The Bears are going to kick off the week for the Lions game at the top of the hour. Jay Cutler will hold his weekly press conference and I'll share some highlights in progress on Twitter.
We'll see if tight end Desmond Clark (rib) and linebackers Pisa Tinoisamoa (right knee) and Hunter Hillenmeyer (rib) are active when practice gets going at 1:30.
Lions coach Jim Schwartz held his media conference without media--before any media was allowed in Halas Hall this morning. So he chatted with some Bears employees. Schwartz was asked about running back Kevin Smith, who was knocked out of the victory over Washington with a shoulder injury.
"We will just see how that plays out this week,'' Schwartz said. "And see what we can get out of him and make a game-time decision on whether he can go or not. We have a dynamic playmaker in Calvin Johnson who can get open downfield, but that is largely dependent on how we run the football and Kevin is a big part of that.''
