One thing you can count on with the Detroit Lions is that they are never, ever boring. Follow the latest news including injuries, roster moves and more here daily from Oakland Press beat writer Paula Pasche. Plus you'll find regular commentary about the team.


Detroit Lions Calvin Johnson, Reggie Bush out vs. Vikings

As expected, Detroit Lions Calvin Johnson and Reggie Bush will not play today against the Vikings in Minnesota. 

The Lions wide receiver has been struggling with an ankle injury for two weeks. It was aggravated last Sunday in the loss to the Buffalo Bills.

Can the Lions win without Megatron? Well, he had just three catches for 19 yards in the last two games and the Lions were 1-1.

Expect to see Jeremy Ross, Corey Fuller and possibly Ryan Broyles more involved in the passing game.

Bush injured his ankle last Sunday and was not able to finish the game. He was hoping to play today and said it would be a game-time decision although he didn't practice all week.

Joique Bell will return after a one-game absence with a concussion. Look for Bell, George Winn and Theo Riddick to pick up the slack in the run game.

Other Lions inactives today: tight end Joe Fauria, linebacker Travis Lewis, defensive end Larry Webster, tackle Garrett Reynolds and quarterback Kellen Moore.
