Lions-Saints injury report: Matthew Stafford full participant with an ankle injury

New, comments

The first injury report of the week is out and there aren’t that many surprises for the Detroit Lions.

For the first time all season, Matthew Stafford appeared on the report, but was listed as a full participant during Wednesday’s practice. His injury is listed as an ankle issue with no additional problems, even though some media members speculated he had some sort of protective layer under his pants during practice.

The rest of the injury report had no new names. Kenny Golladay (hamstring) and Dwayne Washington (quad) returned to practice, but both were limited with their injuries. Rick Wagner remains on the injury report, but no longer has the ankle injury listed from last week. He is still limited by a shoulder problem, though.

Meanwhile, the New Orleans Saints—coming off a bye—had all 53 players accounted for during their practice on Wednesday. That includes Terron Armstead, their starting left tackle, who suffered a torn labrum in the offseason (the same injury as Taylor Decker). Armstead has missed all four games for the Saints, but he has recently been limited in practice. There’s a chance he makes his season debut this week.

Likewise, receiver Willie Snead has yet to make his 2017 debut, but was also present at practice on Wednesday. The Saints receiver had 72 catches and 895 receiving yards last season, so his return to the lineup would be huge for New Orleans.

Here are the full injury reports for each team.
