All three players haven’t practiced this week and their availability for Sunday’s pivotal NFC North matchup in Chicago is very much in question.
Ansah (ankle) and Bentley (knee) were injured early in the Dallas game and did not return. Neither player has practiced since.
Hilliard injured a knee against Cincinnati Oct. 20 and has been sidelined since. Head coach Jim Schwartz characterized Hilliard's injury as "medium term" meaning the Lions could be without him for a couple more weeks.
The team signed veteran defensive end
Safety Louis Delmas returned to the portion of practice open to the media after sitting out Tuesday and Wednesday. The Lions are simply sticking to the plan with Delmas and limiting the wear and tear on that sore left knee in between games.
