A season that has decimated the Detroit Lions has only two games remaining, but the team will be limping into the year’s end, as the injury report is stacked ahead of the team’s Week 16 matchup against the Denver Broncos.
Seven players were listed on Thursday’s injury report, with three crucial players on the defensive side of the ball all missing practice.
Defensive tackle A’Shawn Robinson missed practice for the second straight day as he is dealing with a shoulder injury. His partner on the defensive interior, Damon Harrison Sr., missed practice as well due to his knee and calf. Fortunately, Harrison was also listed as resting — as the team has commonly done with the veteran this season — so his outlook for the game this week is positive.
Devon Kennard missed practice for the second straight say as well. The linebacker has been dealing with a hamstring injury. Fellow linebacker Christian Jones was limited with a shoulder injury, but on the bright side Steve Longa was a full participant for the second straight day despite a quad injury.
Right tackle Rick Wagner (knee) and recent stand out running back Bo Scarbrough (ribs) were both limited in their participation on the offensive side of the ball.
