Detroit at Chicago

  • 1444338187
    For the second time in five days, a fan has passed away in a bathroom near Paul Brown Stadium.
    Jason Garrett doesn't want Greg Hardy making anymore ridiculous statements about guns or Tom Brady's wife.
    For the second time in three days, the Dolphins have fired someone on their coaching staff.
    Russell Wilson seems kind of excited about returning to the city where he was born.
    Things were going so well for Chip Kelly. He arrived in Philadelphia in 2013 and won 10 games in each of his first two seasons. Now the team is off to a 1-3 start and fans are angry.

    10/07/15DEEzekiel AnsahShoulderQUESTIONABLELions defensive end Ezekiel Ansah (groin) is listed as active Monday at Seattle, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

    Ansah missed practice Thursday but turned in limited showings both Friday and Saturday, forecasting an appearance in Week 4. Through three games, he's supplemented a team-best two sacks with 12 tackles (10 solo).

    (Updated 10/05/2015)
    10/07/15RBJoique BellAnkleQUESTIONABLELions running back Joique Bell (ankle) didn't practice Thursday, and Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press noted that the running back isn't expected to play Sunday against the Cardinals.

    The Lions haven't officially ruled out Bell for the Week 5 contest, but Birkett's report paves the way for Ameer Abdullah to head the backfield for a second week in a row. If Monday's loss to the Seahawks is any indication, Abdullah will earn most of the carries, while Theo Riddick serves in a pass-catching role.

    (Updated 10/08/2015)
    10/07/15TEEric EbronKneeQUESTIONABLELions tight end Eric Ebron (knee) told ESPN he could be out up to three weeks.

    Ebron's chances of playing this week probably are not good, but it does not appear he will require surgery for his setback. He could return to action before the end of October.

    Brandon Pettigrew (hamstring), assuming he is healthy, and Timothy Wright will handle the tight end duties for the Lions until Ebron is able to return.

    (Updated 10/07/2015)
    10/07/15SJames IhedigboQuadricepsQUESTIONABLELions strong safety James Ihedigbo has reported to OTAs and will likely attend minicamp despite his stated desire for a new contract, the Detroit News is reporting.
    10/07/15LBDeAndre LevyHipPROBABLELions linebacker DeAndre Levy (hip) returned to practice Wednesday, The Detroit News reports.

    Levy was forced to sit out of the Lions' Week 4 Monday night contest against the Seahawks with the hip injury, but he returned to practice Wednesday. There is a chance he takes the field Week 5, as the winless Lions play the Cardinals at home.

    (Updated 10/07/2015)
    10/07/15LBTravis LewisAnkleQUESTIONABLEThe Lions placed linebacker Travis Lewis (quad) on injured reserve Saturday. The team replaced Lewis on the active roster with tight end Jordan Thompson, who was signed from the practice squad.
    10/07/15CBRashean MathisCalfQUESTIONABLELions cornerback Rashean Mathis is planning to retire after the two-year contract he signed in March expires, per the Detroit Free Press.
    10/07/15WRLance MooreAnklePROBABLELions veteran wide receiver Lance Moore will not play Thursday night against Washington in the team's second preseason game, ESPN has reported. He will return home after becoming a father.
    10/07/15DTHaloti NgataCalfQUESTIONABLELions defensive tackle Haloti Ngata was limited in practice Friday with a shoulder problem and is considered questionable for the Sunday game against Minnesota.
    10/07/15TEBrandon PettigrewHamstringQUESTIONABLELions tight end Brandon Pettigrew (hamstring) returned to practice Wednesday, The Detroit News reports.

    Wednesday marks Pettigrew's first practice since sustaining the hamstring injury Sept. 13, and he could be ready for the Lions' Week 5 matchup against the Cardinals.

    Fellow tight end Eric Ebron (knee) is also banged up and expected to sit out a couple weeks, which would likely promote Pettigrew to the starting spot for the time being. Tim Wright would also likely see more snaps in Ebron's absence.

    Chicago Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    10/07/15CBAlan BallGroinQUESTIONABLEBears cornerback Alan Ball accrued a season-high nine tackles and batted away a pass in Sunday's 26-0 loss to the Seahawks.

    Though the Bears were beaten handily in Week 3, Ball was one of the team's more impressive performers defensively. In addition to showing activity in stopping the run, Ball was excellent during the Seahawks' final drive before halftime, denying a fade route intended for Jimmy Graham and defending Chris Matthews on another pass attempt.

    (Updated 09/30/2015)
    10/07/15QBJay CutlerHamstringQUESTIONABLEBears quarterback Jay Cutler (hamstring) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Cutler returned Sunday from a one-week absence due to a hamstring injury and didn't miss a beat, completing 28 of 43 passes for 281 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. Considering he was initially given a prognosis of at least two missed games, it isn't a surprise that his practice reps are limited to begin the week.

    As long as the healing process continues unabated, he'll face a Chiefs secondary Sunday that has allowed 311 yards per game and 11 passing touchdowns to quarterbacks this season.

    (Updated 10/07/2015)
    10/07/15WRAlshon JefferyHamstringQUESTIONABLEJeffery (hamstring) was a limited practice participant Thursday, Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    With another limited showing in his back pocket, Jeffery has yet to show that he's in line to return for the first time since the season opener. The release of Friday's injury report will provide a good indication of his Week 5 availability, but if he returns, he could make a mark immediately against a Chiefs defense that has allowed 10 touchdowns to wideouts through four games.

    (Updated 10/08/2015)
    10/07/15LBShea McClellinElbowQUESTIONABLEBears linebacker Shea McClellin recorded nine total tackles in Sunday's 48-23 loss to the Cardinals. For the second straight week, McClellin paced the Bears in stops, benefiting greatly from the Cardinals' decision to run the ball 28 times.
    10/07/15CBSherrick McManisHamstringQUESTIONABLEBears cornerback Tracy Porter (hamstring) is out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, the Chicago Tribune reports.
    10/07/15DTJeremiah RatliffAnkleQUESTIONABLEBears defensive end Jeremiah Ratliff was suspended by the NFL for three games Monday for violating the league's substance abuse policy, per ESPN.com. 
    10/07/15SAntrel RolleAnkleQUESTIONABLEBears safety Antrel Rolle suffered an ankle injury Sunday against the Raiders, ESPN reports.

    A leader on the defense, Rolle has 15 tackles through three games this season. The seriousness of the injury is still unknown.

    (Updated 10/04/2015)
    10/07/15WREddie RoyalAnkleQUESTIONABLERoyal (ankle) missed practice again Thursday, Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Royal hasn't practiced this week due to an ankle injury, leaving only one day to show off his Week 5 viability. If he makes an appearance Sunday against the Chiefs, he may have to contend with Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) for targets for the first time since the season opener.

    (Updated 10/08/2015)
    10/07/15DTWill SuttonElbowQUESTIONABLEBears defensive end Will Sutton (biceps) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

    Sutton was expected to slide back to a bench role with Jeremiah Ratliff (ankle) returning from a three-game suspension, but both players are listed as questionable for Sunday, after logging limited practices throughout the week. If both suit up, Ratliff will probably get the start and play more snaps. Neither warrants IDP consideration.
