The Lions visit the Panthers for a 1:00 game today. Detroit will play without defensive linemen Austin Bryant and Da’Shawn Hand. Bryant is suffering from a thigh injury. Hand has a groin injury. The Lions had previously announced that receiver Kenny Golladay, who continues to battle a hip injury, and running back D’Andre Swift, who is in concussion protocol, would miss the game. Quarterback Matthew Stafford is listed as questionable because of the thumb injury on his throwing hand, but is expected to start.
To help fill the gaps, Detroit promoted defensive tackle Frank Herron and wide receiver Mohamed Sanu from the practice squad.
Carolina quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is also questionable, because of a knee injury. Panthers’ running back Christian McCaffrey will miss the game.
The Packers play at Indianapolis in a 4:25 game today. Green Bay may be without punter J.K. Scott. He did not travel with the team because of a personal matter. Scott still may play – he’s listed as questionable – but Green Bay signed punter Drew Kaser as insurance.
