Detroit Lions DT Nick Fairley (knee) is hoping to play in the Wild Card game against the Dallas Cowboys Sunday, Jan. 4, after practicing Thursday, Jan. 1. Earlier in the week, head coach Jim Caldwell said it'd be "a miracle" if Fairley played Sunday. "I feel real comfortable," Fairley said. "End of the day felt good. I didn't feel like I had a minor setback or none of that. The knee felt pretty good." Fairley is now down to 290 pounds. Defensive coordinator Teryl Austin doesn't think Fairley is at game-level fitness yet, but he still thinks his fitness level is good enough to play. Austin said Fairley would play in a limited role if he's active, since he hasn't played since Week 8.
