ALLEN PARK, Mich. - The Detroit Lions have been without tight end Brandon Pettigrew at practice this week, and will likely not have him Saturday night against the Atlanta Falcons.
Pettigrew is doubtful for the Lions game Saturday, after suffering an ankle injury December 9 against the Packers. He has not practiced or played since injuring it in the first quarter of the team's loss in Green Bay.
Safety Louis Delmas is listed as questionable, but is expected to play for the second consecutive week.
Safety Don Carey (knee), cornerback Chris Houston (hamstring), wide receiver Calvin Johnson (knee), running back Mikel Leshoure (calf), and linebacker DeAndre Levy (ankle) were all listed as probable.
