Practice Report: Three not participating

ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- The Detroit Lions signed Austen Lane earlier this week as insurance in case rookie Ziggy Ansah won't be able to play Sunday against Chicago.

From the looks of it, he might not.

Ansah missed his third straight day of practice Sunday with an ankle injury, joining right tackle Corey Hilliard (knee) and cornerback Bill Bentley (knee) as guys who have missed every practice this week.

Linebacker Travis Lewis (ankle) returned to practice, as did safety Louis Delmas (knee). Receiver Nate Burleson was out there for the third straight day catching passes.
