‘Huge blow’ Lions suffer injury blow as key duo are now ruled out ahead of clash with Chicago Bears

ALLEN PARK: The Detroit Lions received a taste of their full offensive power in Los Angeles, as their offensive line and backfield both recovered from injuries.

They’re still short-handed a week later.

Left guard Jonah Jackson, as well as defensive lineman Isaiah Buggs (illness), have been declared out of Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears. Jackson has been dealing with a wrist injury suffered in last week’s game against the Chargers, his first game back from an ankle ailment that sidelined him for three weeks.

Overall, Jackson is out for the fourth time in five weeks, a setback for an offensive line that is at its finest when he’s on the field. The top replacements are Kayode Awosika, Dan Skipper, and rookie Colby Sordal.

Safety Ifeatu Melifonwu (hand) is doubtful, but receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones (ribs) is ready to go. The former Michigan wideout was acquired from the Browns in a deal before the deadline last month, and he is now slated to make his Lions debut against Chicago.
