Lions Vs. Panthers: Inactives Announced

New, comments

Here is the list of inactives for today's game between the Detroit Lions and Carolina Panthers:

Detroit Lions

QB Drew Stanton

RB Jahvid Best

OG Leonard Davis

DE Lawrence Jackson

DE Willie Young

CB Aaron Berry

P Ryan Donahue

Carolina Panthers

QB Jimmy Clausen

TE Jeremy Shockey

OT Lee Ziemba

DE Frank Kearse

LB Jason Phillips

LB Dan Connor

CB Brandon Hogan

With both Jackson and Young out for the Lions, Gunther Cunningham will have to be a bit creative with the defensive end rotation. It is expected that Ndamukong Suh, Andre Fluellen and perhaps even Nick Fairley will see some time at defensive end as the Lions try to make up for their two backups being out today.

At cornerback, Berry is out after waking up sick. This means Brandon McDonald will likely see playing time in nickel packages, and perhaps Alphonso Smith will finally get some playing time at cornerback.
