    Detroit Lions cornerback Rashean Mathis has been ruled out of the rest of Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears because of a concussion. Detroit Lions cornerback Rashean Mathis walked off the field under his own power in the first quarter, but spent a bunch of time talking with trainers with his helmet off on the sideline. Mathis showed up at the team's practice facility Monday and worked out. Mathis, one of the Lions' starters at corner, was replaced by rookie Darius Slay the player Mathis replaced in the starting lineup last week. Schwartz was less optimistic on the status of Detroit's other starting cornerback, Chris Houston, who injured his leg Sunday. Robert Mathis countdown to 100 sacks didnt simply continue Sunday at EverBank Field. Rookie Darius Slay is filling in for Mathis, and so far the Lions haven’t missed a beat on defense: On Slay’s first play, Bears quarterback Jay Cutler threw in his direction, but Lions safety Louis Delmas wisely recognized that Cutler would pick on the rookie, broke on the ball and intercepted it. Lions safety Glover Quin added another interception of Cutler, returning it deep into Chicago territory, and Matthew Stafford hit Calvin Johnson in the end zone on the next play to give the Lions a 23-10 lead.
