DETROIT (AP) -- The Detroit Lions have running back Joique Bell active against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Bell was listed as questionable for Sunday's game because of a rib injury.

Starting wide receiver Calvin Johnson, safety Louis Delmas, cornerback Rashean Mathis and linebacker Ashlee Palmer are active as expected after being listed as probable. Detroit previously ruled out tight end Tony Scheffler for a second straight game because of a concussion

Cincinnati has cornerback Terence Newman and center Kyle Cook in its starting lineup. Newman was probable because of an abdomen ailment and defensive tackle Devon Still was probable with a back injury but is active.
