Bryant Johnson, Vanden Bosch out vs. Bears
DETROIT -- Defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch (neck) is out today against the Bears which is no surprise. He was listed as doubtful on Friday’s injury report. Vanden Bosch did not finish the Thanksgiving game and has not practiced since.
Wide receiver Bryant Johnson is healthy, but inactive. It’s the second time in three games he has been benched. He was also inactive at Dallas.
RB Jahvid Best (toe) and RT Gosder Cherilus (knee) are in. Best practiced three days this week but offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said on Friday that Maurice Morris would get the bulk of the work.
Quarterbacks Matthew Stafford (shoulder) and Shaun Hill (finger) are out.
QB Drew Stanton will start with rookie Zac Robinson backing him up. No third quarterback is designated.
