A number of Detroit Lions players might need that extra day of rest playing on Monday Night Football will afford them.
The Lions were without running back Reggie Bush (calf), cornerback
Bush missed last week’s game in Philadelphia after re-aggravating a calf injury in pre-game warm-ups. He told reporters after practice today’s absence was just “precautionary” and that he planned to return to the practice field Friday and will play Monday. He returned to practice on Friday last week after sitting out Wednesday and Thursday.
Ansah left last week's game in the second half with a shoulder injury and did not return. His status for Monday is still unclear, but he should benefit from an extra day of rest.
The toe injury for Houston is new. He was dealing with a foot injury heading into last week’s game. It's unclear when the injury happened.
Starting right tackle
It was also a good sign receiver
