After landing in Detroit on Wednesday, Dwight Freeney just missed the cut to play for the Lions on Thanksgiving Thursday.
The veteran pass rusher is inactive for their Turkey Day tussle with the Minnesota Vikings. The Lions signed Freeney after he was cut by the Seattle Seahawks following their Monday night loss.
Defensive end Ezekiel Ansah, on the other hand, is active after being listed as questionable to go with a back injury. Ansah was limited in practice all week. Linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin also returns after missing the last two games with an ankle injury.
The Lions will also be without leading return man Jamal Agnew, who was previously ruled out with a knee injury. Agnew leads the league in punt return average (16.8) and return TDs.
On the Vikings’ side of the ball, tackle Mike Remmers is inactive with a concussion, while defensive end Brian Robison (back) and safety Andrew Sendejo (groin/hamstring) are good to go.
Here are the other injuries worth monitoring:
1. Philip Rivers will have all of his wideouts healthy for Thanksgiving. Los Angeles Chargers receivers Mike Williams (knee) and Travis Benjamin (abdomen) are expected to play, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source informed, after both were listed as questionable to play against the Dallas Cowboys.
