It is out of necessity, not design, that the Detroit Lions will have just four cornerbacks for their game tonight against the league’s best passing attack. Eric Wright and Aaron Berry will get the start with Alphonso Smith serving as the nickel back and Don Carey as the dime back. Chris Houston and Brandon McDonald will be inactive due to injury.
The Lions will also have a new starter at safety with Chris Harris filling in for the injured Louis Delmas. Drew Stanton, Lawrence Jackson, Leonard Davis and Aaron Brown round out the list of game day inactives.
