Lions injury report: Updates on LaAdrian Waddle, Larry Warford, others

Who will be starting on the right side of the Detroit Lions' offensive line on Sunday? The first injury report of the week has some clues.

The Detroit Lions came out of last week's game with both of their starters on the right side of the offensive line injured. One of those starters, right guard Larry Warford, is out for the foreseeable future. Warford luckily doesn't need surgery on his injured left knee, but an exact timetable for his return is currently unknown.

Right tackle LaAdrian Waddle also got hurt last week. He suffered a minor knee sprain, according to Dave Birkett, but he did practice on Wednesday. That's a sign that he's on track to play on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals.

In other injury news, the Lions' top three tight ends all fully practiced on Wednesday. It remains to be seen if Joseph Fauria and/or Eric Ebron will actually return to game action this week, but they at least seem to be getting closer. Brandon Pettigrew returned last week and isn't even on the injury report this week, so the Lions might be on the verge of having all three of their top tight ends available.

Finally, running back Reggie Bush and wide receiver Calvin Johnson did not practice on Wednesday. Bush aggravated his ankle injury early in last Sunday's game, which is likely why he was sidelined on Wednesday. Johnson, on the other hand, seemingly just got a day off based on this:

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

RB Reggie Bush (ankle) - Did not practice
WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) - Did not practice
TE Joseph Fauria (ankle) - Fully practiced
TE Eric Ebron (hamstring) - Fully practiced
OT LaAdrian Waddle (knee) - Limited in practice
OG Larry Warford (knee) - Did not practice
DT Nick Fairley (knee) - Did not practice
LS Don Muhlbach (ankle) - Limited in practice
