Detroit Lions Much Healthier than Green Bay Packers for Week 14 Matchup

The Detroit Lions will enjoy the benefit of being the healthier team when they face the Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night.

The Lions’ final injury report of the week designates no one worse than questionable to play. Jeff Backus (hamstring), Louis Delmas (knee), Nick Fairley (quad), Chris Houston (ankle), Jacob Lacey (foot/Achilles) and Corey Williams (knee) are all listed as questionable.

Gosder Cherilus (knees), Lawrence Jackson (concussion), Kassim Osgood (finger) and Ashlee Palmer (thumb) are listed as probable to face the Packers.

The outlook isn’t quite as good for the Packers.

Clay Matthews (hamstring), Jordy Nelson (hamstring), James Starks (knee), C.J. Wilson (knee) and Charles Woodson (collarbone) have all been ruled out and will not take the field against the Lions.

Additionally, Mike Neal (shoulder) did not practice all week and is listed as doubtful to play.

T.J. Lang (ankle) and Terrell Manning (shoulder) have been designated as questionable while Donald Driver (thumb), Jeff Saturday (foot) and Sam Shields (ankle) are probable.

The NFL defines the four game status designations 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
