Allen Park -- Detroit Lions defensive back Quandre Diggs continues to practice with a removable cast on his left hand and had little to say about whether he expects to play this Sunday against the Green Bay Packers. 

"What’s today, Thursday?," Diggs said. "What did the injury report say? Whatever the injury report says, that’s what I say."

The practice report has indicated Diggs has been limited each of the first two days of practice, which provides little clarity on his status for Sunday. 

He reportedly suffered a fractured bone in his hand last weekend against the Cowboys. He said he didn't even know when the injury occurred.

"I ain’t going to lie, I don’t know," Diggs said. "I still don’t know. It just felt weird. But it ain’t nothing serious."

Playing in a cast isn't something all that unusual in the NFL. In fact, one of Diggs' teammates, safety Glover Quin, had one of the best games of his career with a cast on his left arm. 

In 2010, Quin intercepted three passes in a 20-0 win over the Tennessee Titans while playing with a broken hand. Not surprisingly, Diggs has heard the story more than once. 

"Who was he playing?" Diggs said with a smile. "What quarterback?"

A few reporters guessed -- Jake Locker, maybe Kerry Collins. The correct answer is Rusty Smith, who appeared in three games during his brief career. 

"That’s not Aaron Rodgers," Diggs said.
