Allen Park — The Lions are a relatively healthy team heading into Sunday's game against the New England Patriots, but one offensive starter remains a question mark.

Running back Reggie Bush, who missed last week's game with an ankle injury, is questionable once against after being limited in practice all week. If he can't play, Joique Bell and Theo Riddick will continue to shoulder the load.

Defensive tackle Nick Fairley and right guard Larry Warford were the only players absent from practice Friday, and they have already been ruled out.

Defensive end Jason Jones was back at practice Friday after missing the last two days with a family emergency, and he's probable.

Wide receiver Golden Tate was limited Friday with a hip injury, but he's probable, too. Wide receiver Calvin Johnson, tight end Brandon Pettigrew, right tackle LaAdrian Waddle and Bell are all probable.

Patriots running back Jonas Gray was late to practice and sent home Friday, according to several reports, but he's probable Sunday.

New England offensive lineman Cameron Fleming and defensive end Chandler Jones are out. Offensive lineman Marcus Cannon, defensive tackle Dominique Easley and safety Nabe Ebner are questionable.

Quarterback Tom Brady and wide receiver Julian Edelman are probable.
