Injury updates on Larry Warford, Caraun Reid, others

The Detroit Lions are suddenly a pretty banged-up team. Here's a recap of all the injuries they're currently dealing with.

Thursday night was not kind to the Detroit Lions from an injury standpoint. They were already without running back Joique Bell, right tackle LaAdrian Waddle, defensive end Jason Jones, defensive tackle Haloti Ngata and cornerback Alex Carter, and there are now several new names on the injured list following Thursday's game against the Washington Redskins:

  • Both right guard Larry Warford and defensive tackle Caraun Reid left Thursday's game with an ankle injury, and it turns out that the prognosis is the same for both players: High ankle sprains have an estimated recovery time of 4-6 weeks, and the Lions open the regular season in a little more than three weeks, so their status for Week 1 is definitely up in the air right now.

  • It turns out that defensive end Ezekiel Ansah also apparently suffered some form of an ankle injury.
  • Tight end Jordan Thompson is probably headed to injured reserve based on this comment from Jim Caldwell:
  • In addition to the aforementioned players, linebackers Kyle Van Noy and Kevin Snyder were among the players absent from practice on Friday. We know that Snyder left Thursday's game with a hand injury, but it's unclear if Van Noy is injured or if he was held out for some other reason.
