Detroit’s first injury report for the Week 11 matchup with the Cleveland Browns reveals a banged-up Lions offense. Wednesday’s practice saw starting quarterback Jared Goff sit out entirely, while top two running backs D’Andre Swift and Jamaal Williams were each limited with injuries.

Goff sat out with a strained oblique muscle he suffered in the Week 10 tie with the Steelers. It could keep him out for Sunday’s game. If Goff can’t go, Tim Boyle is the presumptive replacement.

Swift (shoulder) and Williams (thigh) are battling to get back on the field. Swift set a career-high with 130 yards rushing on 33 carries in Pittsburgh. Williams has missed the last two games with the thigh injury. In addition, rookie Jermar Jefferson sat out with the ankle injury he suffered scoring a touchdown and getting horse-collar tackled by Steelers safety Minkah Fitzpatrick.

OLB Trey Flowers and OT Matt Nelson were also out. Starting safety Tracy Walker was limited, which is a good sign for the Lions’ top defensive back. He suffered a concussion in the Steelers game, but the fact he’s already practicing is promising for his ability to face the Browns on Sunday. Rookie CB Jerry Jacobs was a full participant. Jacobs, who starts opposite Amani Oruwariye, left Sunday’s tie with a groin issue.
