Saturday night football, Injury report for week 17.

Tonight’s Saturday Night Football game features a fierce matchup between two of the hottest teams in the league, the Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys. Both teams have overcome double-digit wins with nearly unstoppable offenses. Tonight’s game is expected to be a really competitive game with a combined score of over 65 points. The injury report is light but could have a big impact tonight.

Lions @Cowboys Injury ReportDetroit LionsCameron Sutton:

It can’t be ruled out, but Detroit is a no. 1 cornerback is questionable with a finger injury and has not practiced at all this week. He was inconsistent with a coverage grade of 60.2, his best this year. If he doesn’t play, Jerry Jacobs could play CD Lamb. If so, a nearly 150-yard performance and a performance from Cowboys star wide receiver C.J. Gardner-Johnson:

Gardner-Johnson is one of the league’s best defenders, but he hasn’t played since Week 2 after suffering a torn pectoral. Backup Ifeatsu Melifonwu continued to thrive even in his absence. Although his coverage ability is not good, he is good at tackling and has the ability to occasionally pass in rush situations. When Melifonwu plays, you can expect a little less coverage on the field, but a better approach in the box.

James Houston IV: Like Gardner-Johnson, Houston IV has not played in a game since the start of the season. Before the injury, he looked like the best option to face Aidan Hutchinson. Houston is sorely missing starting offensive lineman John Kominski as he has two sacks on the season. While the Houston IV is still there, make sure Dak’s pocket is relatively clean aside from some pressure from the Dallas Cowboys on Hutchinson.Jonathan Hankins: Knee and ankle injuries will continue to affect the Cowboys at nose tackle.

Linebacker Mazie Smith is slowly improving, but is still an average player on a defense that ranks 17th in the league. Given how dominant the Lions’ offensive line and running game are, I expect Dallas to struggle to stop him. Find great games from Jameer Gibbs and David Montgomery
