The Detroit Lions will be limping across the finish line on Sunday. Not only will they be putting hte finishing touches on another 10+ loss season, but their roster is pretty beat up, as well.
On Friday, the team announced three players are OUT for Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers: defensive tackle A’Shawn Robinson, cornerback DeShawn Shead and tight end Luke Willson.
The biggest loss there is Robinson, who has made some serious strides in his third year with the Lions. His overall PFF grade of 89.9 is the 11th-best among interior defenders and is run defense grade of 91.5 is fifth-best.
The Lions are facing off against a Packers rushing attack that ranks second in efficiency, which makes Robinson’s absence all the more impactful.
Additionally, six different Lions players are listed as questionable: LeGarrette Blount (knee), Quandre Diggs (back), Kenny Golladay (chest), Damon Harrison Sr. (ankle) and Nevin Lawson (ankle).
Lawson is a new addition to the list, as he was a full participant in Wednesday’s and Thursday’s practice. While many of the other players listed are likely to play, receiver Kenny Golladay could be out as he was barely participating in Friday’s practice.
As for the Packers, their injury report isn’t out yet, but the big question is whether star receiver Davante Adams will play. He did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday, but on Friday head coach Joe Philbin is leaving the door open for Adams to play on Sunday:
Philbin on Davante Adams (knee): We'll see how he does on the practice field tomorrow & make a decision. #DETvsGB— Green Bay Packers (@packers) December 28, 2018
