Lions turn to Orlovsky
We're not aware of any injury to Kitna, who threw for 74 yards in a disjointed first half. Orlovsky has been warming up since the end of halftime, and Kitna is on the sideline with nothing obvious -- other than his team's performance -- bothering him.
The Bears have extended their lead to 24-0 on Matt Forte's second touchdown of the game.
There was plenty of bye week discussion about the possibility of elevating No. 3 quarterback Drew Stanton, but in reality Stanton is not close to being ready to play. Orlovsky has never been considered a likely possibility as the Lions' long-term starter, but with all else lost Sunday, he's getting his chance.
