With the possibility of starting the season 0-5 looming for the Detroit Lions, the injury reports the week leading up to the Arizona Cardinals game has been long. On Friday the Lions released their final report going into the weekend, and they will be without key offensive and defensive pieces against the Cardinals. Running back Joique Bell will miss a second weekend while tight end Eric Ebron and defensive tackle Haloti Ngata have both been ruled out.
Eric Ebron sustained a knee injury Monday against the Seattle Seahawks and has been speculated to be out for at least three weeks. Haloti Ngata left Monday night's game favoring a calf injury and did not return. Neither individual have practiced all week. Joique Bell is still nursing an ankle injury.
Two Lions, safety James Ihedigbo and guard Larry Warford, were listed as questionable to play.
Good news for Lions fans is that DeAndre Levy, who returned to full practice on Friday, has been deemed probable to start. Brandon Pettigrew was limited all week but he has been listed as probable as well. Ezekiel Ansah is also probable despite being listed for a third injury (shoulder) in as many weeks. Darius Slay is also probable with a quad strain. The full injury report follows.
