- The Detroit Lions' captains this week are Larry Warford (offense), James Ihedigbo (defense) and Don Carey (special teams).
Ziggy Ansah received a $22,050 fine from the NFL for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Jimmy Clausen last week. The hit gave Clausen a concussion and forced the Chicago Bears to go back to Jay Cutler at quarterback this week.
