Lions injury report: Updates from Monday

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

Since the Detroit Lions just played a day ago, they didn't actually practice on Monday. Even so, with the Lions on a short week, they had to release an injury report anyway, so here's a look at what would have happened if they did practice:

RB Reggie Bush (ankle) - Limited in practice
WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) - Did not practice
OT Riley Reiff (knee) - Did not practice
OG Larry Warford (knee) - Did not practice
DE Ziggy Ansah (elbow) - Limited in practice
DE George Johnson (foot) - Limited in practice
DT Nick Fairley (knee) - Did not practice
LB Ashlee Palmer (concussion) - Did not practice
CB Rashean Mathis (ankle) - Limited in practice
S Glover Quin (back) - Limited in practice
S James Ihedigbo (knee) - Did not practice

It's tough to take too much from this considering it's a hypothetical injury report, but that's a lot of injuries for a team that has a game in three days. Most concerning is the possibility that the Lions will be without their starting left tackle and starting right guard. We already knew that Larry Warford wouldn't be back this week, but now Riley Reiff looks like he's going to miss Thursday's game against the Chicago Bears after getting hurt on Sunday.

It's also concerning that three of the Lions' starting defensive backs are on Monday's injury report. Only safety James Ihedigbo would have actually missed practice if there was one, but the Lions really can't afford to have a bunch of injuries pile up in the secondary.
