The Detroit Lions have officially ruled out right tackle Riley Reiff for their Wild Card showdown with the Seattle Seahawks. That’s in addition to already being without the services of Travis Swanson, who was declared inactive earlier in the week.

Reiff had been originally listed as questionable with a hip injury. With his absence, Garrett Reynolds or Cornelius Lucas will likely take his place. If Lucas starts, it would be his first since last year’s home opener, while Reynolds was signed just this week.
Graham Glasgow is expected to earn a fifth straight start for Swanson at center, and Laken Tomlinson is expected to replace Glasgow at left guard.
