Lions offense takes another hit

The Detroit Lions already have a hobbling WR in Calvin Johnson. Now their number two wideout Golden Tate has an injury as well.

According to the Lions’ official website, Tate was limited in practice Thursday with a hamstring injury. Tate admirably picked up the slack for Johnson, who was slowed by an ankle injury last week against the Jets, pulling in eight catches for 118 yards.

Add in RB Joique Bell, who did not practice for a second straight day due to a concussion and the skill position players on offense are getting thinner by the day.

Even third string RB Theo Riddick missed a second day of practice with a hamstring injury himself. If he and Bell cannot play Sunday it would thrust third stringer George Wynn into the lineup to team with Reggie Bush. Here’s the rest of the Lions’ injury report.

Player Pos Injury Participation Thursday
Joique Bell RB Concussion No Practice
Joseph Fauria TE Ankle No Practice
Calvin Johnson WR Ankle No Practice
Travis Lewis LB Quadricep No Practice
Theo Riddick RB Hamstring No Practice
Nick Fairley DT Knee Limited Practice
Cassius Vaughn CB Ankle Limited Practice
Golden Tate WR Hamstring Limited Practice
Devin Taylor DE Knee Limited Practice
Don Carey S Hamstring Full Practice
LaAdrian Waddle T Calf Full Practice
