Official Detroit Lions/Minnesota Vikings Injury Reports

Now, using the stuff that actually comes with my blog rather than spending an hour or so formatting tables, here are the official injury reports for tomorrow's contest.

It looks like we can expect, as Sean said in our Five Good Questions, to see Dan Orlovsky at quarterback for the Lions tomorrow.  Orlovsky looked. . .well, he looked pretty bad in the action he saw on Sunday against the Bears, I won't lie to you.  Here are his numbers:


vs CHI / 10.5.08 Passing Rushing
Comp Att Pct Yds TD Rush Yds Avg TD
Dan Orlovsky 13 23 56.5 97 0

97 yards on 13 completions.  Who does this guy think he is?  And those numbers, for some reason, don't include the interception he threw that was returned for a Chicago touchdown.  He "amassed" those numbers in about 1 2/3 quarters worth of work.

Whoever is behind center for Detroit should have both Roy Williams and Calvin Johnson at their disposal. . .physically, anyway.  From what I saw last week, Roy Williams' mental state should rightfully be in question.

Now, the injury report for the Vikings:

Jayme Mitchell knee 8.11.2008
Michael Boulware wrist 8.30.2008

Rice and Berrian are both on the injury list again, and it sure would be nice to see them both out there for this one.  Rice has been out for a couple of weeks, while Berrian has played through his injuries and actually played pretty well during the last two games, particularly on Monday night.

And there they are. . .all the bumps and bruises that need to be considered going into tomorrow.  Enjoy!
