Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy warms up on the field before the game.

Detroit -- DeAndre Levy is back. The Detroit Lions linebacker, who had missed the past 11 games, is in the lineup against the Chicago Bears.

Levy played all 70 snaps in the opener against Indianapolis, but showed up on the practice report the following week with a quad injury. While recovering from that issue, he had a minor procedure to clean up a knee injury suffered before training camp. He returned to practice three weeks ago, but has been limited.

Levy is likely to have a limited role against the Bears.

Additionally, wide receiver Marvin Jones and tight end Eric Ebron are active. Both had been limited in practice this week and were listed as questionable.

That's the good news. The bad news is running back Theo Riddick is out with a wrist injury. The Lions will lean on a combination of Zach Zenner, rookie Dwayne Washington and the recently re-signed Joique Bell.

Lions vs. Bears preview: Keep No. 2 seed in sight

Detroit's other inactives are center Travis Swanson, wide receiver TJ Jones, quarterback Jake Rudock, defensive tackle Khyri Thornton, linebacker Thurston Armbrister and offensive tackle Cornelius Lucas.

Thornton, who has started six of the past seven games for the Lions, is a healthy scratch.

Swanson had been ruled out earlier this week with a concussion. Rookie Graham Glasgow will start in his place, with Laken Tomlinson moving back into the starting lineup at left guard.
