The dust is just settling on the Detroit Lions’ disappointing loss to Washington, but the page must be turned quickly, because the team is back at it in three more days for the Thanksgiving game against the Chicago Bears.

As a result, the Lions are already due their first injury report of Week 13. Though the team did not practice on Monday, they released an official report... and it’s a big one.

Chief among the injuries are the quarterbacks. Matthew Stafford remains out with his back injury, but backup Jeff Driskel has been added to the report with a hamstring injury. These injuries explain Detroit’s interest in re-signing Josh Johnson, a request that was blocked by his current employers, the XFL.

In better news, Da’Shawn Hand (ankle), Tracy Walker (knee) and Frank Ragnow (concussion) all “returned” to practice and were limited after each missed last week’s game in Washington. Unfortunately, defensive end Trey Flowers (concussion) remains out, as do cornerbacks Rashaan Melvin and Jamal Agnew.

Here’s a look at the Lions’ full injury report for Monday:

CB Jamal Agnew (ankle) - No practice
DE Trey Flowers (concussion) - No practice
WR Marvin Hall (foot) - No practice
CB Rashaan Melvin (ribs) - No practice
QB Matthew Stafford (hip/back) - No practice
QB Jeff Driskel (hamstring) - Limited practice
DT Da’Shawn Hand (ankle) - Limited practice
DT Damon Harrison Sr. (knee) - Limited practice
TE T.J. Hockenson (shoulder) - Limited practice
P Sam Martin (abdomen) - Limited practice
C Frank Ragnow (concussion) - Limited practice
S Tracy Walker (knee) - Limited practice
G Kenny Wiggins (knee) - Full practice
