Former Penn State LB Jason Cabinda out Through Week 4

Jason Cabinda, who played linebacker at Penn State from 2014-17 and has been in the NFL since 2018, has been placed on the Detroit Lions’ reserve/PUP list.

Cabinda will now miss at least the first four weeks of the regular season.

Cabinda, along with defensive linemen Romeo Okwara and Josh Paschal, were put on the list Tuesday afternoon.

Cabinda, who began his career with the then-Oakland Raiders in 2018, is getting set to (eventually) begin his third full season with Detroit.

He started his career playing linebacker— his college position— before beginning the to transition to fullback before the 2020 season.

Cabinda has since found a niche at fullback and found a niche in the Lions’ backfield, but he’s run into some bad luck over the past few weeks.

Cabinda first landed on the PUP list with an ankle injury in late July, and Lions coach Dan Campbell suggested more than a week ago that Cabinda could miss Week 1. Now, Cabinda will be missing more than that.

Before the NFL, Cabinda was a key cog in Penn State’s run to the 2016 Big Ten championship and Rose Bowl berth, earning third-team All-Big Ten that year.

He then signed with Oakland as an un-drafted free agent in 2018.

He didn’t make the Raiders out of training camp in 2019, and signed with the Lions late in the season.

After two seasons, Cabinda then signed a two-year extension this past February.
