The Detroit Lions could be without several of their starters in Week 10 after 11 players were listed on their final injury report as either questionable or out.
Entering Week 10 of the 2019 NFL regular season, the Detroit Lions have a disappointing record of 3-4-1. And the Pride now have a divisional showdown with the 3-5 Chicago Bears. The loser of the contest will be firmly cemented in the basement of the NFC North, with both the 7-2 Green Bay Packers and the 6-3 Minnesota Vikings potentially extending their fairly substantial leads.
Hurting the Lions is the fact they’ve lost four of their past five games, including divisional defeats to both the Packers and the Vikings. And as they prepare to travel to the Windy City to play the Bears on Sunday, Detroit will do so with several of their starters either designated as questionable or out for the critical NFC North matchup.
The Lions released their final injury report on Friday. And a whopping eight players were officially listed as questionable for the game against the Bears. Those names include guard Joe Dahl (ankle), defensive tackle Mike Daniels (foot), guard Graham Glasgow (back), defensive tackle Damon Harrison (groin/resting veteran), punter Sam Martin (abdomen), defensive end Romeo Okwara (groin), defensive tackle A’Shawn Robinson (ankle), and quarterback Matthew Stafford (hip/back).
All the Lions’ players listed as questionable for the Week 10 contest were at the very least limited participants during Friday’s practice session except for Okwara. Detroit’s sack leader from last season, Okwara did not practice on either Thursday and Friday. And his status for Wednesday was unlisted.
Both defensive end Da’Shawn Hand (ankle) and safety Tracy Walker (knee) were officially listed as out for the game in Chicago after the two did not participate at all during last week’s practice sessions. Reserve safety Miles Killebrew suffered a concussion during Thursday’s practice and has also already been ruled out against the Bears.
