Lions vs. Falcons injury report: Brandon Pettigrew again misses practice

Detroit Lions tight end Brandon Pettigrew is still dealing with an ankle injury and was unable to practice on Wednesday.


The injury reports for the Detroit Lions and Atlanta Falcons this week seem a bit smaller than usual. For the Lions, this is partly because a few players have been placed on injured reserve recently, meaning they aren't actually on the injury report. For the Falcons, well, perhaps they are just a healthier team.

Wednesday's injury report for the Lions included only two players who missed practice: tight end Brandon Pettigrew and safety Louis Delmas. Pettigrew is still dealing with an ankle injury, while Delmas was out presumably to rest his banged-up knee. Here's a full look at Wednesday's injury report:

RB Mikel Leshoure (Calf) - Limited in practice
WR Calvin Johnson (Knee) - Limited in practice
TE Brandon Pettigrew (Ankle) - Didn't practice
LB DeAndre Levy (Ankle) - Limited in practice
CB Chris Houston (Hamstring) - Fully practiced
S Louis Delmas (Knee) - Didn't practice
S Don Carey (Knee) - Fully practiced

And here's a look at the Falcons' Wednesday injury report:

WR Roddy White (Knee) - Didn't practice
WR Harry Douglas (Ribs) - Limited in practice
OT Tyson Clabo (Thigh) - Limited in practice
DE Cliff Matthews (Hamstring) - Didn't practice
DT Jonathan Babineaux (Ribs) - Limited in practice
CB Chris Owens (Hamstring) - Limited in practice
S William Moore (Hamstring) - Didn't practice
