Description: Detroit defensive tackle Nick Fairley will be sidelined for 4-to-5 weeks after spraining his MCL and PCL, according to ESPN Chicago's Michael C. Wright.
Insight: This should actually be considered good news, as many thought he'd be out for the season. Fairley should be back for the Lions' stretch run.

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.
