    10/07/15SMaurice AlexanderGroinQUESTIONABLEThe Rams have listed S Maurice Alexander, RB Trey Watts, CB Marcus Roberson, LB Daren Bates, OL Brandon Washington, TE Alex Bayer and DL Ethan Westbrooks as inactive Week 10 against the Cardinals.
    10/07/15LBAlec OgletreeAnkleQUESTIONABLERams linebacker Alec Ogletree underwent surgery Tuesday on a fractured fibula and will be miss at least eight weeks, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    What was initially termed an ankle injury has been confirmed as a broken leg, threatening the remainder of Ogletree's season. He was easily on pace to achieve a third 100-tackle campaign in a row to kick off his career. However, his absence will make way for Akeem Ayers to serve as the Rams' weak-side linebacker.

    10/07/15DEEzekiel AnsahShoulderQUESTIONABLELions defensive end Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) was limited in practice Thursday, per Kyle Meinke of MLive.com.

    Ansah tallied two additional sacks in the Monday night loss at Seattle, pushing him to four on the season and into a tie for second in the NFL. While he's been listed with a different ailment each of the last three weeks, Ansah has brushed off the concern and played. So far, there has been no indication that the same won't occur in Week 5, but the Friday injury report should clarify his availability.

    (Updated 10/08/2015)
    10/07/15RBJoique BellAnkleQUESTIONABLELions running back Joique Bell (ankle) didn't practice Thursday, and Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press noted that the running back isn't expected to play Sunday against the Cardinals.

    The Lions haven't officially ruled out Bell for the Week 5 contest, but Birkett's report paves the way for Ameer Abdullah to head the backfield for a second week in a row. If Monday's loss to the Seahawks is any indication, Abdullah will earn most of the carries, while Theo Riddick serves in a pass-catching role.

    (Updated 10/08/2015)
    10/07/15TEEric EbronKneeQUESTIONABLELions tight end Eric Ebron (knee) told ESPN he could be out up to three weeks.

    Ebron's chances of playing this week probably are not good, but it does not appear he will require surgery for his setback. He could return to action before the end of October.

    Brandon Pettigrew (hamstring), assuming he is healthy, and Timothy Wright will handle the tight end duties for the Lions until Ebron is able to return.

    10/07/15SJames IhedigboQuadricepsQUESTIONABLELions strong safety James Ihedigbo has reported to OTAs and will likely attend minicamp despite his stated desire for a new contract, the Detroit News is reporting.
    10/07/15LBDeAndre LevyHipPROBABLELevy (hip) practiced in full Thursday, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

    After taking on all practice reps to date this week, Levy is trending toward his season debut Sunday against the Cardinals. If he returns, he would likely shore up a run defense that has been a mid-tier unit through the first quarter of the current campaign, giving up 111.5 yards per game on the ground.

    (Updated 10/08/2015)
    10/07/15LBTravis LewisAnkleQUESTIONABLEThe Lions placed linebacker Travis Lewis (quad) on injured reserve Saturday. The team replaced Lewis on the active roster with tight end Jordan Thompson, who was signed from the practice squad.
    10/07/15CBRashean MathisCalfQUESTIONABLELions cornerback Rashean Mathis is planning to retire after the two-year contract he signed in March expires, per the Detroit Free Press.
    10/07/15WRLance MooreAnklePROBABLELions veteran wide receiver Lance Moore will not play Thursday night against Washington in the team's second preseason game, ESPN has reported. He will return home after becoming a father.
    10/07/15DTHaloti NgataCalfQUESTIONABLELions defensive tackle Haloti Ngata was limited in practice Friday with a shoulder problem and is considered questionable for the Sunday game against Minnesota.
    10/07/15TEBrandon PettigrewHamstringQUESTIONABLELions tight end Brandon Pettigrew (hamstring) returned to practice Wednesday, The Detroit News reports.

    Wednesday marks Pettigrew's first practice since sustaining the hamstring injury Sept. 13, and he could be ready for the Lions' Week 5 matchup against the Cardinals.

    Fellow tight end Eric Ebron (knee) is also banged up and expected to sit out a couple weeks, which would likely promote Pettigrew to the starting spot for the time being. Tim Wright would also likely see more snaps in Ebron's absence.
