Detroit Lions rule out two, list eight as questionable against Tampa Bay Buccaneers


The Detroit Lions ruled out broad receiver Kenny Golladay and went up against Tyrell Crosby for Saturday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, while eight others were considered questionable.

It is the seventh consecutive competition that Golladay has missed due to a hip injury. This makes it possible that the upcoming free agent played his last game in a Lions uniform. Crosby will miss his third straight game with an ankle injury.

Quarterback Matthew Stafford (ribs, thumbs) tops the list of questionable players, which includes linebackers Jamie Collins (neck), Taylor Decker (groin), Jayron Kearse (hips) and kicker Matt Prater (back) Frank Ragnow (neck) , Cornerback Darryl Roberts (hip) and attacking lineman Halapoulivaati Vaitai (concussion).

Ragnow, who was added to the Pro Bowl list this week, returned to exercise in limited capacity on Thursday for the first time since his neck cartilage tear earlier this month.

Kearse and Prater were included in the injury report. If the Prater can’t leave, it is unclear what the Lions will do as it is too late to add a kicker to the list.

Punter Jack Fox took on some placekicking duties in college but only made five of his 12 senior attempts in 2018 at just 44 meters in length.
