Brandon Pettigrew (elbow) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Chiefs in London.

Pettigre will sit for a fifth time in seven games, with his only appearances coming in Weeks 1 and 5. It's a small loss for the Detroit running game, but with Eric Ebron (knee) listed as probable, Pettigrew's limited receiving skills won't be missed.
