The Detroit Lions were in danger of heading into their Week 5 matchup shorthanded. Their go-to playmakers, T.J. Hockenson and D'Andre Swift, were both listed as questionable due to injuries.

But thankfully, it looks as if Detroit's best weapons are both healthy enough to give it a go.

Penei Sewell and Jamaal Williams are also healthy enough to suit up in Week 5.

This is a huge boost for Detroit heading into a matchup against the explosive Minnesota Vikings' offense. Kirk Cousins and the Vikings have put up at least 30 points in two of their last three outings. It would've been tough to see Detroit keeping pace without studs like Hockenson, Swift and Sewell.

Even with the solid injury updates, Detroit still enters this one as 10-point underdogs, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
