Rick Wagner, T.J. Lang sit out Detroit Lions practice

Thursday, 05 October 2017, 10:59:48 AM. LB Jarrad Davis, who did not play vs. the Vikings, took part in his fourth straight practice Wednesday

The Detroit Lions practiced Wednesday without the starting right side of their offensive line.

Right tackle Rick Wagner missed practice with ankle and shoulder injuries, and right guard T.J. Lang sat out with a back injury.

Both players were able to finish last week's win over the Minnesota Vikings, and will face another good pass rush Sunday against Julius Peppers, Kawann Short and the 3-1 Carolina Panthers.




Along with Wagner and Lang, defensive tackle Haloti Ngata (shoulder), linebacker Paul Worrilow (knee), running back Dwayne Washington (quad) and wide receiver Kenny Golladay (hamstring) missed practice for injury reasons, and linebacker Steve Longa was away for personal reasons after the death of his father last week.

Washington, who's missed two straight games, and Golladay, who did not play against the Vikings, ran on the side with trainers.

Worrilow is expected to miss at least the next two weeks.

Running back Ameer Abdullah, who left the Vikings' win in the fourth quarter six yards short of his first career 100-yard game, was limited with an ankle injury.

Defensive end Armonty Bryant, whose four-game suspension ended Monday, practiced for the first time since training camp.

The Lions have until next Monday to activate Bryant or release him.
