Description: Detroit defensive tackle Nick Fairley (shoulder) is doubtful to play Sunday against the Cardinals. SOURCE: Detroit Free Press
Insight: Fairley suffered a shoulder injury with two minutes to play Sunday night against the Packers. The former first-round pick has emerged as a reliable force next to Ndamukong Suh this season after Corey Williams had knee surgery, picking up 35 tackles and 5.5 sacks with two forced fumbles. Even without Fairley, Detroit's D/ST is still a reliable plug-in option against the inept Cardinals.
