Nate Burleson, Zack Follett, Matthew Stafford Out For Lions

Three Lions players have been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Vikings: wide receiver Nate Burleson, linebacker Zack Follett and quarterback Matthew Stafford.

All three were expected to be out after how things transpired earlier in the week. Burleson apparently has a high ankle sprain, as mistakenly made public by Stefan Logan. Follett is still dealing with the after effects of a concussion. And finally, Stafford is still a ways away from being back in game shape.

Four players are questionable for the Lions: offensive guard Stephen Peterman, defensive end Cliff Avril, linebacker DeAndre Levy and linebacker Landon Johnson. At this point, I expect all four to play. Peterman practiced today after missing a couple days, showing that he should be good to go. Avril and Levy have been practicing this week as well. And with Johnson, he is likely going to replace Follett in the starting lineup, so I expect him to play.

Linebacker Ashlee Palmer and safeties C.C. Brown and Louis Delmas are all probable, which is good news.

I will post the full injury report tomorrow.
