Lions injury report: 4 starters miss Wednesday’s walkthrough

A look at the Lions’ lengthy Week 15 injury report. Perhaps due to the win, perhaps due to the lengthy injury report, but the Detroit Lions opted to go with another walkthrough on Wednesday.

The overwhelming response to this has been something to the likes of “good, the Lions should have moved on last year.” And while maybe that’s true, it’s a little harsh on both...

The two most significant injuries were the first two. Da’Shawn Hand went down in the first quarter after getting rolled up on by a teammate. He was carted off and did not return to the game.
