Allen Park — The Lions will likely be missing at least two starters in their season finale against the Bears Sunday (1 p.m., FOX).

The team already ruled out center Travis Swanson (shoulder), and defensive end Jason Jones (neck) is doubtful. Neither player participated in practice this week.

Wide receiver Calvin Johnson (ankle) also sat out Friday, but he'll likely play through the ailment as he has for the entire second half of the season. Johnson, along with five other starters, is questionable.

Running back Ameer Abdullah (shoulder), safety Isa Abdul-Quddus (shoulder), cornerback Nevin Lawson (shoulder), defensive tackle Haloti Ngata (foot) and right tackle Michael Ola (knee) are questionable, too.

Linebacker Josh Bynes (thumb) is probable.

Like the Lions, the Bears have a long list of injured players as the season draws to a close. Center Hroniss Grasu (knee) and wide receiver Eddie Royal (illness) are doubtful.

Running back Matt Forte (back), tight end Zach Miller (toe) safety Adrian Amos (shoulder), cornerbacks Bryce Callahan (quad) and Tracy Porter (ankle), defensive linemen Jarvis Jenkins (ankle/illness) and Mitch Unrein (knee) and linebackers Willie Young (rib), Pernell McPhee (knee) and Shea McClellin (concussion) are all questionable.
