The Detroit Lions are dealing with injuries up and down their roster heading into Week 10. One player currently banged up is wide receiver Josh Reynolds, who missed the team's last game with a back issue.

Unfortunately, Reynolds won't be making his return on Sunday against the Chicago Bears.

Detroit has officially ruled Reynolds out for Week 10. It's not a surprise since he was unable to suit up for practice this week, but it does leave the Lions even more shorthanded heading into a divisional clash.

Reynolds has been a key part of the passing attack in 2022. He ranks second on the team in targets (42), receptions (26), receiving yards (357) and receiving touchdowns (2) this season. The departure of tight end T.J. Hockenson made Reynolds even more important to the offense, but he'll now miss his second straight contest.

Reynolds' absence now puts extra pressure on top wideout Amon-Ra St. Brown to step up against Chicago. The likes of Kalif Raymond and Tom Kennedy should see expanded roles as well on Sunday.

The Lions are 3-point underdogs ahead of Sunday's NFC North showdown, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
