Detroit Lions' Week 3 Thursday Injury Report

Read more on the Detroit Lions' Week 3 injury report released Thursday.

The Detroit Lions understand the importance of getting off to a good start this season, especially when facing a divisional rival.

Last season, head coach Dan Campbell and his very young football team experienced their first victory at home, against the Minnesota Vikings, in fairly dramatic fashion in Week 13. Amon-Ra St. Brown secured a game-winning touchdown on the final play of the game.
