Hand (groin) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Texans, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Hand (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Panthers. Hand will miss his first game of the season. The 25-year-old will join fellow defensive end Austin Bryant (thigh) on the eventual inactive list, leaving Romeo Okwara and Everson Griffen to start at the position Sunday. Frank Herron was also elevated from the practice squad to add depth.
Hand (chest) is active for Sunday's game versus the Saints. Hand will avoid missing time with a chest injury that popped up this week. The 24-year-old defensive end should resume starting duties, where he's registered six tackles (four solo) through three games.
Hand (chest) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Saints, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. Hand was a limited participant in practice all week with this new injury, so he's trending toward a game-time decision. The third-year defensive end has six tackles through three games, and if he's forced to sit out, expect Romeo Okwara to bump into a starting role while Julian Okwara enjoys an uptick in usage.
Hand (groin) is active for Sunday's season opener against the Raiders. Hand was slowed at practice this past week, but his injury will not prevent him from taking the field in Week 1. It's not clear if he will be limited at all, but he does figure to slot in at the starting defensive end spot opposite Trey Flowers.
