The final injury report for the Detroit Lions is out, and it’s not particularly promising.
Detroit Lions Week 1 injury report: Golladay doubtful, Vaitai OUT vs. Bears.
Star wide receiver Kenny Golladay is DOUBTFUL to play against the Chicago Bears, while starting right tackle Halapoulivaati Vaitai has already been declared out.
Golladay suffered a hamstring injury on Wednesday, and did not practice on Thursday nor Friday.
Earlier on Friday, head coach Matt Patricia said they’re trying to be extra careful with soft-tissue injuries like that of Golladay. But he seemed to suggest his injury could cause him to sit for a week or two, in order to prevent a longer-term injury…
“We’re trying to prevent them from being long-term type of soft-tissue injuries,” Patricia said. “So even if we get guys that are tight, that may be on the milder side, maybe a seven-, 10-, 14-day type stuff, we’re trying to prevent the four-week type of injury there.” -Matt Patricia
