Carey (hamstring) is inactive for Thursday's game versus the Vikings.

EDGE Analysis

Limited in practice on this short week, Carey may miss just one game as a result of the hamstring injury suffered this past Sunday. No matter, the Lions will be without a key member of the special teams unit.

Carey injured his hamstring during Sunday's win over the Jaguars, Kyle Meinke of MLive Media Group reports.

EDGE Analysis

Carey's absence wouldn't have much of an impact on the Lions' defense, but they'll miss him on special teams if he's forced to miss an extended period of time.

Carey signed a one-year contract extension with the Lions on Wednesday, the Detroit Free Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Detroit has placed an emphasis on special teams under general manager Bob Quinn, and this deal is yet another instance of such. Carey, who likely makes his biggest impact on punt coverage, is among the best gunners in the league and his seven special teams tackles leads the team. He's now set to remain a Lion through the 2017 campaign.

Carey (ribs) will play Sunday against the Rams, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Carey was limited this week in practice early this week but was a full participant on Friday, giving him the green light to play Sunday. He'll likely assume his role as reserve safety behind Glover Quin, but should see plenty of snaps on special teams.

Carey (undisclosed) has been removed from the active/non-football injury list and can return to practice, Lions' writer Tim Twentyman reports.

EDGE Analysis

It was never disclosed why Carey was on the NFI list, but he'll be able to practice for the fist time this training camp. Detroit's safety position seems to be up for grabs at this point and Carey will have the opportunity to earn some play time in the coming weeks.
