Detroit Lions vs. Arizona Cardinals: Beat writers make predictions
Dave Birkett and Bob McManaman share thoughts, predictions on Detroit Lions vs. Arizona Cardinals, coming Sept. 27, 2020, in Glendale, Ariz. Filmed Sept. 22.
Trufant was a limited participant in Thursday’s practice after missing four straight and last week’s loss to the Green Bay Packers. He injured his hamstring Sept. 13 against the Chicago Bears.
Lions coach Matt Patricia said before practice that Trufant wouldn’t be doing much on the field, but the 30-year-old took part in all individual drills and showed no signs of the injury while working at full speed.
Rookie Jeff Okudah will make his second start Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals (2-0) if Trufant can’t play.
Vaitai is expected to start at right tackle Sunday in what should be his Lions debut. Williams, who sat out the Packers game, practiced Thursday with what appeared to be a harness on his left bicep.
