Lions without four starters at practice Wednesday

Posted by ttwentyman on December 21, 2011 – 1:25 pm

The Lions were without four starters at practice Wednesday as they continued on-field preparations for Saturday’s Christmas Eve game against the Chargers at Ford Field.

Safety Louis Delmas, defensive tackle Corey Williams, right tackle Gosder Cherilus and defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch did not participate in the portion of practice open to the media.

Vanden Bosch is typically given a day of rest on Wednesday.

The official injury report will be released at 4 p.m.

Also not practicing for the Lions Wednesday were: defensive tackle Nick Fairley, safety Chris Harris and corner Don Carey.

Fairley practiced Tuesday. He said two weeks ago, though, that rest could be part of his weekly regiment going forward as he continues to deal with a foot injury.

Both Harris and Carey did not practice Tuesday.

Long snapper Don Muhlbach was back practicing Wednesday after missing Tuesday.

Corner Aaron Berry (shoulder), corner Chris Houston (knee) and defensive end Lawrence Jackson (thigh bruise) continue to practice this week.

    Boy, I was trying to think the other day just who the hell, the Lions got with their First Pick in 2010??? Then it came to me that it was Nick Fairley. Boy, for as GREAT of a pick that SUH was, Fairley is that big of a BUST! What has he played for like 15 minutes all year? When analyst said he liked to dog it in practice, they failed to say that he CAN’T play injured. I hope he ends up panning out next year, or what a mistake he was!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hard to say if this is a situation that he s doggin. I don’t think many of us regular folk have broken a foot before. One of the Lions’ backup o linemen also broke his foot around the same time as Fairley. He got put on injured reserve. So, yeah. At least he s out there

    I knew that if stafford played a whole season we could get into the playoffs and look where we are with one solid year of stafford. I few more tweaks on defense and Jahvid coming back hopefully soon. We could be one of the top tier teams. Everybody continue to play hard and play smart. Let’s bring life into Detroit. LET’S GOOOOO LIONS!!

    Mr. Suh you just play your game. Bernadette, I doubt she has ever taken a snap in real game.

    Hopefully we can get a few more of our d-backs healthy, cause the Lions are going up against a very good offense. If our d-line can dominate their o-line, then that will make it rough on their QB. Don’t give him any time. Lets hope Matt and the offense get rolling right from the opening whistle. I can’t wait for this game, what an atmosphere it will be up there. We’re taking Dom’s advice and getting up early for the party. Gooooo Lions!!!!!!!!!!!!
