    10/19/14TEEric EbronHAMSTRINGDOUBTFULLions tight ends Eric Ebron (hamstring) and Joseph Fauria (ankle) are among the team's inactives for the game against New Orleans. Also sitting out are wideout Calvin Johnson (ankle), running back Theo Riddick (hamstring), quarterback Kellen Moore, offensive lineman Garrett Reynolds and defensive end Larry Webster.
    10/19/14TEJoseph FauriaANKLEOUTLions tight end Joseph Fauria, who's missed four straight games, ran Monday on his injured ankle for the first time and said he felt fine, reports the Detroit News.
    10/19/14WRCalvin JohnsonANKLEQUESTIONABLELions wideout Calvin Johnson has never missed three straight games in his eight-year career. It could happen if Detroit holds him out Sunday against the Falcons in London.

    "I'm going to tell you the same thing every week: I'm getting better," Johnson said, via the Detroit News. "Moving around a lot more so I'm feeling good."

    With the Lions on a bye Week 9, Detroit might prefer to rest Johnson to get his injured right ankle close to 100 percent for the home stretch. Johnson did some on-field drills last week and is running this week.

    "If I'm good enough to play, I'm going to play," Johnson said. "I'll just leave it at that."
    10/19/14RBTheo RiddickHAMSTRINGDOUBTFULLions running back Theo Riddick, who missed the win over New Orleans with a hamstring injury, told the Detroit News he expects to play Sunday in London against the Falcons.
