Allen Park — Although most of them will likely play Monday, five Lions starters are listed as questionable for the primetime game against the New Orleans Saints (8:30 p.m., ESPN).

Tight end Eric Ebron (illness) is among the players who are questionable after he was limited Friday and missed practice Saturday.

If Ebron can't play, the Lions would rely heavily on tight ends Tim Wright and Bear Pascoe, whom they signed Tuesday. Brandon Pettigrew (knee) went on injured reserve Tuesday.

Wide receiver Calvin Johnson (ankle), safety Glover Quin (ankle), defensive tackle Haloti Ngata (neck) and right tackle Michael Ola (knee) are also questionable.

Although Johnson will likely play Monday, he missed practice Thursday and Saturday and was limited Friday. He's had minimal participation in practice since suffering his injury in Week 8, but he hasn't missed any games.

Ngata, Quin and Ola were limited all three days of practice this week. Ngata's is the only new injury as Quin and Ola have played through theirs in recent games.

Wide receiver Lance Moore (ankle) is probable after missing the past two games and will make his return against his former team in New Orleans.
