Thursday Notes: Ernie Sims Likely Out This Week

  • Ernie Sims missed practice on Wednesday because of what Jim Schwartz called a "fairly significant" hamstring injury.  Sims left the Seahawks game in noticeable pain, and he said yesterday that it doesn't look like he will play against the Vikings on Sunday.  Usually when Schwartz uses the word "significant" to describe an injury it means the player will miss around a couple weeks at the least, so I personally wouldn't expect Sims to be back until Thanksgiving at the earliest.
  • Also missing practice yesterday were Larry Foote and Dewayne White.  Foote has a banged up wrist and White is dealing with an ongoing hamstring injury.  There's no word yet on their status for Sunday, but I would expect a listing of probable or questionable on this week's injury report.
  • One piece of good news on the injury front is that Louis Delmas practiced on Wednesday.  There was some concern over his health after he left the Seahawks game with a right knee injury, but based on the fact that he was on the practice field yesterday, it doesn't appear to be bothering him too much.
  • Gunther Cunningham is a big fan of the way DeAndre Levy plays and the way he leads on the field.
  • The reason for Matthew Stafford's recent struggles could be that his knee injury is still bothering him a little bit.
  • Brett Favre was limited in practice yesterday with what the Vikings are calling a hip injury.  It's actually his groin that's injured, though.
  • Ramzee Robinson has been signed by the Eagles.  I was always a fan of Robinson when he played for the Lions, so it's good to see him land somewhere.
  • Larry Johnson is officially a free agent after no teams claimed him off waivers.
  • Brady Quinn is once again the Browns' starting quarterback, meaning the Lions can expect to face him when they host Cleveland on November 22.
