With their playoff hopes on the line, the Detroit Lions will be without two of their starting offensive linemen, as both Travis Swanson (concussion) and Rick Wagner (ankle) were both declared OUT on Friday’s injury report.

T.J. Lang, listed as “questionable,” is also nursing a foot injury, but will give it a go and is listed as ACTIVE against the Chicago Bears.

Running back Ameer Abdullah, who may or may not have been a healthy scratch last week is active for Saturday. The Lions, instead, decided to make make Dwayne Washington and Zach Zenner inactive this week.

For the Chicago Bears, rookie tight end Adam Shaheen is a surprise inactive. He practiced all three days this week, but was limited with a chest injury. That could be a big break for the Lions, considering how much they have struggled to defend tight ends over the past couple games.
