Lions-Dolphins injury report: Joseph Fauria, Brandon Pettigrew declared questionable

Two Detroit Lions tight ends have been declared questionable and one has been declared doubtful for Sunday's game.

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

None of the Detroit Lions' top three tight ends have been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins, but there's no guarantee that any of them will actually play. I say that because Eric Ebron is doubtful and Joseph Fauria and Brandon Pettigrew are questionable. Ebron will likely be sidelined at least one more week, and although there's a chance that both Fauria and Pettigrew could return this week, it's 50-50 at this point with them both being declared questionable.

On the bright side, aside from Nick Fairley, everybody else on the injury report is probable for the Lions. This means that Reggie Bush, Calvin Johnson and LaAdrian Waddle should be back, and it means that Ziggy Ansah and George Johnson shouldn't miss Sunday's game despite showing up on this week's injury report.

Here's the Lions' full injury report for Week 10:

RB Reggie Bush (ankle) - Probable
WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) - Probable
TE Brandon Pettigrew (foot) - Questionable
TE Joseph Fauria (ankle) - Questionable
TE Eric Ebron (hamstring) - Doubtful
OT LaAdrian Waddle (concussion) - Probable
DE Ziggy Ansah (toe) - Probable
DE George Johnson (hamstring) - Probable
DT Nick Fairley (knee) - Out

And here's the Dolphins' full injury report for Week 10:

RB Lamar Miller (shoulder) - Questionable
TE Dion Sims (toe) - Out
TE Charles Clay (knee) - Probable
OG Daryn Colledge (back) - Doubtful
C Mike Pouncey (hip) - Probable
DT Anthony Johnson (back) - Probable
DT Earl Mitchell (oblique) - Questionable
LB Koa Misi (ankle) - Questionable
LB Chris McCain (foot) - Probable
LB Kelvin Sheppard (hip/groin) - Questionable
LB Jordan Tripp (ankle) - Probable
S Jimmy Wilson (hamstring) - Questionable
