According to source NFL insider Ian Rapoport, the Lions have made a decision on the status of both Blount and Ansah and both are expected to be available for today’s game.

This is obviously great news for the Lions as they are going to need all of the help they can get if they want to come away with a victory in San Francisco.

Predicting the Detroit Lions remaining 15 games

After crapping the bed at Ford Field against the New York Jets on Monday Night Football, the Detroit Lions are all of a sudden in the crosshairs of many of their fans. Some want offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter fired, others are saying new head coach Matt Patricia has already lost the team, and many have already turned their thoughts to the 2019 NFL Draft. Hell, look through social media, there is even talk about whether or not the Lions should move on from Matthew Stafford!!!

Now, I am not going to lie, my faith in the Lions (I originally picked them to win 10 games) has definitely taken a shot to the gut but to jump the gun and call for drastic action to be taken after one week. That is just moronic. That being said, I am not handing out free passes either. The Lions looked like horse shit in Week 1 and that has to change quickly if they want to make something out of the 2018 season.

The bottom line is that Detroit does not have a great roster. I still believe in the offense (if healthy) but the defense may be one of the worst in the NFL. Matthew Stafford was awful in Week 1 but he will bounce back and win games for the Lions as the season goes along.
