Lions defensive tackle Haloti Ngata is dealing with a calf injury and has been ruled out for the Sunday game against Chicago, per Justin Rogers of MLive.com.

Lions defensive tackle Haloti Ngata was limited in practice Friday with a shoulder problem and is considered questionable for the Sunday game against Minnesota. Ngata made his debut with Detroit in Week 1 and contributed to three tackles.
The Lions activated two of their most important players Monday, removing running back Joique Bell from the physically unable to perform list and removing defensive tackle Haloti Ngata from the non-football injury list, per the team's website. Bell was recovering from knee and Achilles surgeries, while Ngata was dealing with hamstring issues. Both players practiced Monday and are expected to be ready for the team's season opener.
