As the Detroit Lions get ready to take on the Oakland Raiders, we take a look at this week’s injury report. The secondary took another hit last week as nickel corner Josh Wilson suffered a “pretty significant” injury to his right knee. As a result Wilson was placed on season-ending injured reserve.


DT Gabe Wright (Ankle) – Wright, the rookie defensive tackle, is the only player officially listed as out. He did not practice at all this week. With Wright’s absence, look for Jermelle Cudjo to see a fair share of snaps.


CB Nevin Lawson (Concussion) – Lawson has a 50/50 chance of playing . He did not practice on Wednesday, but was limited in both Thursday and Friday’s practice. Lawson’s biggest test comes on Saturday as the Lions will see if Lawson passes the NFL’s concussion protocol.

S Don Carey (Back) – Like Lawson, Carey did not practice on Wednesday but practice on a limited basis both Thursday and Friday. Carey will be a game-time decision.

DE Ziggy Ansah (Toe) – It’s a toe. He is Ziggy Ansah. He has 9 more of them. He will play.

RB Joique Bell (Shoulder) – In a year when Joique Bell has showed up more on the injury report than the stat sheet, he is listed with a shoulder injury. Bell was limited during Wednesday’s practice, but was a full participant in practice for the rest of the week. Bell will play on Sunday.

WR Calvin Johnson (Ankle) – Megatron has been fighting a nagging ankle injury that occurred during the 4th quarter of the Lions 45-10 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in week 8. Johnson did not practice Wednesday. He did practice on Thursday and Friday on a limited basis.

DE Jason Jones (Non-Injury) – Not much is known as to why Jones missed practices on Wednesday and Thursday. But he was a full participant in Friday’s practice and will play Sunday against the Raiders.

P Sam Martin (Back) – Martin tweaked his back while picking up a nice tackle, but stayed in the game. Martin was a full participant in both Thursday and Friday’s practice. Look for Martin to be ready to go for Sunday’s game.

S Glover Quin (Ankle) – Quin is listed with an ankle injury and was limited in Wednesday’s practice. He was a full participant both Thursday and Friday. Quin will suit up Sunday against the Raiders.
