The Detroit Lions listed five starters as questionable for Monday night's tilt with the New Orleans Saints.

Calvin Johnson (ankle) and Eric Ebron (illness) are questionable after sitting out practice Saturday. The team's official website expects both to play Monday.

Megatron missing practice is nothing new. The nine-year pro is 19 yards shy of his sixth straight 1,000-yard season. He had just one catch for 16 yards last week. Assuming he's healthy, we expect Jim Bob Cooter to get Johnson involved early Sunday, especially if he is matched up against penalty-king Brandon Browner.

The Lions also listed defensive tackle Haloti Ngata (neck), offensive tackle Michael Ola (knee) and safety Glover Quin (ankle) as questionable.

Receiver Lance Moore, a former Saint, is listed as probable.

The Saints have listed offensive linemen Terron Armstead (knee) and Jahri Evans (ankle), safety Jairus Byrd (knee) and wideout Marques Colston all as probable to play.
