After all of the injury concerns in the preseason, the Lions are surprisingly healthy entering Week 1. The two biggest concerns are tight end Eric Ebron and defensive end Ezekiel Ansah. Neither played in the preseason but both seem on track to appear in Week 1. How Detroit handles their snaps is a key — particularly for Ansah — but the Lions seem as if like they’ll have a full complement of players for the Cardinals.
It has already been determined that starters Andrew Luck (shoulder), Vontae Davis (groin) and Ryan Kelly (foot) will not play against the Rams. Chester Rogers, who spent most of training camp as the third receiver, continues to remain out because of a hamstring injury he suffered late in the preseason. There was some thought that he would practice Wednesday, but he was listed on the team’s injury report as “did not practice,” which reduces the odds of him playing against the Rams.
Running back Leonard Fournette (foot), wide receiver Marqise Lee (ankle) and quarterback Blake Bortles (wrist) practiced Wednesday and are expected to play Sunday, but things aren’t so clear when it comes to running back T.J. Yeldon (hamstring). He would be a big loss, too. Not so much because of his work in the run game — he’s behind Fournette and Chris Ivory — but his work as a pass-protector. He is by far the Jaguars’ best pass-blocker among the backs. With the struggles of the offensive line and the fact that J.J. Watt, Whitney Mercilus and Jadeveon Clowney are coming, not having Yeldon would be a serious Cheap Basketball Jerseys blow. It doesn’t look good at this point, though he still has a chance to play but certainly would be limited.
Cook can run, can catch and can handle whatever he needs to Cheap Authentic NFL Jerseys handle, and the offseason injury to Latavius Murray means Cook has basically been working as the starter since he got there. Which rookie RB do you like? There are a lot to choose from this season.
