As the Detroit Lions prepare for their season finale against the Green Bay Packers, the injury list was looking daunting on Wednesday. Six different players sat out on Wednesday, including five starters.
However, on Thursday three of those five returned to action and appear on track to play on Sunday. Wide receiver Kenny Golladay (chest), defensive tackle Damon Harrison Sr. (ankle) and safety Quandre Diggs all practiced on Thursday, although all were listed as limited.
Unfortunately, A’Shawn Robinson, DeShawn Shead and Luke Willson all remained sidelined Thursday. Willson, who is dealing with a concussion suffered last week, seems unlikely to play considering he has just a couple of more days to get through concussion protocol, which includes a day of full football activity.
Elsewhere of note, quarterback Matthew Stafford is now listed as a full participant in practice after spending the past couple weeks “limited” with a back injury.
For the Packers, they sent defensive lineman Kenny Clark to the injured reserve list earlier in the week. Similarly, Green Bay saw a bunch of players return to practice Thursday after missing Wednesday’s session:

It’s notable that Davante Adams, the Packers’ No. 1 receiver remains out with a knee injury. Adams had nine catches for 140 yards and a touchdown in the last matchup between the two teams, and he’s had at least 69 yards in his last five games. His loss would be significant, even if the stakes are low.
Here’s a look at the full injury report for the two teams:
