Detroit Lions: Joique Bell active, Theo Riddick is not; inactive list

DETROIT — Running back Joique Bell, who injured his ribs a week ago, was back on the field Sunday against the Bengals. He had been listed as questionable on Friday’s injury report and had limited practice all week.

Calvin Johnson, who practiced all week on a limited basis, is a full go. He was listed as probable and will start.

Running back Theo Riddick, who suffered a concussion two weeks ago, is inactive today. He practiced for the first time on Friday on a limited basis and was questionable.

Tony Scheffler, who also suffered a concussion in that loss at Green Bay, was ruled out on Friday. This is his third concussion in four years.

Other Lions’ inactives: Wide receiver Nate Burleson, quarterback Kellen Moore, OL Leroy Harris and CB Jonte Green.

If you missed it  on Saturday the Lions released TE Dorin Dickerson who they had signed on Monday. They signed wide receiver Jeremy Ross from the practice squad. Ross is active.
