The same three faces were out for Wednesday's practice leading up to the Detroit Lions' season opener vs. the San Diego Chargers: DeAndre Levy, Caraun Reid and Larry Warford. We had already been aware of Reid and Warford's ankle injuries, but the Lions had been silent in regards to what was preventing Levy from practicing.

Well, it appears that Levy is dealing with a hip injury according to the Lions' official website. Levy has missed practices for almost three straight weeks now and his chances of starting Week 1 are looking pretty bleak at this point. Best case scenario may be that he's listed as Questionable on Friday for the final injury report, but I wouldn't bet on it.

There is also this report from Will Carroll that suggests Levy's hip injury concerns may be due to internal damage. That can't possibly be good if it's true, but the Lions have not confirmed this yet.

If Levy does indeed miss Sunday's game, it appears that Josh Bynes may be the first in line to replace him at WILL.

Here is the full list of injuries from Wednesday's practice:

LaAdrian Waddle was reportedly working behind Cornelius Lucas at right tackle, but it's encouraging to see him getting back in the thick of things. Ebron's ankle injury doesn't seem to be too serious and Whitehead being limited only enhances the concerns with the current linebacker situation.

UPDATE: The Detroit Free Press' Dave Birkett dropped a little optimism regarding Levy's injury:
