The Detroit Lions suffered a slew of injuries in the first half of their Week 7 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings, as a few key players had to leave the game.

Running back Kerryon Johnson went to the locker room early with a knee injury, he quickly reappeared on the sidelines on one of the medical bikes. The team said he is questionable to return.

Cornerback Darius Slay, who missed a game two weeks ago due to the hamstring injury, left the game in the first half as well after apparently aggravating the injury. He, too, is questionable.

Linebacker Jarrad Davis left the game with a lower leg injury, though he did quickly return back to the action on the same drive.

Defensive tackle Damon Harrison Sr. suffered an injury shortly after Davis did. He walked off the field with help and was seen minutes later heading into the locker room. There is still no official report on the type or seriousness of Harrison’s injury.

UPDATE: Harrison is questionable to return with a groin injury.

UPDATE 2: Harrison returned to the game in the third quarter.

UPDATE 3: Darius Slay and Kerryon Johnson have been downgraded to OUT, they will not return.
