We already took a look at the Kansas City Chiefs injury report Wednesday and it included just one name -- WR Jonathan Baldwin. The Detroit Lions injury report for today includes a few more names than that. Actually, six more names.

Lions that didn't practice on Wednesday: S Louis Delmas (hip), DT Nick Fairley (foot), T Jason Fox (foot), WR Calvin Johnson (ankle), DE Kyle Vanden Bosch (non-injury related). 

Lions that were limited in practice on Wednesday: CB Alphonso Smith (foot), WR Maurice Stovall (hand). 

The big name on there is Calvin Johnson, otherwise known as Megatron. We never wish for anyone to be injured but I certainly would not have minded if Megatron missed Sunday's game against the Chiefs. Unfortunately, it looks like he'll be fine and will play on Sunday. He says he just rolled his ankle last week so missing today is just a matter of relaxing the ankle
