The Lions boast one of the premier rush defenses in the NFL. They rank third in yards given up (992), sixth in touchdown surrendered on the ground (5) and fourth in yards yielded per rushing attempt (3.7). But they are 26th in passing yards allowed (3,147) and their pass rush has been surprisingly impotent with just 27 sacks.

Bush has been able to play through injuries throughout the season, so it wouldn't be surprising if he played Sunday after practicing just one day this week. While most reports have him sitting out Thursday, he was able to do some very light running drills.
Johnson sat out of Wednesday's practice due to a knee injury. He's been dealing with the injury for a few weeks, but it hasn't prevented him from playing on Sunday.
