On Sunday, the Detroit Lions will play the Minnesota Vikings at US Bank Stadium. Prior to this Week 3 game, several Lions players were injured, while others remain uncertain to play.
The Lions’ offensive guard Jonah Jackson and defensive lineman John Cominsky have both been confirmed to be out for Sunday’s game. Jonah was reportedly unable to participate in any of the team’s practices this week, and according to reports, the Lions have Evan Brown and Dan Skipper as potential replacements for Jackson at left guard.
It was revealed that Cominsky’s wrist surgery on Tuesday is what caused his exclusion from the game this weekend and he is set to miss more upcoming games following the procedure.
According to reports, the Lions have UDFA rookie Demetrius Taylor, who has the potential to replace Cominsky’s impact on the interior of the defense. Additionally, Austin Bryant is also anticipated to play this week for the Lions.
Aside from those two, there are four other names whose participation in Sunday’s game is uncertain. Among them is RB D’Andre Swift, who participated in two limited workouts this week despite being reported to have an ankle injury.
The Lions’ coach, Dan Campbell, responded to Swift’s potential appearance on Sunday by saying, “I think he’s fine.”
Tight end T.J. Hockenson also had three limited training sessions this week despite being said to have a hip injury. Meanwhile, even though C. Frank Rajneau has previously been mentioned as having a foot injury, his participation in three limited workout sessions this week indicates that he will be able to play again if the results of his medical evaluation on Saturday are favorable.
In a statement to the media, Campbell mentioned Rajneau’s potential return and said, “Yeah, that’s good.”
Aidan Hutchinson, who had previously been sidelined with a thigh injury, returned to training on Friday. Hutchinson told reporters before Sunday’s game that he “feels good” and “will be fine” to play this weekend.
