Lions worth an add this week
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

With the Bills and newly minted starting quarterback Kyle Orton on the schedule, Jamey Eisenberg has the Lions as his top waiver-wire add among DST units for Week 5.

Opposing DST units have enjoyed solid success against the Bills in recent weeks, with the Chargers and Texans both scoring in double figures. A big part of that was the subpar play of quarterback EJ Manuel, who threw a pick-six to the Texans a week ago. Whether Orton, who has started just one game since 2011, will be an improvement is still to be seen, however the Lions' pass rush has been dominant at times this season, and could make life hard on Orton. 

The Lions should be worth starting in Week 5, given how well they are playing right now.

Lions down to two healthy running backs
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Lions might need to promote running back George Winn from the practice squad or sign a free agent because they currently have two healthy running backs, Reggie Bush and fullback Jed Collins, reports the Detroit Free Press. Joique Bell is recovering from a concussion, while Theo Riddick and Montell Owens are dealing with pulled hamstrings.

All three were knocked out of Sunday's win over the Jets. Lions coach Jim Caldwell has not provided any updates on the injured trio. Detroit hosts Buffalo in Week 5.
