The Week 1 injury report is out for Sunday's matchup between the Detroit Lions and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Five players are on the injury report for the Lions, three of whom are out. Only three players are on the injury report for the Buccaneers, and only one is out.
Here is the full injury report:
RB Maurice Morris (Hand) - Probable
OT Jason Fox (Foot) - Out
DT Nick Fairley (Foot) - Out
DT Andre Fluellen (Hand) - Probable
CB Alphonso Smith (Foot) - Out
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
OG/C Ted Larsen (Ankle) - Probable
LB Dekoda Watson (Hamstring) - Probable
CB Myron Lewis (Ankle) - Out
There are no real surprises for the Lions. Although Smith did return to practice, I don't think anybody was expecting him to be ready this week. The same goes for Fox and Fairley, who have yet to practice as they also recover from foot injuries. Morris and Fluellen are both recovering from hand injuries, and they made enough progress to play on Sunday.
