The Bears were missing starting linebacker Hunter Hillenmeyer (right thumb) and receiver Brandon Lloyd (sprained knee), along with nickel back Danieal Manning (hamstring).
Lions strong safety Dwight Smith (foot) missed his second straight game with a foot injury. Fullback Jerome Felton (ankle), linebacker Alex Lewis and tight end Michael Gaines were also inactive.
Hillenmeyer had surgery after the Bears' 48-41 win over Minnesota two weeks ago, and Lloyd missed his fourth straight game.
er was set to make his first appearance since Sept. 28 after missing the past three games, and he was listed as the starting right cornerback. Tillman sat out against Minnesota after leaving the Atlanta game on Oct. 12 with a left shoulder injury.
