EDGE Analysis

Carey missed the team's past two games due to his knee injury. Now that he's active again he'll look to resume his special team's role, though it remains highly unlikely he has any role on the defense.

Carey (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Carey has yet to log a defensive snap this season, and he's in danger of missing his third consecutive game. If he's unable to play, he'll leave his special teams duties to the rest of the depth secondary members.

Carey (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

Carey was a limited participant in practice this week after sitting out Monday night's win over the Packers. Carey has exclusively been a special teams contributor this season and would likely require multiple injuries to the Lions secondary to see significant defensive snaps.

Carey (knee) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Packers, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Carey finished the week as a limited practice participant after sitting out Thursday's session. The 30-year-old has exclusively played special teams thus far this season with four tackles, keeping him off the IDP radar at this point.

Carey was held out of practice Thursday due to a knee injury, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Carey likely sustained the injury during Sunday's loss to the Steelers, as the Lions had been off the last three days before kicking off Week 9 preparations Thursday. The reserve safety has seen all 156 of his snaps on special teams this season, effectively removing him from consideration in IDP formats.

Carey (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Carey practiced in full all week and his inclusion on the injury report was more of a precaution after he sat out last week's tilt against the Vikings. He'll be expected to see his usual role as a depth defender and special teams player.
