Lions DE Trey Flowers (concussion), S Tracy Walker (knee), DT Damon Harrison (knee) and DE Da'Shawn Hand (ankle) are questionable for today's game against the Bears. Flowers progressed to a full practice Wednesday, but we have yet to see that he has gained full clearance to return from his concussion. If he gets that Thursday, he'll be a nice IDP option against the Bears. Walker remained limited all week. The last time he tried to return from this knee injury found him leaving that game in the 1st half. He's too risky for Week 13. Harrison has played through "questionable" tags the past 2 weeks and should be fine. Hand has only appeared in 2 games all season and missed the past 3 with the injury that continued to limit him in practice this week. We'll update the statuses on all 4 around 10:30 a.m. ET. Detroit has already ruled out CB Rashaan Melvin (ribs) for the 2nd straight game.

Lions QB David Blough will start Thursday's game against the Bears, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. QB Jeff Driskel is dealing with a hamstring injury, although he's reportedly healthy enough to serve as the backup. Blough is an undrafted rookie who completed 61% of his passes and averaged 6.8 yards per attempt at Purdue. He posted a 58% completion rate and 6.3 yards per attempt this preseason. Blough figures to be a downgrade even from Driskel. WRs Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones are both extremely shaky fantasy plays on Thanksgiving.

Lions TE T.J. Hockenson (shoulder) is active for today’s game against the Redskins. He was added to the injury report on Saturday, and there was a report this morning that Hockenson wasn’t doing much in warmups. He’s a risky fantasy play today.

Lions TE T.J. Hockenson was added to the injury report on Saturday as questionable with a shoulder. We'll get his official status by noon ET today, but the shoulder issue obviously adds risk to his fantasy outlook. He wasn't a great option anyways with just 4 catches for 53 scoreless yards in 2 games with Jeff Driskel at the helm.

The Lions have ruled DE Trey Flowers (concussion) and S Tracy Walker (knee) out for Sunday's game against Washington. That keeps rookie S Will Harris in the starting lineup in Walker's spot. Detroit will be thin at DE, with Da'Shawn Hand also out.

Lions S Tracy Walker entered Week 11 questionable with a right knee injury that cost him the previous 2 games. He left Week 11 early with a right knee injury. HC Matt Patricia said afterward that he didn't know whether it was the same injury, according to ESPN's Michael Rothstein. We'll see about the outlook here, but IDP owners should expect to miss Walker for at least the next game. Even with Walker active against the Cowboys, Tavon Wilson and Will Harris still started at safety. Wilson looks like a full-timer whether Walker's in or out. Harris' role depends on Walker's involvement.

Lions S Tracy Walker is active for today's game against the Cowboys. He missed the past 2 games with a knee injury and managed just a limited Friday practice this week. Walker remains a risky IDP option. He has also ranked among the position's top fantasy scorers when healthy this season. DT Damon Harrison (groin) is also active after entering the day questionable. DE Romeo Okwara (groin) is inactive.

Lions SS Tracy Walker returned to a limited practice Friday for the 1st time since suffering a knee injury that cost him the past 2 games. Walker is questionable for Sunday's clash with the Cowboys. DT Damon Harrison (groin) is questionable for the game. He has played through questionable tags the past 2 weeks. DE Romeo Okwara (groin) is also questionable. He's not much of an IDP option even if healthy.

Colts WR Devin Funchess will return to practice Wednesday for the 1st time since suffering a collarbone fracture in the season opener, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Funchess landed on IR after Week 1 but could be ready to return with QB Jacoby Brissett for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Funchess would return to a WR corps that's still missing T.Y. Hilton and rookie Parris Campbell. We'll watch his progress this week.

Lions DT Damon Harrison (groin) and DT A'Shawn Robinson (ankle) are active for today's game against the Bears. Both are low-level IDP options. DE Romeo Okwara (groin) is inactive.

The Lions have ruled out S Tracy Walker (knee) for Sunday's game against the Bears. That should mean rookie S Will Harris joining Tavon Wilson in the starting lineup for the 2nd straight game. DE Da'Shawn Hand (ankle) is also out. DT Damon Harrison (groin), DE Romeo Okwara (groin) and DT A'Shawn Robinson (ankle) are questionable for the game. None is a strong IDP option, but we'll update their statuses Sunday morning.

Lions TE T.J. Hockenson exited late in Sunday's loss to the Raiders after taking a big hit. HC Matt Patricia said Monday, though, that Hockenson isn't in the concussion protocol and just had the wind knocked out of him. The rookie will be available for this weekend's game against the Bears.

Lions CB Darius Slay (hamstring) and DT Damon Harrison (groin) are active for today's game against the Raiders. Slay returns after missing last week's game. Harrison merely entered the day questionable. DT A'Shawn Robinson is also active after sustaining a Friday ankle injury that rendered him questionable. MLive's Kyle Meinke says the ankle is clearly a "problem." None of the 3 is a high-level IDP for Week 9.

The Lions have ruled S Tracy Walker (knee) out for Sunday's game against the Raiders. That should leave Tavon Wilson and Will Harris as the top 2 safeties. CB Darius Slay (hamstring) and DT Damon Harrison (groin) are questionable.

11:10am EDT 10/28/19

Lions S Tracy Walker left in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's win over the Giants with a right knee injury and did not return. HC Matt Patricia said after the game that Walker would be in for further evaluation Monday. Rookie S Will Harris saw the biggest playing-time spike, matching starter Tavon Wilson at 82% of the defensive snaps. Harris would likely start in Walker's place if the incumbent misses further time.

The Lions have ruled CB Darius Slay (hamstring) out for Sunday's game against the Giants. DT Damon Harrison (groin) is questionable. He missed only Thursday's practice, though, between full workouts Wednesday and Friday. Harrison's a low-level IDP even if active.

Lions CBs Darius Slay (hamstring) and Quandre Diggs (hamstring) are active for today's game against the Vikings. DL Da'Shawn Hand (elbow) is inactive.

Lions S Quandre Diggs (hamstring) and DE Da'Shawn Hand (elbow) are inactive for tonight's game against the Packers. CB Darius Slay (hamstring) and DT A'Shawn Robinson (knee) are active after hitting the weekend questionable.

Lions TE T.J. Hockenson (concussion) is active for tonight's game against the Packers. The rookie has totaled just 10 targets, 5 catches, 35 yards and 1 TD over his last 3 games.

Lions TE T.J. Hockenson cleared the concussion protocol Sunday and is expected to play against the Packers on Monday night, the Detroit Free Press reports. Hockenson suffered his concussion back in Week 4, before the bye. But he practiced in full this week and appeared on track to play. Congratulations if you waited for the rookie for Week 6.
