Here’s a look at the Detroit Lions final injury report for Sunday’s Week 6 game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Detroit Lions will look to put a mark in the win column at home Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Here’s a look at the final Week 6 injury report for the Lions.
OLB Trey Flowers (knee)-Questionable
TE T.J. Hockenson (knee) Questionable
RB D’Andre Swift (groin)- Questionable
RB Jamaal William (hip/illness) -Questionable
OG Jonah Jackson (shoulder)-No injury designation
CB Amani Oruwariye (hip)-No injury designation
-Running back Jamaal Williams added an illness to a previous hip injury this week, which combined to keep him out of practice on Thursday. Back as a limited participant Friday, he should be good to go for Sunday.
-Flowers did not practice Wednesday, but was limited Thursday and Friday and he also should be able to go on Sunday.
-Jackson, the Lions’ starting left guard, and Oruwariye, who has started all six games this season (and played every defensive snap) both graduated to full participation on Friday and carry no injury designation.
Swift and Hockenson, the Lions’ top two pass catchers, were limited Thursday and Friday and there are no strong indications both won’t play Sunday. Swift has been limited in practice for multiple weeks now, while Hockenson has been limited each of the last two weeks.
Other Lions injury notes:
Left tackle Taylor Decker’s 2021 debut looks like it will have to wait until Week 7. He has been designated to return from IR after finger surgery in September, and took part in some practice work this week. But he did not practice on Friday.
Cornerback Corey Ballentine (hamstring) was placed on IR Friday morning. Godwin Igwebuike and Tom Reynolds are the top options to replace Ballentine as the Lions’ primary kickoff returner. As part of their Friday morning moves that included putting Ballentine on IR, the Lions signed former Michigan State cornerback Shakur Brown to the practice squad.
