Detroit Lions WR Josh Reynolds won’t play vs. Green Bay Packers with back injury

Detroit Free Press

Josh Reynolds felt his back lock up when he reached to catch a pass Wednesday in practice, the product, he thinks, of trying to overcompensate for a knee injury he has been dealing with the past month.

Reynolds will get a chance to rest both injuries today as the Detroit Lions deactivated their No. 2 receiver against the Green Bay Packers. Reynolds, who has 26 catches for 357 yards this season, was listed as doubtful on Friday’s injury report.

Tom Kennedy is in line to join Amon-Ra St. Brown and Kalif Raymond in the Lions’ top receiver group, and the Lions signed receiver Stanley Berryhill from the practice squad to the 53-man roster on Saturday and elevated practice squad receiver Brandon Zylstra to their gameday roster.
