Linebacker Trey Flowers will be benched again this week after failing to recover from an injury quickly enough. He’ll be out for the second straight game against the Bears, and his absence will be felt by the team’s defense. Otherwise, some players’ statuses for Sunday are still up in the air.

Lions Injury Report for Week 4 vs. Trey Flowers, linebacker, Bears

  • There will be no practice on Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday. OUT (knee/shoulder). Michael Brockers, Defensive End,
  • Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday have limited practice. QUESTIONABLE (shoulder)
  • Linebacker Romeo Okwara Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday have limited practice. (Shoulder) QUESTIONABLE D’Andre Swift, running back,
  • Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday have limited practice. (groin) QUESTIONABLE. Flowers, Brockers, Okwara, and Swift have all been in the Lions’ lineup recently, so these are obviously some of the usual suspects. Since training camp and the preseason, the Lions have been trying to keep Brockers and Swift healthy, and it appears that neither is in too bad of shape with this injury to play. Okwara is hurt, but he played through it in Week 3, and barring a setback, he should be able to do the same for the Lions in Week 4. Flowers will be a significant loss for Detroit’s defense because he won’t be able to play again. Lions vs.


    Bears Primer

    Due to the age of both teams and their proximity to one another, the Lions and Bears represent one of the league’s more classic rivalries. Both teams have struggled to start the season, despite the fact that the Bears have a win to give them a 1-2 record, while the Lions are winless at 0-3. So far, the Bears’ defense has been solid, ranking 12th in the league in total defense and allowing 350 yards per game. With 11 sacks, Chicago also gets after the quarterback well. However, the team’s offensive play leaves a lot to be desired. With only 191 yards of total offense, the Bears are dead last in the league. Per game, you’ll gain 7 yards. The team’s passing offense ranks 32nd in the NFL, averaging 90 yards per attempt. With only one touchdown, he averages 7 yards per game. The ground game isn’t much better, with Chicago ranking 20th in the league with 101 yards per game and only two touchdowns.

    On the other hand, Detroit has been well-balanced, ranking 17th in terms of offense and 22nd in terms of total defense. This is shaping up to be an exciting game, with either team having a chance to win. Both have been plagued by injuries, so whoever is able to overcome these obstacles will have a leg up on the competition.

    The Lions will almost certainly be without Flowers in this game. Dan Campbell: Lions Will Be Ready for Bears Quarterbacks
