Allen Park – Running back Theo Riddick has been ruled out, center Travis Swanson is doubtful and cornerback Darius Slay is questionable for Sunday against Green Bay.

Slay has practiced all week, in a limited capacity, after missing last Monday’s game in Dallas. Swanson also practiced this week, three weeks after suffering a concussion, but still has hurdles to clear in the protocol to return. And Riddick will miss his fourth straight game with a wrist injury.

Also questionable for the Lions is return man Andre Roberts, who suffered a shoulder injury against the Cowboys. He didn’t practice on Wednesday or Thursday and was limited Friday, wearing a non-contact red jersey. 

Fine time

Lions defensive tackle A’Shawn Robinson was not fined for his highly criticized unnecessary roughness penalty against the Cowboys. The rookie was assessed a 15-yard penalty for picking up and “slamming” running back Ezekiel Elliott.

Dallas cornerback Anthony Brown was docked $9,115 for roughing Detroit kicker Matt Prater on a PAT attempt.
