Unable to recover from a shoulder injury suffered last Sunday, Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley was one of three Detroit players held completely out of practice on Friday.
Fairley and starting tight end Brandon Pettigrew were each listed as doubtful to play in Week 15 against Arizona on Detroit's official injury report, as both men could not find a way to get on the practice field this week. Despite returning in a limited capacity on Thursday, safety Louis Delmas did not particpate on Friday and is now questionable for the weekend. Delmas continues to battle knee swelling following offseason surgery, and has been limited to just five games this year due to complications.
While four key Detroit players including Calvin Johnson each practiced in a limited capacity on Friday, all are currently listed as probable to square off against the Cardinals. Cornerbacks Jacob Lacey and Chris Houston joined Johnson as players with a limited distinction to close out the week of practices, but should each be in action on Sunday after opening the week on the sideline. The lone player on the Lions' injury report to practice fully all week long, offensive tackle Corey Hilliard is listed as probably for Week 15 despite a minor knee issue.
Here are the final injury reports for both teams heading into the weekend:
|S||James Sanders||Calf||Not Listed||LP||NP||Doubtful|
|LS||Mike Leach||Back / Shoulder||FP||FP||FP||Probable|
