For the second straight day, outside linebacker DeAndre Levy has sat out Lions weekday practice and is listed on the injury report with a quad issue. He is not alone; cornerback Adairius Barnes and tight end Cole Wick were limited in practice on Wednesday and neither practiced on Thursday.

The absence of DeAndre Levy is fueling more concerns among Lions fans about his health, but Lions defensive coordinator Teryl Austin believes Levy should be ready for Sunday’s home opener against the Tennessee Titans:

Ezekiel Ansah, who was limited Wednesday, was also limited in practice on Thursday.

For the Tennessee Titans, linebacker Derrick Morgan and wide receiver Kendall Wright did not practice Thursday. Early reports seem to indicate that Kendall Wright will not be playing Sunday against the Lions. Full reports follow below.
