Three Detroit Lions ruled out three players on Friday for Sunday’s tilt against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Hamstring issues have kept rookie wide receiver Kenny Golladay on the sidelines for the past three weeks, and he will again miss time as he continues his recovery. Both Greg Robinson and Emmett Cleary were also downgraded to Out, meaning the Lions will be short-staffed at the tackle position.
There was some positive news as Golden Tate, Glover Quin and T.J. Lang all appear good to go on “Sunday Night Football.” Each player had some health concerns coming out of the bye week, but all three key contributors should be able to suit up for Detroit this weekend.
The Steelers’ injury report was a little shorter than the Lion’s, but they will also be without three players due to injury. Defensive end Stephon Tuitt, tight end Vance McDonald and tackle Marcus Gilbert will all be out for Pittsburgh.
