Thursday's preseason game between the Detroit Lions and Washington Redskins saw a handful of injuries mount. Preseason games may not matter in the record books, but the injuries are very real. Of note, starting right guard Larry Warford and defensive tackle Caraun Reid both left limping for the locker room, while later in the game linebacker Kevin Snyder and tight end Jordan Thompson left as well. Reid, Warford and Snyder were listed as questionable to return and Thompson was ruled out for the rest of the game.
Reid was the first to leave the game, suffering an ankle injury on the second play of the night. He hobbled around before retreating to the locker room and was eventually listed as questionable to return. Warford later left after Ameer Abdullah fell on his leg. He too suffered an ankle injury.
Thankfully, there is hope that Warford did not sustain any long-term damage.
Appears to be a high ankle sprain type injury. Fortunately by video, expecting it to be mild & ok for Week 1. https://t.co/PpBlblPTKv— David J. Chao, MD (@ProFootballDoc) August 21, 2015
Caldwell says Warford and Reid were "nicked up." Waiting for further medical evaluations— Kyle Meinke (@kmeinke) August 21, 2015
