The Detroit Lions are going to be shorthanded on Sunday, while the Chicago Bears are going to be healthier than expected.

For the Lions, Detroit announced late on Saturday night that Brandon Pettigrew was questionable with a knee injury. He is now inactive. With Eric Ebron already declared out, the Lions are down to one active tight end, Tim Wright.

The Lions got more bad news as Joique Bell and James Ihedigbo, who were both labeled as questionable on Friday, are inactive for Sunday's game.

On Chicago's side, Martellus Bennett was injured in Thursday's practice and was labeled questionable on Friday after not participating in that day's practice. However, he was able to recover quickly enough to play today.

Cutler will also be getting a different key receiver back, as Alshon Jeffery is active for the first time since Week 1. Jeffery was limited in practice all week, so his active status doesn't come as much of a surprise.

Here is the full inactive report for both teams:

Lions inactives:

DT Haloti Ngata
LB DeAndre Levy
TE Brandon Pettigrew
TE Eric Ebron
S James Ihedigbo
RB Joique Bell
OT Corey Robinson

Bears inactives:
