TL;DR (too long didn’t read)
- The Detroit Lions are taking on the division rival Minnesota Vikings in the regular season finale this afternoon at Ford Field
- They already suffered a costly injury, as tight end Sam LaPorta was ruled out of the game with an injury
- The injury troubles continued, as Kalif Raymond was soon felled by a leg injury and was declared out.
