly installed zone-scheme well. He's also a good receiver out of the backfield. Since his only competition for touches is the thoroughly mediocre Tatum Bell and a rookie (Kevin Smith) who is coming off a 450-carry season, it's possible Calhoun gets an opportunity to be the Lions' feature back at some point. He's a deep sleeper with upside if things break his way.

2007

With the additions of Tatum Bell and T.J. Duckett, Calhoun likely won't see much time. He's coming off an ACL tear, but with Kevin Jones (foot) status uncertain entering the season, they will keep him around at the very least, but don't expect much out of him this year.

2006

The Lions third round pick figures to be a solid complement to Kevin Jones, working primarily as a third down back. He’s got the skill set for the job, combining soft hands with good speed, acceleration and elusiveness. His size (5-9, 200) may prevent him from being seen as anything other than a third-down back, however. Two factors give him some very nice upside: Jones’ potential health issues, and Mike Martz’s impact on the Detroit offense. Jones owners especially should do everything they can to land him.
