Lions RB Ameer Abdullah (ankle) took full practice reps again Friday. He was removed from the injury report, so he’s good to go for Week 5.

Scouting Report

Week 6 at New Orleans Saints

Even though Ameer Abdullah received 10 of the Lions' 15 rushing attempts last Sunday versus Carolina, it was Zach Zenner who scored the team’s lone TD on the ground. After running for 94 yards at Minnesota in Week 4, Abdullah finished with just 31 yards in the loss to the Panthers, as Detroit was trying to play catchup for much of the afternoon. On Sunday, the Lions top RB will be facing a New Orleans defense ranked No. 17 against the rush. Therefore, consider Abdullah an RB2 option, regardless who is starting at quarterback for the team.
