When the Detroit Lions take the field in Week 1 of the 2019 regular season, they will do so against an Arizona Cardinals team who will be without a starting offensive lineman.
On Friday, the Cardinals released their final injury report of the season and as you can see below, starting right tackle Marcus Gilbert has already been ruled OUT with a knee injury.

In 2018, Gilbert was solid on the offensive line for the Pittsburgh Steelers as he only gave up one sack according to Pro Football Focus.
In addition to Gilbert, backup OL Lamont Gallard has also been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Lions.
