Injuries have been an issue for the Detroit Lions throughout training camp, and it doesn't look like they are going away anytime soon. A lengthy list of players missed or had to leave practice on Monday, including wide receiver Calvin Johnson. He is dealing with a bruised shoulder and has now missed two straight days of practice.
Joining him on the list of injured players are cornerbacks Chris Houston and Eric Wright. Both players are dealing with groin injuries, and Houston missed all of Monday's practice. Wright left during the practice after being unable to continue playing with the injury. Neither injury is considered serious, thankfully.
Another injury that isn't considered serious is one that forced defensive tackle Corey Williams to leave practice early. He rolled his ankle, but it doesn't seem as though there is much concern over the injury.
Some other bits of injury news: QB Drew Stanton returned after missing a day to prevent an infection since he had to have stitches in his right elbow. ... WR Demario Ballard was wearing a walking boot after injuring his foot on Monday. ... OT Jason Fox is now wearing a walking boot instead of a cast. ... Both OT Jeff Backus and CB Alphonso Smith could apparently return soon.
