Per Detroit beat writer Dave Birkett, the Lions are planning to be without rookie OT Penei Sewell (ankle) on Sunday vs the Vikings. (Dave Birkett on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Sewell's absence would be a huge hit to the already hurting Detroit offensive line which is also expected to be missing C Frank Ragnow and RT Taylor Decker. While Detroit OC Anthony Lynn is holding out hope Sewell could play it seems like a long shot at this point. With Detroit being without three of their five starting offensive linemen expect Jared Goff to be running around more than usual and some potential struggles in the rushing department for Detroit as Sewell's absence will have an impact across the entire offense.
