Lions vs. Texans injury report: Detroit holds Monday walkthrough

The Detroit Lions didn't actually practice on Monday, but they still released an injury report.


The Detroit Lions didn't practice on Monday, instead opting to hold a walkthrough. Even so, they still released an injury report based on estimations of what would have happened if they had actually practiced. This gives us an early indication of which players we should expect to play on Thursday and which ones will probably be out.

Here's a look at the Lions' Monday injury report:

WR Titus Young (Not injury related) - Out
WR Calvin Johnson (Knee/thumb) - Didn't practice
OT Jeff Backus (Hamstring) - Didn't practice
OG Rob Sims (Hamstring) - Limited in practice
DE Cliff Avril (Knee) - Didn't practice
DT Sammie Hill (Knee) - Didn't practice
DT Ndamukong Suh (Knee) - Limited in practice
DT Corey Williams (Knee) - Limited in practice
LB Ashlee Palmer (Chest) - Limited in practice
CB Drayton Florence (Concussion) - Didn't practice
CB Jacob Lacey (Foot) - Didn't practice
CB Chris Houston (Ankle) - Limited in practice
S Louis Delmas (Knee) - Didn't practice
S Erik Coleman (Eye) - Limited in practice
K Jason Hanson (Left foot) - Fully practiced

Aside from the injury report being so lengthy, the most notable thing to me is that Williams would have practiced on a limited basis. Perhaps that's a sign that he is close to returning. I personally think Nick Fairley should continue to start even when Williams is back, but adding Williams back into the rotation would be nice.

Below is a look at the Houston Texans' Monday injury report, which is also based on estimations since they didn't practice.

QB T.J. Yates (Right elbow) - Fully practiced
RB Ben Tate (Hamstring) - Didn't practice
WR DeVier Posey (Knee/hamstring) - Didn't practice
WR Lestar Jean (Knee) - Fully practiced
TE Owen Daniels (Back) - Fully practiced
OG Wade Smith (Ribs) - Didn't practice
DE Antonio Smith (Ankle) - Limited in practice
DE Jared Crick (Neck) - Fully practiced
DT Shaun Cody (Back/ribs) - Limited in practice
LB Tim Dobbins (Shoulder) - Limited in practice
LB Darryl Sharpton (Neck/knee/hip) - Limited in practice
LB Bradie James (Thumb) - Fully practiced
LB Jesse Nading (Foot) - Fully practiced
CB Jonathan Joseph (Hamstring) - Didn't practice
CB Brice McCain (Knee) - Fully practiced
S Quintin Demps (Back) - Fully practiced
