Bears RT Jonathan Scott (probable, hamstring) is expected to play in Sunday's game against the Lions.
After missing Week 16, Scott returned to a full practice Friday and will return this week. His ascension to the starting lineup this season is more an indictment on 2011 first-round pick Gabe Carimi than it is a deserved promotion. Scott has predictably struggled in passing blocking, and grades out negatively against the run by Pro Football Focus. The Bears will be looking to upgrade their offensive line in the offseason.
