Lions’ RB Zenner active with Dwayne Washington out; Ansah inactive again

Offensive line starters all active for first time

For the first time all season the starters on the Lions offensive line are active today at the Chicago Bears. Look for left tackle Taylor Decker to play every snap after getting eased in last Sunday with 36 snaps. Right guard T.J. Lang will return after missing one game with a concussion.

Ziggy Ansah will miss his second straight game. He was declared out on Friday. The defensive end, who has a back injury, hasn’t practiced for two weeks. Cornelius Washington could get the start like he did last week in the win over the Browns.

Running back Zach Zenner is active for the fifth game this season with Dwayne Washington out with a hip injury.

Don Carey (knee) will return after missing two games.

Other Lions inactives: OL Emmett Cleary, OL Don Barclay, linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin (ankle), running back Tion Green and wide receiver Jace Billingsley.
