Nick Fairley Won't Make His Detroit Lions Debut versus Dallas Cowboys

We’ll have to wait at least another week for the debut of Nick Fairley. He was ruled out on Friday along with Rashied Davis, Jason Fox and Justin Durant.

Durant suffered a concussion late in the game last week and missed practice all week as a result. He tweeted earlier today that he is feeling better and should be good to go next week. Bobby Carpenter will start in his place.

The status of Aaron Berry, John Wendling, Lawrence Jackson, Maurice Stovall, Amari Spievey and Eric Wright is more uncertain. All are listed as questionable.

Louis Delmas, Calvin Johnson, Brandon Pettigrew and DeAndre Levy are more likely to play and therefore have been designated as probable.

The NFL defines game status due to injury as follows:
Out = Player will not play
Doubtful = 25% chance a player will play
Questionable = 50% chance a player will play
Probable = 75% chance a player will play
