  • This pretty much sums up the Detroit Lions' current situation:
  • Nate Burleson is willing to take another pay cut to ensure that he stays with the Lions in 2014. A pay cut is pretty much his only hope of sticking around and not being a cap casualty considering he's currently set to make $5.5 million next year.

  • Speaking of contract situations for 2014, Joique Bell, who is set to be a restricted free agent, is planning to be back in Detroit next year.

  • Rashean Mathis is hoping to return to action this week after missing last week's game because of the flu.

  • LaAdrian Waddle had a walking boot on his left ankle on Tuesday, according to Dave Birkett. That's not a great sign for his status this week.

  • Unlike the Minnesota Vikings, the Lions have a practice scheduled for Christmas afternoon.

  • The broadcast crew for Sunday's Lions/Vikings game is going to feature Gus Johnson, Charles Davis and Charissa Thompson.
