Mikel Leshoure is in the starting lineup for the Lions on Sunday against the Titans.

The Detroit Lions have announced their list of inactives. Perhaps more importantly, they have also announced that running back Mikel Leshoure will start on Sunday afternoon. He is making his official NFL debut against the Tennessee Titans, and he is in the starting lineup at running back instead of Kevin Smith.

Moving on to the inactives, the only real surprise is defensive end Lawrence Jackson. He was not on the injury report at all this week, although he was last week with a calf injury. Perhaps it flared up again in the last 24 hours, which is why he won't be playing on Sunday.

Here's the full list of inactives for the Lions:

QB Kellen Moore
TE Tony Scheffler
OT Jason Fox
OT Corey Hilliard
DE Lawrence Jackson
LB Travis Lewis
S Louis Delmas

And here are the inactives for the Titans:

QB Rusty Smith
RB Javon Ringer
WR Lavelle Hawkins
OT Michael Otto
OG Deuce Lutui
LB Colin McCarthy
S Al Afalava
