The Detroit Lions updated their injury report on the Saturday before their Week 11 matchup with the Dallas Cowboys. Running back Ty Johnson, who left last week’s game with an injury, has cleared concussion protocol and has been removed from the injury report. Fullback Nick Bawden has replaced him on the report, though, as he has been listed as questionable with a foot injury.
The team confirmed the moves on their official Twitter account:
Lions FB Nick Bawden (foot) has been added to the Lions’ Injury Report. He is listed as Questionable for Sunday’s game vs. Dallas.— Detroit Lions (@Lions) November 16, 2019
Lions RB Ty Johnson has officially cleared concussion protocol and has been removed from the Game Status Report.
Johnson was selected by the team in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL draft. He has totalled just over 200 total yards from scrimmage in his rookie season, and has seen an increased role in the offense since starting running back Kerryon Johnson was placed on injured reserve. He will most likely be the listed starter at running back on Sunday now that he is healthy.
Bawden has played sporadically this season, featuring mainly as a lead blocker out of the backfield. The second-year player notably missed his entire rookie season with a knee injury.
Quarterback Matthew Stafford is also set to miss his second straight start as a banged up Lions team limps its way through the season.
