The Detroit Lions suffered a huge loss on offense when wide receiver Kenny Golladay left their Week 8 matchup against the Indianapolis Colts in the third quarter with a hip injury. Golladay is one of quarterback Matthew Stafford's favorite targets on offense and is now likely to miss one or more games.

Golladay is considered week-to-week as more tests are being done to determine how many weeks he will in fact be out. This is not the news the Lions wanted to hear as they are in the midst of a 3-4 season and looking to stay in the race for an NFC Wild Card spot.

While Golladay should be back before the end of the season, hip injuries are not always the easiest to come back from and sometimes linger longer than expected. Golladay may take his time and only return when he feels 100 percent healthy. He has already missed two games this season from battling a hamstring injury.

Golladay leads the team with 338 receiving yards on 20 receptions on the season and scored 2 touchdowns as well. His 16.9 yards per reception currently ranks No. 3 among NFL wide receivers. For now, the wide receiver core will be led by veteran Marvin Jones Jr. and Danny Amendola.
