Practice Report: Four not at practice

ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- The Detroit Lions added another name to the list of players not in attendance during the media portion of practice Thursday.

Linebacker Ashlee Palmer was not seen working with the linebackers, joining defensive tackle Nick Fairley (shoulder), right tackle Jason Fox (groin) and safety Don Carey (hamstring) as those not there.

If Fox doesn't go Sunday, expect Corey Hilliard, who filled in for Fox in the second half Sunday against Minnesota, to get the start in his place.

What is going on with Palmer is unknown. The Thursday injury report will be released at 4 p.m. ET.
