NFL Injury Report:
The Detroit Lions will face off against the Chicago Bears
tonight without their two starting cornerbacks, Jacob Lacey and Bill Bentley,
reports Kevin Seifert of ESPN.
Cornerback Jacob Lacey (concussion) was ruled out and cornerback Bill Bentley (shoulder) is doubtful, which likely means the Lions'
top three cornerbacks Monday night will be Chris Houston, rookie Jonte Green and the just-resigned Alphonso Smith.
Lacey has been ruled out due to a concussion, while Bentley
is hampered by a shoulder injury that has him doubtful for the game. This will
certainly put the Lions at a disadvantage against Jay Cutler, Brandon Marshall
Defensive tackle Corey Williams is the only other Lions’ player
listed as questionable for tonight’s game. He wasn’t able to practice Saturday
as he recovers from a knee injury, but Detroit is holding out hope that he’ll
be able to play in some capacity tonight.

Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall took to Twitter following the game Monday night to call out Lions defensive lineman Ndomukong Suh for his sack of Jay Cutler.

Hey, at least Ndamukong Suh didn’t stomp on Jay Cutler after sacking him during Monday Night Football between the Bears and Lions. Cutler returned to the game, but had to go to the locker room early during halftime for rib evaluation.

And even after...
