The practices for the week are over, which means the Detroit Lions and Minnesota Vikings are required to produce their injury lists and player designations for Sunday’s matchup at US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

Detroit added two starters, center Frank Ragnow and outside linebacker Romeo Okwara, to the injured reserve during the week. Those losses create some big holes in an already thin Lions roster and are the latest in a wave of injuries to hit coach Dan Campbell’s team.

Here’s who will not play and other players with injury designations for the Week 5 matchup between the Lions and Vikings.

After concerns all week over the injury status of offensive tackle Penei Sewell and his hurt ankle, the Lions did not officially rule out the first-round rookie. In fact, no players on the active 53-man roster have been ruled out for Sunday’s game.

Lions - Questionable status

While he’s not out, Sewell is one of several Lions who carry a questionable status into Week 5.

All of the following are listed as questionable:

OLB Trey Flowers (knee)

TE T.J. Hockenson (knee)

OT Penei Sewell (ankle)

RB D’Andre Swift (groin)

RB Jamaal Williams (hip)

Defensive end Michael Brockers was limited in practice throughout the week but carries no injury status into the game.

Standout running back Dalvin Cook is questionable with an ankle injury. He did not practice Wednesday or Thursday and was limited on Friday.
