Three could sit out

Three potential starters are questionable for Saturday’s third preseason game against Indianapolis at Ford Field. Running back Kevin Smith (bruised hip), cornerback Phillip Buchanan (neck) and linebacker Ernie Sims (ribs) sat out Thursday’s practice and are listed as day to day by coach Jim Schwartz.

On the bright side, tight end Brandon Pettigrew, a first-round pick, is expected to see his first preseason action after practicing with the team all week. He is returning from a quad injury.

Also, the Lions signed place kicker Billy Cundiff because Swayze Waters has a hamstring issue. Waters was released. He was signed to kick in the preseason while Jason Hanson recovers from minor knee surgery. The Lions claimed defensive end Orion Martin off waivers from Miami.
