Lions Week 9 Injury Update

*Listings according to on Oct. 31*

Chase Lucas, CB
Injury: Ankle
Game Status: Questionable

Rookie. Just a depth piece for the Lions in a position group, which lacks any real depth (or starters for that matter). I say this with the exception of Jeff Okudah.

Ifeatu Melifonwu, CB
Injury: Ankle Game Status: Questionable Notes:

Intrigued with his potential, being a mid-round pick out of Syracuse last season. Would rather see him after witnessing Amani Oruwariye perform like absolute trash for the first half of the season!

Charles Harris, DE
Injury: Groin Game Stats: Questionable Notes:

Played well against the Commanders early on! Hasn’t really done anything since.

Matt Nelson, OT
Injury: Calf
Game Status: Questionable

Who? Plays in a position, which is perfectly fine with Taylor Decker and Penei Sewell.

Mike Hughes, CB
Injury: Knee
Game Status: Questionable

Again, I guy I would like to see hit the field healthy. As a former Bengal, Hughes was excellent in the slot in defense; could bring that same energy and tenacity.

DeShon Elliot, S

Injury: Finger
Game Status: Questionable

The former Baltimore Raven, Elliot is also super interesting. Literally, any of these defensive backs in Elliot, Hughes and Melifonwu are better than Oruwariye!

D’Andre Swift
Injury: Shoulder, Ankle
Game Status: Not Listed on Injury Report

Now, I felt like I had to include the Detroit star running back after his individual display against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. Swift, who when healthy, has been dominant this season. However, thanks to early injuries to both his shoulder and ankle, Swift has been sidelined for much of the season. In his first game back, Swift’s role was very limited, despite a week of practice in which he was a full participant. Head coach Dan Campbell even remarked that “Swift [got] too many carries,” even though he only had five total carries (and five total receptions). Even the back himself admitted to the fact that he is not 100 percent back yet; however, moving forward, expect Campbell and the Lions to really limit his touches until he is truly fully healthy and ready for the nitty gritty of high-speed football action.
