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.
