LaAdrian Waddle did not practice Wednesday due to a concussion.

Waddle will be unable to play this weekend unless he can pass all of the league mandated concussion tests. He should be viewed as inactive until he can pass the mandated protocol.

Lions released RB William Powell from the practice squad.

Powell wasn't going to be a serious contributor to the Lions and he is no longer a part of the Detroit organization.

Ezekiel Ansah (toe) did not participate in practice Wednesday.

Ansah is questionable for Sunday's contest and will likely be a game time decision.

Update:  Calvin Johnson (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday.

Megatron traveled with the Lions to London but coach Jim Caldwell has said that he will not put his All-Pro wide receiver back on the field until he is 100 percent. We will have to wait on his official status for Sunday but he is questionable at best right now.

Theo Riddick (hamstring) returned to practice on Wednesday.

Riddick is recovering well from his hamstring issue, but even if he does make it back for this week, both Joique Bell and Reggie Bush should be on-hand to dominate the carries against the Falcons.

Reggie Bush (ankle) practiced on Wednesday.

It looks like Bush is going to make it back in time to play Sunday against the Falcons though you'll want to check practice reports during the latter half of the week to be sure. The backfield is a little crowded, but with Atlanta giving up 137.7 rushing yards per game, there's plenty to go around.

Brandon Pettigrew did not practice on Wednesday.

There was no injury reported for Pettigrew, so this could just be a scheduled day off. Consider him day-to-day and check the practice reports later in the week.

Eric Ebron (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday.

Ebron is still nursing the hamstring issue that kept him out of action in Week 7. The strain was a little more significant than originally thought, so he'll just take is day by day. He was a low-end option before the injury, so it's doubtful that he's missed much right now.

Calvin Johnson (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday.

Johnson made the trip to London, but that doesn't necessarily mean he's going to be able to play. A day off on Wednesday doesn't really mean anything as he gets those every week anyway. Just monitor the practice schedule closer to the weekend and see where he's at then. That should give you a better idea as to whether or not he'll suit up.
