The Detroit Lions are dealing with the injury bug in Week 3, as David Montgomery injured his thigh in Week 2 and star wideout Amon-Ra St. Brown injured his toe.
St. Brown is listed as quqestionable for Week 3 against the Atlanta Falcons, but he is optimistic he will be able to play, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Amon-Ra St. Brown injury status for Week 3 game against Atlanta Falcons
St. Brown is officially listed as questionable for this matchup, but it appears he has a chance to suit up in Week 3.
Best Lions prop bet if Amon-Ra St. Brown misses Week 3
Jahmyr Gibbs anytime touchdown scorer
Does the Lions rookie running back find the end zone this week?
Through two NFL games, Gibbs has 14 carries and nine catches (on 11 targets), but one has to think he gets an expanded role with David Montgomery banged up and St. Brown is also dealing with an injury.
If both players miss Week 3, Gibbs should be the No. 1 option in the Lions offense.
I think there’s a good chance that St. Brown can suit up, but I like Gibbs regardless since he’s coming into this game healthy.

St. Brown has a chance to play in Week 3 with his toe injury. If he doesn't, the team has a quick turnaround on Thursday night in Week 4 against Green Bay.
