With a plethora of injured players, the Detroit Lions are already quite shorthanded entering Week 5. So when coach Dan Campbell offers up some positive news on a couple of the walking wounded and their chances for playing in Minnesota on Sunday, it’s a very welcome development.

Campbell had an optimistic tone on both starting offensive tackle Penei Sewell and Pro Bowl tight end T.J. Hockenson. Both players have been either out or limited in practices all week, but Campbell indicated both Hockenson (knee) and Sewell (ankle) are improving in their injury statuses and have a chance to play on Sunday.

The official injury report will be released later on Friday following the final practice of the week. Expect both Hockenson and Sewell to be listed as questionable for Sunday’s NFC North matchup with the Vikings.
