Eight Lions were marked as questionable for Sunday’s matchup against the Chicago Bears, including top wide receiver Marvin Jones. In addition, linebacker DeAndre Levy and defensive end Ezekiel Ansah have both been ruled out.

It is important to note that “questionable” is now the highest status for game time probability. With probable removed, expect to see many, if not all, of the Lions marked as questionable playing on Sunday; this was the case last week against the Packers; every player who wasn’t downgraded ended up playing. With that in mind, don’t expect Marvin Jones to sit on Sunday.

For the Bears, five players have been marked doubtful, including quarterback Jay Cutler, linebacker Danny Trevathan and running backs Ka’Deem Carey and Jeremy Langford. In addition, top wide receiver Alshon Jeffery was marked as questionable, but the nature of his injury changed between Thursday and Friday:
