On Thursday, the Detroit Lions continued their preparations for this Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings at Ford Field. There is no question about it that the Lions will have their work cut out for them against a Vikings team that dominated them earlier in the season.
According to reports, Damon ‘Snacks’ Harrison (ankle) and Charles Washington (hamstring) both sat out of practice, as they have for the entire week.
Still no DT Damon Harrison (ankle) or S Charles Washington (hamstring) at the open portion of Lions practice Thurs.

Nation, can the Lions stop the Vikings ground game if Snacks does not play?
Michigan Wolverines’ National Signing Day recap
Jim Harbaugh and the University of Michigan football coaching staff had a very productive national signing day run. On the first day of the early signing period, the Wolverines were able to fill up almost their entire 2019 Freshman class inking commitments with 25 recruits.
The day was marked by the biggest surprise, maybe in the country, when Daxton Hill decided to send his letter of intent to Michigan. Only 11 days ago, Daxton flipped his commitment to Michigan to Alabama, but today that all changed. Hill is a five-star safety from Oklahoma with a great pedigree. He is the younger brother of Justice Hill, the Oklahoma State running back that just declared for the NFL draft.
Other notable commitments include Zach Charbonnet (RB) and Chris Hinton (DL). Both are in the top 100 nationally and are part of a trio that should be the backbone of this 2019 class. The other major commit was Cornelius Johnson, a top 250 player that, as a wide receiver, is viewed to be the missing piece at a position that Michigan has struggled to fill in its run-heavy offense.
As it stands now, Michigan has the top-ranked recruiting class in the B1G according to multiple sources and are ranked 7th nationally according to 247Sports Composite Rankings.
