NFL injury report: Lions still have injury concerns after Week 14

Dave Reginek

The Detroit Lions escaped Week 14 with one more injury, but it adds to a list of significant injuries the team had coming into the week.

The Detroit Lions fell to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, and they also suffered a significant injury. Rather, the injury suffered was to a significant player, though the severity is unknown at this time. Starting tight end Brandon Pettigrew injured his left ankle and was seen leaving the locker room with a boot on his foot.

He was injured early in the game and did not return, and projections are all over the place. If he's having trouble walking, he may not be able to practice in time to play the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. Boots can be used a precaution, however, so we'll wait for official word.

Pettigrew was the only player who went down in the game with an injury for Detroit. Other pertinent injury news concern the inactives for the game.

Safety Louis Delmas returned to action two weeks ago, but he's been playing limited snaps in red zone and third-down situations. He missed practice time this past week and was inactive for the game. It's unclear if he suffered a setback or if him being held out is a precautionary measure.

Defensive lineman Corey Williams sat out the game as well, after missing practice. He's now missed five games since surgery in September, but he was questionable heading into the game so there was some hope that he could return.
