Lions escape serious injuries in Raiders game
Allen Park — The Lions came out of Sunday’s win over the Raiders fairly healthy as none of their key players missed a significant portion of the game due to injury.
But, there were still some new ailments that popped up after the game.
The Lions didn’t practice Monday, but with a Thursday game this week, they had to fill out a projected injury report.
The good news for the Lions is none of the players would’ve missed practice, but they still had seven players that would’ve been limited, including a few additions to recent injury reports.
Cornerback Darius Slay was listed with a neck injury, which explains why he briefly exited the game. Defensive tackle Caraun Reid has an ankle injury, and tight end Eric Ebron is dealing with both quad and hand injuries.
Wide receiver Calvin Johnson (ankle), defensive tackle Gabe Wright (ankle) and safety Don Carey (back) are all still dealing with injuries that limited their participation in practice last week.
Cornerback Crezdon Butler also was listed as limited due to an issue with his teeth.
The Lions practice Tuesday and Wednesday, so the status of the injured players for the Thanksgiving game against the Philadelphia Eagles (12:30 p.m., FOX) should become clearer later this week.
