Calvin Johnson, Reggie Bush inactive-- Sun Oct 26 8:45 am --
Lions without two key components
The Detroit Lions receiver, Calvin Johnson, has been scratched for Sunday's game in London against the Atlanta Falcons, after testing out the ankle early at Wembley Stadium. He ran the perimeter of the field and a couple routes before shutting it down. Detroit will be missing offensive firepower outside of Johnson as well. RB Reggie Bush (ankle), TE Brandon Pettigrew (foot), TE Eric Ebron (hamstring), TE Joseph Fauria (sprained ankle), RT LaAdrian Waddle (brain) and QB Kellen Moore are the other inactives. (MLive)
Lions' Eric Ebron, Reggie Bush limited in practice-- Wed Oct 15 4:39 pm --
Theo Riddick re-aggravates hamstring strain
The Detroit Lions had six skill position players sidelined or limited for Wednesday's practice, including rookie tight end Eric Ebron. Ebron is a new addition to the practice report, missing a portion of the session with a hamstring injury.
Also limited was running back Reggie Bush, who was returning to the practice field after missing all of last week with a twisted ankle. All-Pro wide receiver Calvin Johnson (ankle) and tight end Joseph Fauria (ankle) remained sidelined and were joined by wide receiver Jeremy Ross (ankle) and running back Theo Riddick, who re-aggravated a hamstring strain against the Vikings.
FF Today's Take:The injuries to Detroit's offense have sapped the fantasy value of Matthew Stafford and the passing game. If Reggie Bush is feeling good after a week of practice he and Joique Bell will be counted on to shoulder the load against a Saints team that ranks 16th in the NFL against the run with 112 rushing yards allowed per game.
