With T.J. Lang (Reserve-Injured) and Marvin Jones Jr. (OUT) already missing from the offense, it will be tough for Matthew Stafford and company to get things going against the Panthers.

The Lions just released their Week 11 Inactive List and as you can see, the Lions will be short-handed.

Nation, do you think the Lions will have enough firepower to shock the Panthers or is this too much for them to overcome?

Detroit Lions’ Matt Patricia fires back at media for criticizing ‘snow practice’

On Thursday, many were surprised that Detroit Lions head coach Matt Patricia made the decision to have his team practice in the snow. Most of the criticism was based on the fact the Lions next three games will be played at Ford Field and their fourth will be played in Arizona.

Today, Patricia spoke to the media and be began with a prepared statement about his decision to practice in the snow. It was pretty clear he was not thrilled with the media for their criticisms.

Via the Detroit Free Press:

“In regards to practice, a couple comments I just want to make on this topic and provide some maybe insight and let’s call it closure to this continual conversation that we have here as far as our training. First, we’ll always practice and train in a manner that looks out for our players’ ability to prepare each week for our opponent, while also taking care of and including all the parameters to the overall health and safety of our team. Indoor walk-throughs, which we had this week, which we’ve also had in the past, are always beneficial to our team, it’s beneficial to our players. It’s a great teaching and learning environment. It’s an opportunity for us to pull off them physically, the demands of practice and the overall hustle and pursuit of what we have to do during the course of a practice and our movements.

“It also gives a little bit of extra rest to most of the players out there on the turf. That also, though, allows some of the players that might not be able to practice out there in a normal practice environment to go out and get reps and get communication and get prepared for the game. The downside of practicing indoors on turf is the wear and effect that it has on the bigger-body players on our team. Standing on turf or running on turf often time for extended periods of times affects joints, it affects swelling and it really causes the body in the different members of our team to have pain or joint swelling that then will cause them further delay in preparing for playing in a game. Practicing outside has multiple benefits, it provides different elements for us to prepare and work through in the grand, overall preparation of our team.

Now, I know there is a .0000001% chance of this actually happening, but those players should be available when the Lions are on the clock in each round.
