The first edition of this week's injury report came out on Wednesday. Six players were on it for the Lions, and four of them are defensive players. Here's a rundown of the six players and their status:
RB Maurice Morris (hand) - full practice
OT Jason Fox (foot) - didn't practice
DE Kyle Vanden Bosch (non-football injury) - didn't practice
DT Andre Fluellen (hand) - full practice
DT Nick Fairley (foot) - didn't practice
CB Alphonso Smith (foot) - limited practice
Although Vanden Bosch has been dealing with a shoulder issue, the Lions say he missed practice for a non-football reason. My guess is he simply got a day off, which is why they didn't list a specific injury as the reason for him missing practice.
For the Buccaneers, three players are on their initial injury report: C/OG Ted Larsen, LB Dekoda Watson and CB Myron Lewis. Lewis is the only one who didn't practice at all. Watson was limited and Larsen fully practiced.
