Lions injury report is out

Posted by ttwentyman on November 30, 2011 – 5:01 pm

Safety Louis Delmas and corner Chris Houston remain out of practice for the Lions as the team continued on-field preparations for Sunday’s game against the Saints Wednesday.

Both Delmas and Houston suffered knee injuries in the Lions’ 27-15 loss to the Packers on Thanksgiving and haven’t practiced since.

Running back Kevin Smith had a helmet and stretched with his teammates in the early portion of practice open to the media, but left the field before individual position drills and did not return.

He told media members that he returned to field after they left but that was just to run along the sideline with trainers.

Smith was listed as “No practice” on the team’s official injury report.

Defensive end Lawrence Jackson also missed practice Wednesday. He’s missed the Lions’ last two games with a thigh injury.

LB Doug Hogue was not at practice due to an undisclosed illness.

Corner Brandon McDonald was back at practice in a limited capacity after suffering a thigh injury against the Packers. McDonald was running off to the side with trainers after missing practicing on Tuesday. He was listed as limited on the official report.

Defensive end Willie Young (ankle) was also limited.

Full participants in practice were safety Chris Harris (ankle), receiver Calvin Johnson (ankle) and receiver Maurice Staovall (shoulder).

In a roster move announced Wednesday, the LionsĀ  signed WR Marcus Harris to the practice squad and put WR Nate Hughes on the practice squad reserve injured list.

    After watching the Saints on Monday, the Lions will not win, and would not win if Suh were playing. Vikings should be beaten without Suh. The suspension does not affect the season’s record.

    we are running out of healthy players ! whats going on with these guys ? we can’t beat the saints with brandon mc donald as a starter ! please search the waiver wire . coach has done a great job , but he has to have some healthy bodies out there . and last i want to say to scott linahan , let stafford go down the feild ! run some deep posts , they cant stop us . look back at the 2nt half vs cowboys . calvin johnson made catches over 3 defenders . put the ball HIGH enough so only johnson can go get it !! GO DEEP !!!!

    Hopefully Delmas Or Houston can go, Wright is gonna match up with Colston but I agree Macdonald can not match up with moore at all. Hopefully Smith is ready to go he has shown excellent promise his first couple games, Stafford needs to take shots early its what hes good at, I hope he is finally able to take off the gloves that to me has bee the biggest issue. I know he is protecting a fractured right index finger, but we won games last year with Shaun Hill as our quarterback, and though hes not an elite level talent like stafford is, Hill at 100 percent is far better than stafford at 80 percent. To piggy back off of I do want to see him take shots downfield early as I said but i think little screens to burleson and Pettigrew or whomever early mixed in with a deep shot here and there will do wonders for staffords confidence and though i do beleive he will get over this as he gets more maturity under his belt he gets really rattled a lot of times and starts playing bad but always comes out in the second half calm and collected and usually puts on a passing clinic minus the chicago game. Even thanksgiving day wasnt bad in the second half, it was just an ugly discombobulated game for injuries and suhs idiotic mistake which i beleive he will learn from, All in all we werent gonna win a super bowl this season. We know of course i beleive we can win every game, but right now we are just to young. Next season and season after that though. Our Detroit Lions will make some noise.

    There’s only 1 quarterback on our team who can get the ball to Johnson where only he can catch it, and that guy is Shaun Hill. Stafford couldn’t throw the ball into the ocean if he was standing on the beach with that bum finger. But, alas, Schwartz won’t make the call to sit him down. The only QB on our team to ever throw 3 INT’s in a game in the past 3 years is Stafford. He is a naturally inaccurate passer made even more inaccurate by a broken index finger. He should have been benched the last 3 games. Hill can throw it deep enough. He should be starting right now.

    G. Money, you must be crazy in the hands to type something like that. First of all, two years ago, Stafford was a rookie, so of course he’s going to make mistakes. Second, how many interceptions did Tom Brady throw against Buffalo at the beginning of the season in week 3? I know at least one, if not two, were pick six’s. Or how about last season against Buffalo when Shaun Hill had the chance to even the score late in the fourth quarter by going for two and he threw it out of the back of the endzone? I’m not sure, but I don’t think it counts if the ball-boy catches the ball next to the seats. Stafford is the best quarterback the Lions have had in over 40 years. Everyone has bad games and I would take an injured Mathew Stafford over a healthy Shaun Hill any day.
