The Detroit Lions wrapped up their week of practice today with a walkthrough and issued their final injury report as a result.

Brandon Pettigrew (ankle) did not practice today, or any other day this week, and is unlikely to play against the Falcons tomorrow night. Officially, the Lions have listed him as doubtful on the injury report.

The news is better for Louis Delmas. He was a limited participant again today and although he’s officially listed as questionable he said yesterday that he will play and his ability to practice gives credence to those words.

Calvin Johnson (knee), Mikel Leshoure (calf) and DeAndre Levy (ankle) all practiced but had their reps limited for the second day in a row.

Don Carey (knee) and Chris Houston (hamstring) remain on the injury report despite practicing fully just as they did yesterday.

The NFL defines the 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
