Allen Park —The Detroit Lions have listed four players as questionable for Sunday’s opener against the Indianapolis Colts.

Wide receiver Golden Tate is listed as questionable for season opener vs. Colts.

Tight end Eric Ebron (ankle), wide receiver Golden Tate (ankle), offensive tackle Corey Robinson (ankle) and center Graham Glasgow (toe) have all been given the designation. None of the four were limited in practice the past two days and only Tate was limited on Wednesday. 

The NFL changed its injury reports this offseason, eliminating the probable designation. Questionable has been defined as “uncertain if player will play.”

For the Colts, the team has ruled four players out, headlined by starting cornerback Vontae Davis. Cornerback Darius Butler, safety Clayton Geathers and defensive tackle Henry Anderson will also sit the contest out. 

Additionally, guards Joe Haeg and Jack Mewhort and linebacker Sio Moore are questionable. Mewhort, Indianapolis’ starting left guard, was originally expected to miss the contest after suffering a knee injury late in the preseason, but is now trending toward being available after fully practicing on Friday.
