ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- He spent about 15 to 20 minutes working out on the sideline, going through ladders and other drills testing out his injured ribs. At the end of it, it was determined running back Joique Bell would be active Sunday against Cincinnati.

How much Bell plays could be dependent on how much pain he is in with contact. Watch for Mikel Leshoure to potentially see some carries in his place behind starter Reggie Bush.

Detroit's inactives are as expected: receiver Nate Burleson; quarterback Kellen Moore; running back Theo Riddick; cornerback Jonte Green; offensive linemen Leroy Harris and Jason Fox and tight end Tony Scheffler.

One other interesting note is receiver/returner Jeremy Ross, who was signed off the practice squad Saturday, is active. It'll be interesting to see how much work the former Green Bay Packer gets today.
