The Buccaneers head into this game - and the chance to get to .500 - without their top offensive weapon. As everyone is now well aware, wide receiver Mike Evans will miss the remaining three games with a hamstring injury.
For the Lions, they are still without quarterback Matthew Stafford but have not placed him on IR as he hopes to return to the field before the end of the season.
The Bucs will also be without nose tackle Beau Allen who is dealing with an ankle injury and outside linebacker Anthony Nelson will miss again with a lingering hamstring issue.
