The Lions will again be short in the secondary Monday against the Bears, with cornerback Jacob Lacey out and Bill Bentley doubtful on the injury report released Saturday.
Lacey suffered a concussion and needs more time, and Bentley’s still dealing with a shoulder injury.
That means they’ll start Alphonso Smith or Jonte Green opposite Chris Houston. Smith was re-signed this week, so they could have three healthy corners for the game.
At least safety Louis Delmas (knee) is probable after missing some practice time this week, giving them another difference-maker back there.
