Nine Detroit Lions Players Miss Wednesday's Practice

As nice as it was to have relatively small injury reports during the first two weeks of the season, it's not realistic to expect that as the season progresses. Injuries are already starting to pile up, and while many of the ailments are simply minor bumps and bruises, the end result is the injury report growing as time goes by.

This week, for example, the Lions injury report included 11 players on Wednesday. Nine of the players missed all of practice and two were limited. Here's a breakdown:

Did Not Practice

WR Calvin Johnson (Ankle)

WR Rashied Davis (Hamstring)

TE Brandon Pettigrew (Shoulder)

OT Jason Fox (Foot)

DE Kyle Vanden Bosch (Not Injury Related)

DE Cliff Avril (Knee)

DT Nick Fairley (Foot)

LB DeAndre Levy (Knee)

S Louis Delmas (Hip)

Limited Participation

WR Maurice Stovall (Hand)

CB Alphonso Smith (Foot)

Chances are most of the players who didn't practice will be healthy enough to play on Sunday. Obviously guys like Fox and Fairley aren't going to return just yet, but it seems like the other players sat out practice because of some minor injuries that aren't anything to worry about.
