Williams, Fairley, Delmas and others questionable for Sunday

Posted by ttwentyman on December 7, 2012 – 5:00 pm

The Lions could potentially have their full compliment of players available to them Sunday in Green Bay.

The team’s Friday injury report is out and no player has been ruled out or are doubtful for Sunday.

Defensive tackle Corey Williams is probably the biggest question mark having missed all three practices this week with a knee injury. He’s officially listed as questionable. The knee has bothered Williams since September, and he’s missed a total of five games this year with the injury.

He only practiced once last week and still played against the Colts.

Safety Louis Delmas (knee) and defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch (non injury related, rest) missed practice Friday. Delmas is listed as questionable. Vanden Bosch will play.

Joining Williams and Delmas as questionable are: tackle Jeff Backus (hamstring), defensive tackle Nick Fairley (quad), cornerback Chris Houston (ankle), and cornerback Jacob Lacey (foot/Achilles).

Tackle Gosder Cherilus (knees), defensive end Lawrence Jackson (concussion), receiver Kassim Osgood (finger) and linebacker Ashlee Palmer (thumb) are probable.

Lions without Williams, Delmas and Vanden Bosch at practice

Posted by ttwentyman on December 7, 2012 – 1:05 pm

Defensive tackle Corey Williams missed his third straight day of practice Friday as the Lions continue to prepare for Sunday’s game in Green Bay.

Williams hasn’t practiced all week because of a sore knee. He’s been bothered by the knee since September, and has missed a total of five games this year with the injury. Williams only practiced once last week, though, and still played vs. the Colts.

The team will release their game designations for Sunday at 4 p.m. today on Detroitlions.com.

Safety Louis Delmas (knee) and defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch (neck) also missed practice. That’s also been the routine for both players in recent weeks and they’ve still been able to play on Sunday.

Defensive tackle Nick Fairley returned to practice after sitting out Thursday with a quad injury. He was still favoring that leg a bit.
