We have our first official injury report for the 2021 season. The Lions released the practice status report following Wednesday’s prep session for the Week 1 matchup with the San Francisco 49ers.

The good news: The team’s two top offensive weapons were full participants. Running back D’Andre Swift (groin) and tight end T.J. Hockenson (shoulder) are looking good after missing time in the preseason with their respective injuries.

The not-so-good news: Five other Lions were limited participants in Wednesday’s practice.

Brocker, Onwuzurike and Williams all play the same spot, which leaves the Lions perilously thin at defensive end if they are unable to go on Sunday. The injuries to Brockers and Onwuzurike have lingered throughout the offseason programs and have been presented as more precautionary inactivity than injuries that would sideline them for games.
