Detroit Lions Injury Report for Sunday’s Matchup vs. New York Jets


The Detroit Lions injury report for the teams week 4 match-up in New York vs. the Jets has two very big positives in it to go along with a considerable list of injuries.

Pro Bowl wide receiver Calvin Johnson returned to practice on Friday and is listed as “questionable” for Sunday’s game. Expect him to play, even if it is in a limited capacity.

Safety James Ihedigbo is slated to make his regular season debut in a Lions uniform after missing the first three games of the regular season.

Ihedigbo’s return is certainly a welcome one as the Detroit Lions injury report consists of a majority of defensive secondary personal. He will also provide a nice boost to the Lions run defense, the same defense ranked No. 1 in the NFL. The Jets defense is No. 2. Here are the remaining names on the final Detroit Lions injury report for week four:

Here is the New York Jets final injury report:

The Jets name that jumps out the most to me is the last one, Dee Milliner. Milliner is the No. 1 cornerback for the Jets and has the responsibility of covering the one they call Megatron. If Milliner indeed misses Sunday’s action, look for Johnson to have a huge game, even if he isn’t at 100 percent.
