The Detroit Lions hit the road once more this week trying to shake off the stench of three straight home losses. Unfortunately, the game is to be played at Lambeau Field, a place the Lions haven't won since 1991, so the Packers already have that going for them. As we get you ready for the weekend, here's the latest news and information from around the web.
- Let's get right down to injury business. This weekend in Green Bay, the Lions could be without Louis Delmas, Corey Williams, and Kyle Vanden Bosch. Each were limited in practice this week. Nick Fairley returned to practice after suffering a quadriceps injury, and is expected to play. Other than that, the Lions are fairly healthy. —Detroit Free Press
- There's new infighting within the Lions, as an anonymous player ripped Ndamukong Suh after last weekend's loss to Indianapolis. The event hasn't seemed to become a bigger issue, as other players and coaches downplayed the significance of the outspokenness. Still, to say team chemistry hasn't been great this season would be an understatement. —Detroit Free Press
