Lions injury report: LaAdrian Waddle remains out

Detroit Lions right tackle LaAdrian Waddle missed practice again on Thursday.

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

With only three days until the Detroit Lions' game against the Carolina Panthers, it seems unlikely that starting right tackle LaAdrian Waddle will be ready to play. I say that because Waddle again missed practice on Thursday. He left Monday's game early on with a calf injury, and he hasn't practiced yet this week, indicating that the Lions will have to go with either Garrett Reynolds or Cornelius Lucas at right tackle on Sunday. As of right now, it looks like Reynolds has the edge to start.

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

RB Reggie Bush (knee) - Fully practiced
TE Brandon Pettigrew (foot) - Fully practiced
OT LaAdrian Waddle (calf) - Did not practice
S James Ihedigbo (neck) - Limited in practice
S Don Carey (hamstring) - Did not practice

The only changes are that Reggie Bush and Brandon Pettigrew both fully practiced on Thursday after being limited on Wednesday. This means that both players will likely be listed as probable on the Lions' final injury report of the week on Friday.
