Reggie Bush expected to play today at New England, but will sit for the second straight week with an ankle sprain.
It’s the fourth game Bush has missed with the wonky ankle. He practiced this week on a limited basis and was listed as questionable for today’s game.
The streak continues for the Lions’ offense that has been without all of its skilled players since Week 3.
Joique Bell will start and will share reps with Theo Riddick and fullback Jed Collins.
Tight end Brandon Pettigrew returns after missing two of the last three games.
Kellen Davis will be inactive for the first time since he signed the week before the game in London.
Right guard Larry Warford (knee) remains out. Travis Swanson will start again in his place.
Defensive tackle C.J. Mosley will start for Nick Fairley (knee).
Also inactive: Wide receiver Ryan Broyles, defensive end Larry Webster and quarterback Kellen Moore.
