The Lions look to enter the first Sunday of the NFL season rather healthy, but the same cannot be said for their opponent. The Indianapolis Colts have declared four of their defensive players as out for Sunday’s afternoon game at Lucas Oil Stadium, with two more listened as “questionable.”

For the Lions, Eric Ebron is questionable to go on his game time status, his injury extent still stemming from questions from when he first went down during training camp. Golden Tate, who was limited in practice during the week, is also questionable, as are tackle Corey Robinson and rookie center Graham Glasgow.

As a reminder, as of the 2016 season the status of “Probable” no longer exists. Teams may only mark a player as “questionable,” “doubtful” or “out” if they are not projected to be good to go for Sunday. It may simply be that the Lions on the report, many of whom were in full participation during weekday practice, would have been listed as “Probable” as of last season but are now “Questionable.”

While Colts owner Jim Irsay claims that Jack Mewhort would be out Sunday against the Lions, his name does appear as “questionable” on the final injury report/game status report. Colts quarterback Andrew Luck was a surprise on the injury reports during the week, but he too did not appear on the final reports.
