Bears vs. Lions injury report: Brandon Pettigrew doubtful for season finale

Dave Reginek

The Lions tight end has missed the last two games after suffering an ankle injury in Week 14.

The Detroit Lions are likely to be without tight end Brandon Pettigrew in the final game of the season against the Chicago Bears, although he returned to the practice field Friday on a limited basis. In the latest injury report, released Friday, Pettigrew is listed as doubtful for Week 17.

Also on the injury report is defensive tackle Sammie Hill, listed as out, officially ending his season. Safety Louis Delmas and cornerback Chris Houston are both questionable for Sunday.

The Bears will be without safety Chris Conte and linebacker Blake Costanzo in Week 17, as both are listed as out. Linebacker Brian Urlacher is also expected to be out for a fourth consecutive game, as he is listed as doubtful.

Pettigrew has missed the last two games after leaving a Week 14 game against the Packers early. He has 57 receptions for 556 yards with three touchdowns. The Bears need a win against the Lions to keep their postseason hopes alive.
