Detroit Lions Game Day: Louis Delmas Starting, Kevin Smith Inactive

Kevin Smith has seen his role dwindle since the return of Mikel Leshoure. It has officially dwindled down to nothing with the news that he will not be active for today’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Smith’s ability to get on the field is hurt by the fact that he does not contribute on special teams. With Joique Bell and Keiland Williams able to play on coverage units, they bring more value as game day options.

The full list of Detroit Lions inactives looks like this:
Corey Williams
Kellen Moore
Jason Fox
Corey Hilliard
Tahir Whitehead
Ricardo Silva
Kevin Smith

A couple lineup changes have also been announced.
