As they look to make it three wins in a row, here is the final Week 11 injury report for the Detroit Lions.
The Detroit Lions have won two games in a row (I’ll let that marinate for a second). In Week 11 they’ll hit the road for a second straight week, this time against the 7-2 New York Giants. The last time the Lions won three games in a row was 2017, also known as Jim Caldwell’s last season as head coach.
Here is the final Week 11 injury report for the Lions, with designations for Sunday’s game.
DE Charles Harris (groin)-Out
DL Josh Paschal (knee)-Out
C Frank Ragnow (foot)-Questionable
WR Josh Reynolds (back)-Questionable
S DeShon Elliott (concussion)-Questionable
LB Malcolm Rodriguez (elbow)-Questionable
OT Taylor Decker (veteran rest-Wednesday)-No designation
CB Chase Lucas (ankle)-No designation
S Ifeatu Melifonwu (ankle)-No designation
OT Matt Nelson (groin)-No designation
RB D’Andre Swift (ankle/shoulder)-No designation
RB Jamaal Williams (illness-Wednesday)-No designation
Wide receiver Trinity Benson, who came back to the Lions last week and was injured last Sunday against the Bears, has been placed on IR. There is now an open spot on the 53-man roster, perhaps opening the door for DJ Chark to be activated off IR.
-Harris missed three games earlier in the season with a groin issue, and it has popped back up as his practice participation dwindled as the week went on. Paschal was injured last week, and after not practicing all week it’s not a huge surprise he’s out.
-Ragnow graduated to a limited practice on Friday, and head coach Dan Campbell said before the practice he was “pretty optimistic” the Lions’ center will play Sunday.
-Reynolds has missed the last two games. He went from a limited practice to no practice on Friday, so he seems to be legitimately questionable for Sunday’s game. Traveling with the team or not on Saturday stands to tip the scales one way or the other.
-Rodriguez was out last week, and he is still working with a brace on his arm. But three full practices is a good sign he’ll suit up against the Giants, even if his snaps may be limited.
-It’s unclear if Elliott is in the league’s concussion protocol. He was not spotted during the portion of Friday’s practice that was open to the media. C.J. Moore would probably start in his place alongside Kerby Joseph, and Melifonwu becomes another depth option as he looks ready to return to action.
-Swift was off the final injury report last week too, and he played all of 19 snaps against the Bears. He is line for another closely managed workload this week.
Here is the final Week 11 injury report for the Giants.
Giants’ rookie tight end Daniel Bellinger still out with an eye injury, and rookie offensive tackle Evan Neal is listed as doubtful. Nose tackle Dexter Lawrence is listed as questionable, as is rookie wide receiver Wan’Dale Robinson. Former Lion Kenny Golladay is also questionable.
