Another player had his season ended Friday when he was placed on injured reserve. This time it was wide receiver Derrick Williams; he was the third Lion to have his season ended this week joining Kyle Vanden Bosch and Alphonso Smith.
Aside from the players on IR, just two Lions will not play on Sunday and neither is a surprise.
Drew Stanton will once again get the start with Matthew Stafford and Shaun Hill unable to play. Gosder Cherilus missed practice on Thursday and Friday and is listed as doubtful to play this Sunday.
Isaiah Ekejiuba has been nursing a knee injury for several weeks and is questionable to hit the field against the Packers.
Cliff Avril, Jahvid Best, Calvin Johnson, and DeAndre Levy all had limitations throughout the practice week but are probable to play. Nate Burleson is also named on the injury report as probable but he was a full participant in practice all week.
By NFL definition, injury report status is listed as follows:
Out = Player will not play
Doubtful = 25% chance a player will play
Questionable = 50% chance a player will play
Probable = 75% chance a player will play
