Last week, cornerback Amani Oruwariye was a huge catalyst in Detroit’s upset win over the Arizona Cardinals. There won’t be a repeat performance in Week 16, unfortunately, because the standout will miss the game against the Atlanta Falcons.

Oruwariye was one of two Lions ruled out via injury for Sunday’s game in Atlanta. Oruwariye (thumb) and LB Josh Woods (neck) are both out after not practicing all week.

Seven other Lions are officially listed as questionable, and a few of them are critical pieces:

  • DE Michael Brockers

  • LG Jonah Jackson

  • OLB Julian Okwara

  • WR Kalif Raymond

  • LB Jalen Reeves-Maybin

  • WR Josh Reynolds

  • RB D’Andre Swift

The list does not include TE T.J. Hockenson, who is out for the season after undergoing hand surgery. Quarterback Jared Goff and OT Matt Nelson are also not on the list but remain sidelined with COVID-19 protocols. Goff is not expected to play but has yet to be officially ruled out.
