Injuries: Lions DT Tyrunn Walker has broken fibula

Lost in the frenzy of the controversial Monday night finish were the injuries the 0-4 Lions piled up.

Detroit's starting defensive tackle Tyrunn Walker is having surgery for a broken fibula and a dislocated ankle on Tuesday, Lions head coach Jim Caldwell announced on Tuesday. Walker will miss the remainder of the season.

Walker has been a pleasant surprise for a struggling Lions defense, which hasn't had its star linebacker DeAndre Levy on the field. Walker played his first three seasons with the Saints before signing with the Lions in March.

Haloti Ngata (calf) and Eric Ebron (knee) were also injured during the crushing defeat in Seattle.

Here are other injuries we're keeping track of on Tuesday:

  1. Andrew Luck (shoulder) was limited in practice and coach Chuck Pagano said the Colts quarterback is trending in the right direction. Matt Hasselbeck, who filled in for Luck in Week 4, was sick.

Vontae Davis and Henry Anderson both missed practice.

  1. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said running back Fred Jacksonsuffered a high ankle sprain on Monday night.

  1. Rapoport reported Giants tight end Daniel Fells, who had foot surgery this week, was diagnosed with MRSA, a staph infection that is resistant to treatment.
