Detroit -- For the first time since Week 5, the Lions will have their starting offense available Sunday against the Miami Dolphins at Ford Field.

Tight end Brandon Pettigrew will start despite battling a foot injury that held him out in Week 8. As expected, wide receiver Calvin Johnson will play for the first time since Week 5, and running back Reggie Bush is active after missing two of the last three games.

Although Pettigrew will play, fellow tight ends Joseph Fauria and Eric Ebron are inactive, leaving Kellen Davis as the only reserve option.

For the Dolphins, running back Lamar Miller is active after battling a shoulder injury this week, but Dallas Thomas will start at left guard for Daryn Colledge, who is out with a back injury.

Fauria was limited in practice all week with an ankle injury that's held him out since Week 4, but the team decided to give him another week to become healthier. Ebron has missed the last two games with a hamstring injury, but was doubtful before the game.

In addition to the two tight ends, defensive tackle Nick Fairley is out, so C.J. Mosley will start in his place. Mosley missed the Week 8 game with a suspension related to an incident in a London hotel and will make his first start since Week 2 last season.

The other Lions' inactives are wide receiver Ryan Broyles, offensive tackle Garrett Reynolds, defensive end Larry Webster and quarterback Kellen Moore. With Johnson returning and the Lions keeping five running backs inactive, there wasn't room for Broyles on the active roster.

Former Lions offensive tackle Jason Fox and former Michigan State tight end Dion Sims are both inactive for the Dolphins. Their other inactive players are defensive tackle Anthony Johnson, guard Billy Turner, defensive end Terrence Fede and linebacker Kelvin Sheppard.
