Lions cornerback Jacob Lacey was the only active player who did not participate in Fridays' practice.
Lacey is recovering from a concussion, and the odds he will play against the Chicago Bears on Monday are decreasing. Lions cornerback Alphonso Smith or rookie cornerback Jonte Green will receive significant if Lacey is unable to play.
Detroit defensive end Cliff Avril (back), cornerback Bill Bentley (shoulder), safety Louis Delmas (knee), tight end Brandon Pettigrew (knee), lineback Stephen Tulloch (knee), defensive tackle Corey Williams (knee) and receiver Titus Young (knee) were limited in practice, while defense end Ronnell Lewis (eye) fully participated. Lewis was upgraded from limited to full, however, Bentley and Delmas were upgraded from no to limited practice. Source: MLive.com Attached Thumbnails

In football, they say the tape doesn't lie.
The same can be said for 911 calls.
Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh has been accused of leaving the scene of an accident last week by the driver of the other vehicle, Steve Vines.
Suh and Vines were involved in a fender-bender the morning of Oct. 11 near the Lions' practice facility in Allen Park.
It’s not easy to get anything out of Lions DT Ndamukong Suh, but it seems like he wants to remain with the Lions when his contract is voidable after the 2014 season.
Speculation about Suh’s desire to remain in Detroit arose when his sister and public relations manager Ngum Suh tweeted what initially looked to be a cryptic post on her brothers desire to stay with the Lions.
ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- Detroit Lions bad boy Ndamukong Suhs reputation has gotten as nasty off the field as it is on it.
Just last week:
Suh was accused of sideswiping another vehicle near the Lions' practice facility, berating the other driver and leaving the scene of the accident (police closed the case without any arrests or tickets being issued).
He got sued, along with...
Lions defensive tackle Corey Williams is participating in his first practice since undergoing knee surgery recently.
Williams had knee surgery on September 25 after injuring it this offseason. He was limited in practices prior to the surgery, and had been on the sidelines prior to today.
However, Williams was fully participating in the first 30 minutes of practice media members...
Lions defensive tackle Corey Williams is not participating in today's final practice before Monday's game against the Chicago Bears.
Williams, who is recovering from knee surgery, did not practice this past Wednesday, but was on the field Thursday and Friday. Detroit may have given Williams today off to rest, or he might not be ready to play.
In addition, Detroit Lions...
When a team can put up the sort of offensive numbers that the Detroit Lions can, it is easy to ignore what they do defensively. So far in the 2012 season, the Lions defense is giving up an average of 324 yards of total offense, good enough for ninth best in the league.
The strength of the Lions’ defense lies in its front four. Defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is still a terror...
Lions rookie cornerback Jonte Green or veteran Alphonso Smith will likely start against the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football.
The Lions ruled cornerback Jacob Lacey (concussion) out for Monday's game, while rookie cornerback Bill Bentley (shoulder) is listed as doubtful. Bentley was limited in practices this week, and it is very unlikely he will play.
As a result, Green...
It appears Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh did the right thing after all by making the first call to 911 when he was involved in a two-car incident last week on the Southfield Freeway.
Suh called 911 at 6:28 a.m. Oct. 11 after the Range Rover he was driving collided with the 1999 Ford Escort that Stephen Vines, 43, of Livonia was driving. Vines called 911 at 6:29 a...
Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh attempted to clear up speculation that he is counting down the days until he can join another team after his his sister and public relations manager, Ngum Suh, randomly posted, "Thank u Jesus! Only 2.5 more years! #Freedom" on Twitter Saturday. Many speculated she was referring to the amount of time left on her brother's contract...
If one was struggling to locate a list of top running backs in the NFL they would only need to review the Detroit Lions schedule -- making the task of stopping Monday night's opposing running back Matt Forte a challenge, but not necessarily foreign.
Detroit Lions (2-3) at Chicago Bears (4-1)
This week, I put the Bears 1st in my Power Rankings. With the exception of the Thursday Night loss to Green Bay, the Bears have looked great this season, winning every game by 16 or more and only surrendering 7 sacks in 4 games. While you can’t completely ignore what happened on Thursday Night Football, it’s unreasonable to put too much...
The Detroit Lions and Chicago Bears will meet for the 165th time ever on Monday night.
The Bears lead the all-time series 94-65-5. Last season, they split the season series with Detroit winning the first game 24-13 in Week Five and Chicago winning the second game 37-13 in Week Ten.
The Bears are coming off a bye week and are currently on a three-game winning streak outscoring opponents...
Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson caught a touchdown pass against the Eagles last week, but it was nullified when the referee ruled Johnson pushed off on cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha.
"There was hardly any contact," Johnson told Chris McCosky of the Detroit News. "I was just feeling where I was at. I went back and watched it on film and I was like, 'Come on, ref...
Lance Louis has thus far been the most consistent offensive lineman on the team during the 2012 season. Louis has been a solid run blocker and an even better pass blocker. However to this point in the five games he's started he hasn't faced a player of the same caliber as Ndamukong Suh.
Suh has been a dominant force since his arrival in the NFL. He leads the league...
