The Lion’s injury concerns heading into their home game Sunday against the Packers include defensive end Cliff Avril, who hasn't been cleared to play after suffering a head injury in last weekend’s loss atMinnesota.
Defensive tackle Corey Williams remains day-to-day because of a right knee injury and safety Louis Delmas is still questionable because of a sore left knee. And Detroit NFC rival Chicago is dealing with quarterback issues. The concussion for Jay Cutler could be substantial considering the club signed Josh McCown on Tuesday.
Cutler missed the second half of Sunday night's 13-to-6 setback to Houston and his status for next Monday's game in San Francisco is uncertain. McCown, a 33-year journeyman, is familiar with the Chicago offense, having started the Bears' final two games last season after Cutler was sidelined with a broken thumb.
