Ezekiel Ansah remains an outside possibility to return soon, but the Lions were without running back Theo Riddick for a second straight practice. Tight end Eric Ebron remained out as well as the Lions continue to battle with injuries at numerous key positions.
Dwayne Washington was out from practice again on Thursday as well, which makes the Lions running back situation extremely dire. The Lions recently attempted to staunch the blood flow by signing Justin Forsett earlier in the week, and he will probably see significant playing time if the injuries remain troubling for the roster. In addition, while Washington did not participate in practice, he was still doing drills and working with a trainer in hopes to be back soon.

Meanwhile, Anquan Boldin and Laken Tomlinson returned to practice Thursday in limited capacities, while guard Larry Warford, who was limited on Wednesday, sat out. The Lions are still missing DeAndre Levy and Haloti Ngata, with reports indicating Ngata may be out for several weeks. The full reports follow below.
