Lions Vs. Bears: Nick Fairley Active For Monday Night Football

Detroit Lions rookie defensive tackle Nick Fairley is going to make his debut on the big stage of ESPN's Monday Night Football. After being out since the start of August with a broken foot, Fairley fully practiced all last week and is set to make his debut on Monday night for the Lions. He is active for the game, and all indications are he will play.

The following players are not active for Monday's game between the Lions and Chicago Bears:

Detroit Lions

QB Drew Stanton

RB Jerome Harrison

WR Rashied Davis

OT Jason Fox

LB Justin Durant

SS Erik Coleman

SS Amari Spievey

Chicago Bears

QB Nathan Enderle

RB Kahlil Bell

WR Earl Bennett

OT Gabe Carimi

DE Corey Wootton

DE Mario Addison

DT Stephen Paea

With Durant and Spievey out, Bobby Carpenter will step in as a starter at linebacker and John Wendling will start at safety. Durant was expected to play over the weekend, but a setback with his recovery from a concussion is going to keep him out of the lineup for at least one more game.
