Lions injury report: Andre Roberts back at practice, Swanson to address media Thursday

Signs might point to a healing offensive line.

The Lions injury report is remarkably short entering Wednesday, but questions remain to the status of the offensive line’s availability for Saturday as the Lions practice on a shortened week in preparation for the wild card playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks. While Andre Roberts didn’t practice on Tuesday, he joined three other Lions in limited practice on Wednesday. However, Roberts was sporting a red, no-contact jersey.

While the status of Riley Reiff and Travis Swanson (both limited Wednesday) has yet to be determined, Swanson was present in the locker room on Wednesday and has made it clear he will be available to the media on Thursday:

Having Reiff and Swanson back would certainly help shore up an offensive line that has struggled to keep Stafford protected since Swanson’s concussion. The full injury reports follow:
