Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah (ankle) and MLB Tahir Whitehead (abdomen) are active for today's game against Washington. Both entered the weekend questionable but should be find to use as you normally would. Ansah checks in lower in our DL rankings than usual, however, given his more limited role and productivity in last week's return from a high ankle sprain.

Recent Shark Bites

Lions DT Damon HArrison (knee) is inactive for today's game against the Bears. DE Trey Flowers (concussion) is active, though, and ready to be a solid IDP option. DE Da'Shawn Hand (ankle) and S Tracy Walker (knee) are also active. Hand is no more than a low-level factor. A healthy Walker has been a weekly IDP starter this season, but he carries significant risk this week. Walker previously returned for Week 11 but left that game early.

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.

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 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.

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.
