Detroit Free Press - [Full Article]

Detroit head coach Jim Schwartz continues to be tight-lipped about his plans for defensive tackle Nick Fairley, but all signs point to the Lions’ first-round pick making his debut Monday night against the Bears.

Fairley practiced today for the fourth straight day – under the watchful eye of Lions general manager Martin Mayhew during individual drills – and defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham said he’s lobbying hard to get the rookie into game action for the first time since he fractured his left foot Aug. 1.

He listed as questionable on the Lions' injury report.

Fantasy Impact: 

If Fairley can get going, Detroit will rise higher among fantasy defenses.
