The Detroit Lions fairly clean bill of health from last week had carried into the current one. Everyone was a participant in practice Thursday, which is huge for Sunday’s divisional game against the Minnesota Vikings.

While everyone was practicing their were a few players still banged up.

Guard T.J. Lang was limited as he is still struggling with the hip injury. The injury popped up after the Seahawks game, and he sat out a lot of drills during the open portion of Thursday’s practice.

Defensive end Ezekiel Ansah is still limited with the shoulder injury that caused him to leave the first half of the teams season opener. He has not seen any in game action since he suffered the injury.

Minnesota still has a few injuries to worry about on their end. The Vikings had four players sit out of Thursday’s practice. Absences include star wide receiver Stefon Diggs and three time Pro-Bowl linebacker Anthony Barr.

While Diggs has not practiced much this week, he still expects to play a role in this Sunday’s showdown.
