Lions Injury Report: Calvin Johnson, Reggie Bush, Nick Fairley

By on 11/08/2014 04:00:00 PM

The Detroit Lions play host to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday and for the first time in weeks should have all their primary play makers on the field. Wide receiver Calvin Johnson (ankle) and running back Reggie Bush (ankle) both were able to practice this week and are listed as probable. On the defensive side of the ball, defensive tackle Nick Fairley (knee) will miss the contest, although the Detroit Free Press reports that he will not need surgery for now.

Calvin Johnson has missed the last three weeks and was ineffective when he has played since injuring his ankle against the Packers in week three. His return should help spark the Lions passing attack.

Reggie Bush has missed two of the last three weeks while dealing with his ankle injury. In his absence, Theo Riddick played well complementing Joique Bell. Bush is a dual threat back and will also be a factor in the passing game.

Nick Fairley is the only Lion listed as out with tight end Eric Ebron (hamstring) listed as doubtful after being limited in practice on Thursday and Friday. Tight end's Brandon Pettigrew (foot) and Joseph Fauria (ankle) are both listed as questionable. Both were limited in practice this week, with Pettigrew missing Wednesday's practice according the the Lions official injury report.

Defensive end Ziggy Ansah (toe) was limited Thursday and Friday but is listed as probable, as are defensive end George Johnson (hamstring) and tackle LaAdrian Waddle (concussion).
