- WR Calvin Johnson is question for this weekend’s match up.
- The Lions have ruled out rookie TE Eric Ebron and TE Joseph Fauria for Week 8.
- RB Reggie Bush and TE Brandon Pettigrew are doubtful for Sunday’s game.
- OC Brian Schottenheimer mentioned that all of the team’s running backs will have roles in their offense and he expects them to be decided on a week-to-week basis.
“I think that’s kind of good for us,” Schottenheimer said, via the St Louis Post-Dispatch. “For a defense not to know who they’ve got to prepare for. To know that at any moment it might be a different guy out there.”
