The Detroit Lions are entering a critical Week 9 with a pretty decent bill of healthy. With a big divisional game against the Minnesota Vikings on the horizon Cheap Frank Ragnow Jersey , the Lions had perfect attendance at Wednesday’s practice.That meant the return of third-down back Theo Riddick, who has missed the past two games with a knee injury. Riddick was listed as limited by the official injury report on Wednesday, but he looked to be going through all of the drills during the portion of practice open to the media (first 15 minutes or so). Players who were dealing with injuries toward the end of last week’s game against the Seahawks were all also participating on Wednesday. Left tackle Taylor Decker missed the final possession of the Seahawks game, and was limited in practice with a back injury. Both linebackers Jalen Reeves-Maybin and Christian Jones were limited in practice, as well. If either can’t go, new linebacker Kelvin Sheppard may take their place. Sheppard, a seven-year veteran, signed with the team on Wednesday.Additionally T.J. Lang re-appeared on the injury list with a hip injury. You may remember that Lang had hip surgery in the offseason prior to the Lions signing Lang in free agency back in 2016. It’s unknown whether this is the same hip. As for the Vikings, they’re pretty beat up heading into this rivalry game. Just take a look at last week’s inactive list for Minnesota:Wednesday’s practice was slightly more optimistic for the Vikes. Xavier Rhodes Tavon Wilson Jersey , Dalvin Cook, Riley Reiff and Andrew Sendejo were all practicing, per Chris Tomasson. Though we don’t know their level of participation yet, it certainly seems like they’re trending in the right direction. Cook, Rhodes and Sendejo didn’t practice at all last week, so there’s a good shot they return to action against the Lions. That said, starting linebacker Anthony Barr and left guard Tom Compton remain out on Wednesday. And Stefon Diggs, who suffered an injury against the Saints, did not participate either. Here are the full injury reports fr om Wednesday:Lions injury report:RB Theo Riddick (knee) - Limited practiceT Taylor Decker (back) - Limited practiceLB Christian Jones (knee) - Limited practiceDE Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) - Limited practiceG T.J.

Their run defense was porous at best, disastrous at worst. Their pass defense was almost just as bad, allowing Sam Darnold and Jimmy Garoppolo to move the ball with relative ease. Obviously, things went much better on Sunday night against the New England Patriots, but throughout it all, one player has quietly performed at an impressive level: fourth-round rookie Da’Shawn Hand. Hand has been so good, in fact, that no other rookie interior defensive lineman has graded out better by Pro Football Focus’ metrics: A brief look at the box score, and you would never suspect Hand is having the type of season he is. While his 12 tackles Kenny Golladay Jersey , one tackle for loss, leads all Lions defensive linemen, that’s not saying much considering the rest of the Lions defensive line has been pretty bad. But even putting aside his PFF grade and his box score stats for a second, perhaps Hand’s greatest accomplishment is his immediate rise up the depth chart. Sure, the Lions’ defensive line was full of underwhelming talent and leftovers from a previous regime and scheme, but Hand managed to not only get himself a rotational role immediately, but he’s already started two games. His 92 total snap ranks third among Lions defensive linemen, only behind veterans Sylvester Williams and Ricky Jean Francois.Wh ere Hand has really thrived in his run defense. While the Lions, as a team Authentic Kerryon Johnson Jersey , have been downright horrible at stopping opposing running backs, it mostly hasn’t been Hand’s fault, who has been holding his ground solidly at the three and five-tech positions. In the first two games, Hand had seven “run stops,” per PFF, tied for the most among interior defenders. Ultimately, Hand is going to need some help in order to get this Lions run defense—which currently ranks last in yardage allowed (149.3 per game) and yards per carry (5.4)—turned around. But for Hand to be leading the way as a fourth-round rookie is seriously impressive.
