The Detroit Lions have released their list of game day inactives and the names on the list are not surprising. Jahvid Best, Don Carey, Rashied Davis, Nick Fairley, Jason Fox, Chris Harris and Drew Stanton will not dress today.
Best had been previously ruled out while Rashied Davis and Nick Fairley were listed as doubtful on the injury report. Jason Fox still isn’t ready to play as he recovers from a foot injury and Chris Harris and Don Carey are new to the team.
Seeing Drew Stanton‘s name on this list could be taken as very good news. With Matthew Stafford‘s ankle in doubt, the Lions could have activated Stanton as an insurance policy. Stafford has been announced as the starting quarterback and the team is obviously happy with the way he looked in warm ups to the point that they feel comfortable keeping Stanton on the inactive list.
