Wilson logged 10 tackles and three TFLs during Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

After being limited in his return from a shoulder injury in Week 4, Wilson never left the field Sunday and ultimately led his team in total tackles and TFLs. However, it wasn't a perfect day for the fifth-year vet, as his missed tackle on Panthers tight end Ed Dickson was a big reason why the latter was able to trot on for a 57-yard gain. While it seems Wilson has returned to a full-time role now that he's healthy again, he'll have his hands full in Week 5 when the Lions take on Drew Brees and the high-powered Saints offense.

Wilson (shoulder) is questioable to play Sunday against the Vikings.

EDGE Analysis

Wilson was a full participant in Friday's practice, so he seems to have favorable odds of suiting up. If he's ultimately ruled out, ascending second-year safety Miles Killebrew will be set to log another start.

Wilson is questionable to return to Monday night's matchup against the Giants due to a shoulder injury, Lions' beat writer Tim TWentyman reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wilson sustained the injury in the third quarter of the contest. He had tallied four tackles prior to leaving the game. Miles Killebrew figures to fill in at strong safety while the 27-year-old is sidelined.

Wilson (shoulder) totaled three tackles in Friday's preseason loss to the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

Wilson donned a no-contact jersey in training camp, so it was good to see him flying around Friday. He logged 40 snaps in total and seems locked in as the starting strong safety ahead of Week 1. It's possible ascending backup Miles Killebrew could push him for playing time as the year goes on, but it's more likely that the Lions get Killebrew more action through the usage of three-safety sets than by taking Wilson off the field entirely.

EDGE Analysis

It's tough to say when Wilson will be back since the nature of his injury hasn't been released. Updates should become available soon, granted Wilson doesn't become cleared soon. The 27-year-old logged 89 tackles, two interceptions, and two pass breakups last season.

Wilson got tangled up with TE Darren Fells on a deep pass over the middle and did not return to practice. This isn't good news for the Lions, as Wilson is their top option at strong safety. Look for Miles Killebrew to fill his role until further notice.
