The Lions have signed WR Marvin Hall and waived WR Chris Lacy — the presumed No. 4 WR out of training camp. Hall comes up from Detroit's practice squad. The Lions signed DE Jonathan Wynn to the practice squad.

Da'Shawn Hand (elbow) now OUT for Lions on Sunday against Philly. He did a little more in practice this week but seems like it'll be another week for him at least. He has yet to play this year.

Five players questionable for Detroit:

Possible good news for the Lions — LT Taylor Decker and LB Jarrad Davis participated in media portion of practice Friday. Still see what injury report says and how they react to work but look to be trending in the right direction for Sunday.

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

Matt Patricia said Jarrad Davis adds a layer "of comfort and calmness" in the middle of the defense when he's out there. Said they are pushing toward a good practice Friday and see what happens Sunday. Felt Devon Kennard did a good job in his absence handling some calls and also giving them some leadership in the defense. But getting Davis back would be big.

Lions injury report:

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

C.J. Moore (heel) the only Lions player not spotted at media portion of practice. Da'Shawn Hand (elbow), with a brace on his left arm, did more than I've seen him do in the past but still something to monitor. All other players accounted for and practicing.

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

Jarrad Davis (ankle), Taylor Decker (back), Da'Shawn Hand (elbow) and C.J. Moore (heel) all limited for the Lions. Good news for Detroit that Rashaan Melvin isn't listed at all.

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

All Lions players accounted for at practice Wednesday. Taylor Decker and Jarrad Davis participated in individual drills, which is a good sign and something to watch throughout the week. Unclear how much Da'Shawn Hand did today.

Matt Patricia on the Super Bowl against the Eagles: "I personally try to not look back at that Super Bowl." The Patriots defense struggled against Philadelphia in his last game before taking the Detroit head coaching job. Philly beat New England. Said it's more respect than a rivalry.

Lions officially announce the signing of QB Jeff Driskel and the release of QB Josh Johnson.

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

Matt Patricia said the benching of Jamal Agnew was an "in-game adjustment" when asked if it would be a long-term switch. He had Danny Amendola on punt return and Ty Johnson on kick return. Said it wasn't necessarily a switch to re-center Agnew, who was struggling. Called it a decision that was best for the team.

Lions coach Matt Patricia said the Chargers brought more looks defensively than they had shown before and that his offensive line "handled it really well." Felt there were a lot of quick routes designed and that played a part in the success of the protection. Said he felt Tyrell Crosby worked hard throughout the last week to play and that what they saw in the game looked a lot like what they saw in practice.

Stafford overcomes mistakes to help Lions top Chargers 13-10

Matthew Stafford threw a go-ahead, 31-yard touchdown pass to Kenny Golladay midway through the fourth quarter and Darius Slay made an interception in the end zone with 1:03 left, allowing the Detroit Lions to beat the Los Angeles Chargers 13-10 Sunday...

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

The Lions didn't play particularly well Sunday — especially on special teams — but a critical play on offense and an interception from Darius Slay on defense saved a night filled with mistakes for Detroit in a 13-10 win over the Chargers. It's a game the Lions had to have with Philadelphia and Kansas City next up on the schedule.

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

Horrific end of the half for the Lions and it's kind of emblematic of their day thus far. Offensive drive stalls after some promise. Detroit gives up a big play to allow a late field goal. Big plays have been the big issue for Detroit through the first game-and-a-half. Did them in while blowing an 18-point lead last week late. Now a 47-yard pass allows the Chargers to go from their own 3-yard line to a field goal in 80 seconds. Clock management was not great there by Detroit, although in hindsight the Lions not using their timeouts ended up not giving the Chargers more time to try and score a touchdown. But still, clock management could come up again here if Detroit loses. Special teams have been a big issue, though. Multiple penalties and already a switch at punt returner from Jamal Agnew to Danny Amendola. It's a phase that's really hurting the Lions.
