Uncertain for Thursday

Jefferson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against Chicago.

The Lions listed Jefferson as a limited practice participant Monday through Wednesday, after he sat out Sunday's 13-10 loss to the Browns. With both D'Andre Swift and Jamaal Williams healthy, Jefferson will only be the No. 3 back even if he plays, with no guarantee of snaps or touches on offense.
