10/16/17WRKenny GolladayHamstringQUESTIONABLEGolladay (hamstring) did not participate in Tuesday's practice, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Golladay was inactive for Sunday's loss to the Saints after being a limited participant in practice all last week. With the Lions on a bye week, it's no surprise that the wideout is absent from Tuesday's session, but it does mean that Golladay will have a week off to nurse his hamstring injury. Expect another update to come next week regarding the rookie receiver's health.

10/16/17WRGolden TateShoulderDOUBTFULTate may be sidelined "a few weeks" due to the shoulder injury suffered Sunday at New Orleans, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Ultimately, an MRI will relay the severity of the injury and determine a corresponding recovery timetable. If he indeed misses time, Marvin Jones would immediately become the clear-cut No. 1 wideout in Detroit. Meanwhile, TJ Jones and Kenny Golladay (hamstring), if healthy, would receive corresponding bumps within the passing attack.

10/16/17RBDwayne WashingtonQuadricepsQUESTIONABLEWashington (quadriceps) is inactive for Sunday's contest at New Orleans, Mike Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

Washington's stretch of DNPs will extend to four games as he recovers from a quadriceps injury. Behind the Lions' running back duo of Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick, Zach Zenner may continue to pick up some short-yardage reps until Washington is ready to return.

10/16/17LBPaul WorrilowKnee - MCLQUESTIONABLEWorrilow (knee) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Saints, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Worrilow is reaching the front end of his 2-4 week recovery after sustaining a sprained MCL against the Vikings on Oct. 1. The 27-year-old did not practice this week and could easily miss another week or two, but his recovery status will likely be updated early next week.

10/15/17DBGlover QuinConcussionQUESTIONABLEQuin (concussion) did not participate in Tuesday's practice, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Quin was forced out of Sunday's game against the Saints due to a concussion and did not return. He'll now have to go through the league's concussion protocol, but with the Lions entering a bye week, the safety will have some extra time to become symptom-free.

06/21/17DLKhyri ThorntonSuspensionSUSPENDHead coach Jim Caldwell indicated that Thornton, whose six-game suspension ended after Sunday's game, isn't guaranteed to be added to the active roster, James Hawkins of the Detroit News reports.

Thorton has officially satisfied the six-game suspension he was handed in June for a violation of the league's substance-abuse policy. While one would think his return would be welcomed after starting defensive tackle Haloti Ngata (biceps) was placed on injured reserve last week, it's apparent Caldwell may have other plans in mind.
