The Lions were without three offensive starters and two more key players at Wednesday’s practice ahead of a crucial game this weekend versus the defensively-stout Ravens.

Running back Ameer Abdullah was sidelined with a neck injury, guard T.J. Lang was sidelined with a foot injury and center Travis Swanson was sidelined with a knee injury.

The Ravens (6-5) have allowed the seventh fewest yards and the second fewest points in the NFL.

The Lions (6-5) were also missing return man Jamal Agnew and recently-signed defensive end Dwight Freeney on Wednesday. Agnew, who sat out last week’s loss to the Vikings, is still dealing with a knee injury. Freeney’s absence was not injury related.

On the positive side of things, Matthew Stafford took part in a full practice after injuring his ankle versus the Vikings.

He’s in line to start his 108th consecutive game Sunday in Baltimore.
