LANSING, Mi If the Detroit Lions want to be victorious in the annual 'Turkey Bowl' game in the motor city, they will have to do it without two key offensive pieces.
Veteran wide receiver Marvin Jones Jr. will miss his second straight game. Running back Kerryon Johnson was injured Sunday against the Carolina Panthers and while he avoided a torn ACL, he is still dealing with a knee injury of some kind and is considered week-to-week.
The Lions are coming off a win over the Panthers on Sunday and will face the Bears for the second time in less than two weeks. Detroit fell to Chicago 34-22 last Sunday in the windy city.
Bears Quarterback Mitch Trubisky is listed as doubtful for Thursday's game as well. Chase Daniel is the backup and could get the start if Trubisky can't play.
