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.
Colts CB Rashaan Melvin left Sunday's loss to the Jaguars with a concussion. He's not a good bet to make it back for Sunday's game at Cincinnati, but we'll see how quickly he moves through the league protocol. CB Chris Milton replaced Melvin in the game and promptly allowed a 52-yard completion to Jaguars WR Keelan Cole.
Colts CB Rashaan Melvin (hamstring, ankle) is active for today's game against the 49ers. He's usable in deeper IDP leagues but obviously carries some re-injury risk after missing Thursday's workout and being limited the other 2 days.
Colts CB Rashaan Melvin is questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers. Melvin didn't miss a snap of last week's game. He turned up limited Wednesday and Friday, though, and missed Thursday's practice altogether. We'll check on his status Sunday.
