Nine players are inactive for the Detroit Lions in their preseason finale against the Buffalo Bills. They are as follows: running back Maurice Morris (hand), wide receiver Nate Burleson (elbow), offensive tackle Jason Fox (foot), offensive tackle Johnny Culbreath (illness), defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch (shoulder), defensive tackle Nick Fairley (foot), cornerback Anthony Madison (undisclosed), cornerback Alphonso Smith (foot) and cornerback Nathan Vasher (undisclosed), who was a late addition to the list.
With Burleson out, the Lions are giving Titus Young the start at wide receiver. He played for the first time all preseason last week against the New England Patriots, and it will be good to see him in a starting role tonight. Although the starters aren't expected to play for long, it's good that he will get a chance to potentially catch some passes from Matthew Stafford.
Once again filling in for Vanden Bosch at defensive end is Lawrence Jackson. Jackson started in place of Vanden Bosch last week as well for the Patriots game.
