KEYS TO THE GAME
Lions: DT Sammie Hill did not practice Wednesday and Thursday because of an ankle injury. Considering the Lions felt the need to sign veteran DT Chuck Darby, it seems unlikely Hill will play. ... S Kalvin Pearson did not practice Wednesday or Thursday because of a quad injury, though he did some running on the side Thursday. He seems unlikely to play. ... DE Dewayne White did not practice Wednesday or Thursday because of a hamstring injury. He seems unlikely to play. ... DE Cliff Avril was listed as limited in practice Wednesday and Thursday. He seems likely to return after missing two weeks with a hamstring injury. ... CB Eric King was listed as limited in practice Wednesday and Thursday. He seems likely to return after missing a game with a shoulder injury. ... LB Ernie Sims was listed as limited in practice Wednesday and Thursday. He seems likely to return after missing a game with a shoulder injury. He said he begged the coaches to let him play Sunday against Washington but they held him out, snapping his streak of 50 straight starts. ... DT Grady Jackson was listed as limited Wednesday and did not practice Thursday. But that has been the routine for the 36-year-old veteran, who had knee surgery in the offseason.
