Lions to have most of their injured players Week 3
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Lions will have most of their injured players available Week 3 against the Packers.

Ezekiel Ansah, Nick Fairley and George Johnson may have entered the week as questionable, but all three are active. The team will also have Joique Bell and Don Carey. Bell and Carey were listed as probable, so that shouldn't come as a surprise.

Lions list seven from defense on injury report
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Lions defense is likely to be a bit shorthanded for Week 3 against the Packers, with three players expected to miss Sunday's game due to injuries.

Linebacker Travis Lewis (quadriceps) and defensive back Cassius Vaughn (ankle) have been ruled out for Sunday's game, while safety James Ihedigbo (neck) is doubtful and seems likely to miss the game.

Additionally, defensive linemen Ezekiel Ansah (knee), Nick Fairley (biceps) and George Johnson (groin) are considered questionable for the game, while safety Don Carey (hamstring) is probable.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley has regained his starting spot for the Monday season opener against the Giants, per the Detroit Free Press. He had been ousted in favor of C.J. Mosley.

The benching was considered a motivational tactic to inspire Fairley to work hard. It apparently paid off.
