Detroit Lions wide receiver Marvin Jones, out last week and today with a bone bruise in his knee, has a chance to return and play against the Los Angeles Rams on Dec. 2, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

In nine games this season, Jones has 35 receptions for 508 yards and has scored five touchdowns.

The Lions (4-6) play host to the first-place Bears (7-3) today.

Lions running back Kerryon Johnson will not play today against the Bears and he continues to recover from a knee injury. Cornerback Teez Tabor is a healthy scratch.

Other injuries we're monitoring around the league on Thursday:

1. Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) is inactive and will not play against the Lions. The Bears expect him back next weekend against the New York Giants, Rapoport adds.
