Where The Detroit Lions 53-Man Roster Stands

It looks like the Detroit Lions roster for the opening week of the 2011 season is set. After trimming down their roster to 53 players on Saturday and doing some fine-tuning on Sunday, the Lions appear to have finalized their squad for Week 1. It's always possible a trade or another move could happen, but as of early Monday morning, the Lions roster looks like this:

QB Matthew Stafford
QB Shaun Hill
QB Drew Stanton

RB Jahvid Best
RB Maurice Morris
RB Jerome Harrison
RB Keiland Williams
RB Stefan Logan

WR Calvin Johnson
WR Nate Burleson
WR Titus Young
WR Rashied Davis
WR Maurice Stovall

TE Brandon Pettigrew
TE Tony Scheffler
TE Will Heller

OT Jeff Backus
OT Gosder Cherilus
OT Jason Fox
OT Corey Hilliard

OG Rob Sims
OG Stephen Peterman
OG Jacques McClendon

C Dominic Raiola
C Dylan Gandy

DE Kyle Vanden Bosch
DE Cliff Avril
DE Lawrence Jackson

P Ryan Donahue

LS Don Muhlbach

Note: Although the Lions continue to list Stefan Logan as a wide receiver, I am listing him as a running back. He is more of a specialist than anything and obviously doesn't play just one position, but he is certainly more of a running back than a wide receiver.
