Jared Goff, QB (DET)

Status in question for Thursday

Goff (oblique) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Bears.

Goff has been tending to an oblique injury that kept him out of Week 11 action at Cleveland. The Lions have yet to tip their hand about their Week 12 starting quarterback, but coach Dan Campbell told Eric Woodyard of ESPN.com on Tuesday that he was "leaning" toward Goff being under center Thursday. The decision ultimately may come to a pregame workout, after which Detroit will release its list of inactives about 90 minutes before the 12:30 p.m. kickoff. Aside from Goff, Tim Boyle and even David Blough could be in the mix for the nod after Boyle underwhelmed in his spot start this past Sunday.
