    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    09/25/16DTSharrif FloydKNEEOUTFloyd (knee) is expected to miss about six weeks after injuring his miniscus, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

    Floyd had surgery to trim his miniscus this week. Look for Shamar Stephen and Tom Johnson to see some extra time for the next month or so as Floyd recovers.

    (Updated 09/23/2016)
    09/25/16TEMyCole PruittKNEEQUESTIONABLEPruitt (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt with the Panthers, Ben Goessling of ESPN reports.

    Pruitt's knee has kept him limited throughout this week's practice. There is some speculation that he could play, but the decision will likely be made hours leading up to kickoff.

    (Updated 09/23/2016)
    09/25/16CBXavier RhodesKNEEQUESTIONABLERhodes (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt with Carolina, Ben Goessling of ESPN reports.

    With Trae Waynes' sloppy play as of late, the Vikings are anxiously awaiting Rhodes' return to action. The hope is that he'll be available for the big game, but if not, Minnesota is prepared for Waynes and the ageless-wonder Terrence Newman to anchor the secondary Sunday.

    (Updated 09/23/2016)
    09/07/16DBMichael GriffinBackQUESTIONABLEGriffin (back) reached an injury settlement with the Vikings on Wednesday, Anthony DiMoro of the Huffington Post reports.

    The agreement removes Griffin from the Vikings' injured reserve list. When healthy, he'll be free to sign with another organization.

    (Updated 09/07/2016)
    09/02/16DLIsame FacianeKneeQUESTIONABLEThe Vikings signed nine players to their practice squad: running back Joe Banyard, wideouts Kain Colter and Donte Foster, defensive tackle Isame Faciane, tight end Chase Ford, cornerback Kendall James, center Zac Kerin, offensive tackle Mike Remmers and defensive end Justin Trattou.
    08/24/16DBTre RobersonHandQUESTIONABLERoberson was released by the Vikings.

    He suffered a broken bone in his right hand during training camp which hurt his chances to make the final roster.

    (Updated 09/03/2016)
    07/29/16QBTaylor HeinickeAnkleOUTHenicke will start the regular season on the non-football injury list, Andrew Krammer of the Star Tribune reports.

    Heinicke was originally given a timetable of three months for a return when he had surgery to repair a torn tendon in his ankle. Placement on the NFI list to start the season means that he'll miss at least the first six games, which he likely would've anyway.

    Detroit Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    09/25/16DEEzekiel AnsahANKLEOUTAnsah (ankle) is getting a second opinion on his ankle injury, Adam Caplan of ESPN.com reports.

    Ansah has not practiced this week after he suffered a high-ankle sprain in Sunday's loss to the Titans. The defensive end is expected to miss extended time, but getting a second opinion from a different doctor could change his status. Check back later in the week for more updates on the specifics of the injury. In the meantime, it is assumed that Kerry Hyder, Wallace Gilberry and Brandon Copeland could all see extra snaps if Ansah is sidelined for Week 3.

    (Updated 09/22/2016)
    09/25/16CBAdairius BarnesANKLEOUTBarnes (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)
    09/25/16TEEric EbronBACKQUESTIONABLEEbron (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Green Bay, despite logging a full practice Friday.

    While the 'questionable' designation isn't necessarily what owners want to see, Ebron did increase his practice participation throughout the week, returning as a limited participant Thursday and then logging a full session Friday. He thus seems likely to play in Sunday's game, looking to build on a solid start to the season. With Ameer Abdullah (foot) on injured reserve, the Detroit passing game could be even busier than usual, albeit in a tricky matchup.

    (Updated 09/23/2016)
    09/25/16DEWallace 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)
    09/25/16LBDeAndre LevyQUADRICEPSOUTLevy (quadriceps) will not play on Sunday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

    Levy was previously listed as doubtful to play against the Packers. His absence is a blow for a Detroit defense already without the likes of DE Ziggy Ansah (ankle).

    (Updated 09/24/2016)
    09/25/16TRiley ReiffANKLEQUESTIONABLEThe Lions have picked up the fifth-year option of offensive tackle Riley Reiff, general manager Martin Mayhew has announced.
    09/25/16DEDevin TaylorANKLEQUESTIONABLETaylor (ankle) returned to practice on Friday after missing Thursday's practice with an ankle injury, MLive.com reports.

    It appears Taylor avoided structural damage in his ankle and, consequently, he shouldn't miss any time moving forward. The South Carolina product has racked up 13 tackles and 1.5 sacks thus far into the season, but is not expected to have stud DE Ezekiel Ansah bookending the opposite side of the defensive line in the Lions' Week 3 matchup against the Packers, potentially allowing Green Bay blockers to devote more attention his way than Detroit's previous two opponents were able to.

    (Updated 09/23/2016)
    09/25/16LBKyle Van NoyCALFQUESTIONABLELions coach Jim Caldwell said linebacker Kyle Van Noy will not need surgery after he went for a second opinion. Caldwell added Van Noy will need rest and is week-to-week.
    09/25/16DTTyrunn WalkerCALFQUESTIONABLEWalker re-signed with the Lions, inking a one-year deal on Thursday, Justin Rogers of MLive.com reports.

    Walker signed a one-year contract with the Lions last season and will now remain with the team for at least another year. In 2015 he played in four games, recording nine tackles.

    (Updated 03/10/2016)
    09/25/16GLarry WarfordILLNESSQUESTIONABLELions offensive lineman Larry Warford is still bothered by a high ankle sprain, but he hopes to begin practicing this week, reports MLive.com.
    09/25/16LBAntwione WilliamsHAMSTRINGOUTWilliams (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)
    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.
