In a surprising turn of events, the Lions have announced that running back Theo Riddick will not play today against the Chicago Bears. Linebacker DeAndre Levy will be active for today’s game.
DeAndre Levy is action, Theo Riddick is not.

Also missing today’s game will be wide receiver TJ Jones, linebacker Thurston Armbrister, and center Travis Swanson.

Perhaps the biggest surprise on the list is the inclusion of Riddick, who will miss today’s game due to a wrist injury. Swanson, who is battling a concussion, is not so much of a surprise.
For Levy, today will mark his first game action since week one. Also returning to the field for the Lions will be rookie running back Dwayne Washington, who missed last week’s game with an ankle injury.
