Detroit Lions’ Week 2 Injury Report: Thursday

The Detroit Lions released their injury report from Thursday’s practice and it remained exactly the same as yesterday with offensive lineman Andrew Donnal and T.J. Lang sitting out. LeGarrette Blount, who dinged up his shoulder in Week 1 and Matthew Stafford who took some major hits against the Jets, were full participants both Wednesday and Thursday.

As far as Ziggy Ansah goes, he is still not out of the woods despite an MRI that did not show any signs of damage to his shoulder.

Matthew Stafford insists offensive changes are business as usual

Nothing went right for the Detroit Lions on both sides of the ball on Monday night against the New York Jets. What’s even worse about the 48-17 loss is that apparently, the Jets knew what offensive plays that the Lions were going to be running.

“We were calling out their plays as he was getting up to the line,” linebacker Darron Lee said of quarterback Matthew Stafford, who was intercepted four times in the Detroit Lions’ 48-17 loss at Ford Field.

“We knew his signals,” Lee said. “We knew everything. That’s just preparation as a defense. It seemed like we were in his head as a defense.”

Heading into their Week 2 matchup in San Francisco against the 49ers, the Lions will be switching up their offensive plays. However, they’re insisting that that’s just business as usual, and not a response to opposition defenses being aware of what’s coming.

Game 1 was awful, but we still have hope

It was only one game. It was only one game. It was only one game. This is the thought that has been running through my head since Monday Night Football. But, the next one that has begun to creep in is even more haunting: was it only one game?

New head coach Matt Patricia had one job since he was hired, and that job was to get the Lions ready for their first game of the season against the lowly New York Jets. A team that struggled to five wins last season, and was starting a rookie quarterback to begin this year. A home game being featured on Monday Night Football. Easy game to start the season, eh? Yeah, right.
