It appears that ahead of the Thanksgiving Day showdown with the division rival Chicago Bears, the Detroit Lions don't have a whole lot to be thankful for in terms of their offense.

Unfortunately, rookie running back Kerryon Johnson will miss his first game of the season, and wide receiver Marvin Jones Jr. will miss his second consecutive game.

Johnson sustained a knee injury in last Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers, and Jones missed that game while recovering from his own knee injury. The Lions offense has already struggled this season and will have its work cut out on Thursday against a top-ranked Bears defense.

Kerryon Johnson has been a bright spot for the mediocre Lions this season. Johnson broke the Lions unfortunate streak of not having a running back exceed 100 yards in a game for several seasons, and he is on pace to crack 1,000 rushing yards pending his health. Johnson has proven to be a productive pass catcher as well. The former Auburn stud has racked up 213 yards on 32 receptions alongside his 641 rushing yards.

Marvin Jones is having some difficulties this season duplicating his success from last season with the emergence of Kenny Golladay and newly revamped rushing attack. Jones has 508 yards on 35 receptions along with five touchdowns. The targets will presumably be there for him once he's healthy with the departure of Golden Tate.

Matthew Stafford and the Lions offense will have their work cut out for them on Thursday, and since Mitchell Trubisky will likely miss the game as well, it could be more back and forth than imagined.

As it stands, Detroit is a 3-point underdog at home against Chicago, according to To place a bet on the game or any others, click here and use promo code CLUTCH50 for a 50% Welcome Bonus when you signup with!
