News: Ihedigbo (knee) was limited in Thursday's practice, the Lions' official site reports. Impact: After inking a two-year contract with the Lions in the offseason, Ihedigbo worked himself into a starting role, when healthy, at strong safety. He was inactive in the opener with his current ailment, which likely won't allow him to match his output (101 tackles, three interceptions, two forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries) from a season ago with the Ravens. As the weekend approaches, his status for Sunday's game in Carolina could become more clear, one way or the other.(RotoWire, )
