Detroit Lions right guard Graham Glasgow is dealing with a back injury, per the team’s injury report on Wednesday.
Glasgow was unable to finish Sunday’s game against the New York Giants, and he was not healthy enough to practice on Wednesday. Lions head coach Matt Patricia seemed to indicate his absence was precautionary.
“Graham Glasgow is actually a little sore today, so he’s not going to practice,” Patricia said prior to Wednesday’s practice. “We’re in pads, so we’re just going to keep him out of that.”
If he isn’t able to go this week, Kenny Wiggins—who has been getting regular time at guard through a constant rotation—would likely get the start.
Elsewhere on the injury report, cornerback Darius Slay was limited with the hamstring injury that held him out of practice and the Giants game last week. Mike Daniels, too, was limited, as he tries to work his way back from a foot injury that has held him out since Week 3.
Matthew Stafford (hip) and Damon Harrison Sr. (groin) were limited as they deal with some nagging injuries.
The Oakland Raiders’ practice report isn’t out yet, but they could be hurting big time at center. Starter Rodney Hudson did not practice and is expected to miss some time, but backup center Andre James also missed practice.
Not only was Rodney Hudson not at #Raiders practice, but neither was backup center Andre James. Banged up. New man Erik Magnuson has a lot on his plate.— Vic Tafur (@VicTafur) October 30, 2019
Tuesday, the Raiders signed former Wolverine center Erik Magnuson to add some depth. Magnuson has played in eight career games and made three career starts.
UPDATE: Raiders head coach Jon Gruden told the Lions media during a conference call that Raiders guard Richie Incognito would slide to center if Hudson and James can’t go.
