Lions injury report: Updates on Glover Quin, Ziggy Ansah, others

Joe Sargent

The Detroit Lions have a pretty lengthy list of injuries going into Week 12.

There's quite a bit of injury news for the Detroit Lions following their first practice of the week. Let's start with some good news: Defensive end Ziggy Ansah returned to practice on a limited basis, indicating that he's on track to return to action this week. It also looks like cornerback Bill Bentley is on track to return this week after practicing, and this is a pretty good sign that wide receiver Nate Burleson will play on Sunday as well:

On a not so positive note, safety Glover Quin missed Wednesday's practice and was seen wearing a walking boot. He left Sunday's game early with an ankle injury, but he said on Wednesday that the walking boot isn't new. He also said that he expects to play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Hopefully that will indeed be the case.

A couple other notes from Wednesday: Running back Joique Bell missed practice, but Dave Birkett reports that he was "walking fine." Also, tight end Brandon Pettigrew had a "large wrap" on his left knee, per Kyle Meinke.

Here's the Lions' full injury report for Wednesday:

RB Joique Bell (Achilles) - Did not practice
WR Calvin Johnson (knee) - Did not practice
WR Nate Burleson (forearm) - Limited in practice
TE Brandon Pettigrew (knee) - Limited in practice
