The Detroit Lions are hoping to get some reinforcements back as they prepare for a Week 3 matchup with the Arizona Cardinals. The team expects to have wide receiver Kenny Golladay available after he missed the first two games with a hamstring injury, according to Adam Schefter.

Golladay injured his hamstring in the team’s Wednesday practice leading up to Week 1. He did not play in Week 1 and then sat out practice all this past week. Schefter is reporting the team thought Golladay was close to playing in Week 2, but did not want to risk further aggravating the injury.

Through two games, T.J. Hockenson leads the pass catchers with nine receptions for 118 yards and a touchdown. Danny Amendola is the leading wide receiver with seven receptions for 102 yards, followed by rookie Quintez Cephus at six receptions for 97 yards. Amendola and Marvin Jones lead the team with 14 targets apiece.
