ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) The Detroit Lions have ruled out defensive end Ezekiel Ansah against the Chicago Bears because of a back injury.
Detroit determined Ansah and running back Dwayne Washington would be inactive at Chicago after they didn't practice for a third straight day. Ansah also missed the previous game, a win over Cleveland. Washington is out with a hip injury.
Offensive guard T.J. Lang is expected to play after missing the Browns game with a concussion.
Don Carey, a standout on special teams, and linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin are listed as questionable to play against the Bears because of ankle ailments.
Detroit (5-4) has not lost an NFC North game going into its matchup against the last-place Bears (3-6) on Sunday.
