    09/20/16DLIan WilliamsUndisclosedOUTWilliams was placed on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    This move was made to make room on the roster for offensive lineman Anthony Davis who was reinstated by the league from retirement Saturday. It remains to be seen when Williams will play again.

    07/29/16LBAaron LynchSuspensionSUSPENDLynch has been suspended for the first four games of the regular season for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

    Lynch slid to the fifth round of the 2014 Draft amid character concerns, but developed into of the league's best young outside linebackers by totaling 12.5 sacks over his first two seasons. Nonetheless, Lynch has now incurred his first NFL off-field slip-up, and will miss the first quarter of the regular season as a consequence. With Lynch suspended until San Francisco's Week 5 game against the Cardinals, Eli Harold and Corey Lemonier are candidates to start opposite Ahmad Brooks in the meantime.

    Detroit Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    10/02/16DEEzekiel AnsahANKLEOUTAnsah (ankle) will not play Sunday against the Packers, and he could be held out in Week 4 against the Bears, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

    Ansah suffered a high-ankle sprain in Week 2, and while he is expected to get a second MRI on the ankle, it's also possible he misses more than the two games.

    (Updated 09/25/2016)
    10/02/16CBAdairius BarnesANKLEQUESTIONABLEBarnes (ankle) has been ruled out for the Lions' matchup against the Packers on Sunday, Tim Twentyman of the team's official site reports.

    Barnes was previously considered questionable. His absence limits Detroit to four healthy cornerbacks available to deploy against Packers QB Aaron Rodgers.

    (Updated 09/24/2016)
    10/02/16TEEric EbronANKLEQUESTIONABLEEbron (ankle) fit in a limited practice Thursday.

    After Wednesday's lack of activity, a return in some capacity Thursday is generally a good sign that Ebron is on track for active status Sunday at Chicago. However, the oft-injured tight end should be monitored with a watchful eye as the weekend draws closer.

    (Updated 09/29/2016)
    10/02/16DEWallace GilberryABDOMENQUESTIONABLEThe Lions have signed Gilberry, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Gilberry, who was limited to 23 tackles and two sacks in 16 games for the Bengals last season, bolsters the Lions' defensive end depth, though his path to IDP relevance hinges on him securing his share of snaps at the position opposite Ziggy Ansah.

    (Updated 04/05/2016)
    10/02/16WRMarvin Jones Jr.HAMSTRINGQUESTIONABLEJones (hamstring) took part in Friday's practice, Tim Twentyman of Lions.com reports.

    It's not clear how much work Jones was able to get in Friday, but it's a good sign that he was on the field after being added to the Lions' injury report Thursday. The Lions will reveal his injury status for Week 4 when they release their injury report Friday afternoon.

    (Updated 09/30/2016)
    10/02/16LBDeAndre LevyQUADRICEPSOUTLevy (quadriceps) was a non-participant in practice Thursday.

    Levy has missed the Lions' past two games due to his quadriceps injury and could potentially miss more. If he's unable to play against the Bears on Sunday, Thurston Armbrister could see some extra reps once again.

    (Updated 09/29/2016)
    10/02/16TRiley ReiffANKLEQUESTIONABLEThe Lions have picked up the fifth-year option of offensive tackle Riley Reiff, general manager Martin Mayhew has announced.
    10/02/16DEDevin TaylorANKLEQUESTIONABLETaylor (ankle) is active for Sunday's Week 3 matchup with the Packers, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

    Taylor only practiced once during the week, but the Lions may require him to play a full snap count Sunday with Ezekiel Ansah (ankle) expected to miss at least a few games. Through his first two games, Taylor has been able to make an impact at the defensive end spot opposite Ansah, logging eight tackles and 1.5 sacks.

    (Updated 09/25/2016)
    10/02/16LBAntwione WilliamsHAMSTRINGQUESTIONABLEWilliams (hamstring) will not play on Sunday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

    With starter DeAndre Levy (quadriceps) also ruled out, the Lions will have just two healthy outside linebackers to deploy against the Packers.

    (Updated 09/24/2016)
    10/02/16STavon WilsonNECKQUESTIONABLEWilson and Rafael Bush will compete for the Lion's starting strong safety position this offseason, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Back in 2012, then-rookie Wilson played in all 16 games for the Patriots, logging four starts and an equal number of interceptions. In three seasons since, he failed to start a single contest, and picked off just one pass. Now in Detroit, the Illinois product will have the opportunity to reposition himself as an NFL starter this offseason, according to Lions GM Bob Quinn. Glover Quin (ankle) is currently cemented in as their starting free safety, but Wilson will compete with Rafael Bush to patrol the secondary alongside him. However, Bush is the presumptive favorite to win this battle, and the Lions could still further address the safety position in the draft or through the free-agent market.

    (Updated 04/14/2016)
    09/11/16LBJosh BynesKneeOUTBynes (knee) reached an injury settlement, and was cut by the Lions on Saturday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Bynes had been placed on the injured-reserve with a knee injury. The severity of his knee injury is still unknown. He had originally projected to provide linebacker depth for the Lions this season.
