The Detroit Lions released their injury report for Week 2. The details are listed below:

TE Brandon Pettigrew (hamstring) - Out

LB DeAndre Levy (shoulder) - Doubtful

DT Haloti Ngata (shoulder) - Questionable

DT Caraun Reid (ankle) - Questionable

CB Darius Slay (ankle) - Probable

QB Matthew Stafford (right upper arm) - Probable

WR Golden Tate (quad) - Probable

OT LaAdrian Waddle (elbow) - Probable

G Larry Warford (ankle) - Probable

Let's start with the good news. The Lions should have a much better group along the offensive line with Waddle and Warford both probable to play against the Minnesota Vikings. The Lions front five looked lost last week and with the return of two starters, the Lions should be in much better shape.

Additionally, it looks like the Lions don't have to worry about the statuses of Stafford and Tate, who were both a bit banged up in San Diego.

However, the loss of Pettigrew could be hurtful, as the Lions need all the help blocking they can get. Also, it is a bit surprising to see Ngata listed as questionable. His injury did not seem to be considered serious, and although he has been limited, he has been practicing since Thursday. When asked how he's feeling, he seemed optimistic:

That's promising, but never count completely on a player's own words.

Here is Minnesota's (much shorter) injury report:

RB Jerick McKinnon (ankle) - Probable

DT Shamar Stephen (knee) - Probable
