The Lions were still without safeties Louis Delmas and Amari Spievey and defensive tackle Corey Williams on the practice field Friday.
All three have not practiced at all this week, putting their availability for Sunday’s game vs. Green Bay in question.
Delmas hasn’t played since injuring his left knee in the third quarter victory over Seattle in late October. He missed the first four games of the year with an injury to the same knee.
Spievey hasn’t played since suffering a concussion at Chicago Oct. 22. He’s yet to be cleared for contact by an independent neurologist.
Williams missed last week’s game in Minnesota after aggravating a knee injury the week prior in Jacksonville. If he can’t go, expect second-year tackle Nick Fairley to make his fourth-career start.
The team will release game designations for all three players on today’s injury report at 4 p.m. on Detroitlions.com.
Defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch also missed practice, but that was likely due to rest, which has been his usual schedule during the practice week.
