Game status: Kenny Golladay and Danny Amendola are INACTIVE for Week 12 vs. the Texans.

Wednesday update: Golladay is expected to miss Thursday’s game, according to Jeremy Fowler.

Tuesday update: Golladay was a non-participant on the practice report for Tuesday. He was given a limited designation on Monday, but that was an estimation instead of actual practice. With the Lions playing Thursday, Golladay looks unlikely to suit up again.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay was able to get in a limited practice on Thursday, per the Lions injury report. Golladay has missed his last two games with a hip injury. He was able to get a limited practice in last week, but finished the week off by not practicing and then missing their matchup with the Panthers.

This week the Lions take on the Houston Texans in the early game on Thanksgiving Day. After showing absolutely no offense against the Panthers last week, as they were shut out 20-0. Getting Golladay back would be huge, as their offense isn’t the same without him.

Both Danny Amendola and D’Andre Swift weren’t able to practice on Monday, so their statuses look to be trending toward not playing. Matthew Stafford was able to get a limited practice in as well, likely giving him the start again on Thursday despite his banged up thumb.
