Multiple Lions Players DNP Wednesday

The Detroit Lions were missing a lot of key players in practice today. 

Most notably, wide receiver Amon Ra St. Brown was absent. 

St. Brown went down with an ankle injury in the second quarter of his Week 3 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings. He was, however, able to return to the game and the tests on his ankle returned nothing seriously wrong. 

This may just be a case of Detroit being extra cautious with their star receiver, as St. Brown has hauled in 23 of 33 targets for 253 receiving yards and three touchdowns this year already.

Another significant name who didn't practice on Wednesday is T.J. Hockenson. 

Last week, it was Hockenson's hip that was bothering him, but this time it's his foot. 

Hockenson played through his hip injury last week, catching three of four targets for 18 yards and his first touchdown of the season. 

The Lions are very banged up heading into a Week 4 clash with the Seattle Seahawks, with all of Hockenson, St. Brown, D'Andre Swift and Josh Reynolds not practicing on Wednesday.
