No startling news for the Lions on active players against the Bears at Soldier Field today.
Nick Fairley remains out and hasn’t practiced since his knee injury on Oct. 26.
As expected Cornelius Lucas will start at right tackle in place of LaAdrian Waddle who was placed on injured reserve this week.
Cornerback Josh Thomas, who practiced for the first time on Thursday, after he was claimed off waivers from the Jets, is active. Expect to see him on special teams.
Other Lions inactives: Wide receiver Ryan Broyles, cornerback Mohammed Seisay, guard Rodney Austin, defensive end Larry Webster, defensive tackle Caraun Reid and quarterback Kellen Moore.
Bears inactives include right guard Kyle Long (hip). Long vs. Ndamukong Suh was expected to be a key matchup in the game.
Also: DT Will Sutton, kicker Robbie Gould, QB David Fales, S Chris Conte, CB Terrance Mitchell and DE Trevor Scott.
