Those unlikely to play vs. Lions

When projecting which banged-up players might suit up in Saturday night's game against the Lions, it could be broken down into two categories -- "highly unlikely" and "reasonable chance."

Those who are highly unlikely have not practiced all week. Those in the reasonable chance category returned to practice this week, giving them a chance to take the field.
