15 Detroit Lions who could be OUT for preseason game vs. Falcons

The Detroit Lions host the Atlanta Falcons on Friday night and the Lions could be without some key players.

It is finally time for some Detroit Lions football and though it is only the preseason variety, it is going to be fun to see our boys in the Honolulu blue and silver out on the field again tonight against the Atlanta Falcons.

During the regular season, the Lions are required to release injury reports leading up to each game but that is not the case during the preseason. That being said, Pride of Detroit has released who they believe could miss preseason game number one and as you can see below, they think there is a 50% chance or better that D'Andre Swift, T.J. Hockenson, Taylor Decker, and Frank Ragnow will sit this one out.
