The Lions will be without cornerback Jacob Lacey for Monday’s game at Chicago.
Lacey did not return to practice this week after suffering a concussion last week in a victory at Philadelphia and has been ruled out on Saturday’s injury report. Lacey started at right cornerback against the Eagles.
Rookie Bill Bentley, who has also started at right cornerback this season, is listed as doubtful with a shoulder injury. Bentley left the Eagles game with the injury and only returned to practice Friday and Saturday in a limited fashion.
If Bentley can’t play, the Lions will turn to either Jonte Greeen or Alphonso Smith to fill the right cornerback spot opposite Chris Houston.
Defensive tackle Corey Williams is questionable after returning to the practice field for the first time this week since undergoing knee surgery at the end of September. Williams didn’t practice Saturday and was limited Thursday and Friday.
The team listed defensive end Cliff Avril (back), safety Louis Delmas (knee), defensive end Ronnell Lewis (eye), tight end Brandon Pettigrew (knee), linebacker Stephen Tulloch (knee) and receiver Titus Young (knee) as probable.
