As injury reports have gone this season for the Detroit Lions, in particular before their Week 9 bye, Week 11's is pretty clean. Left guard Jonah Jackson (wrist/ankle) has been ruled out, as he'll miss his fourth game out of the last five. Defensive tackle Isaiah Buggs has also been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears, due to an illness.

The only other Lion with an injury designation for Sunday is backup safety Ifeatu Melifonwu, listed as questionable with a hand injury. Wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones is in line to make his Lions' debut. Center Frank Ragnow is good to go after adding a back issue to his ongoing management of a toe injury. Defensive tackle Levi Onwuzurike appears to be good to go after a hip injury cost him last week's game.

An injury headline from the past week for the Lions is guard Halapoulivaati Vaitai being placed on IR due to a recurrence of the back issue that cost him all of last season. His season is likely over, and his NFL career may be done too.

Here are the inactive players for the Lions, and the Bears, in Week 11.
