Lions Vs. Vikings: Inactives Announced

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

Detroit Lions

QB Drew Stanton

RB Kevin Smith

OG Leonard Davis

DE Lawrence Jackson

DT Nick Fairley

CB Chris Houston

S Louis Delmas

Minnesota Vikings

RB Adrian Peterson

TE Allen Reisner

OT DeMarcus Love

C Brandon Fusco

DE D'Aundre Reed

LB Xavier Adibi

CB Chris Cook

The Lions will once again be without several contributors. Smith, Jackson, Fairley, Houston and Delmas are all too banged up to play, meaning other players at their positions (Maurice Morris, Willie Young, Sammie Hill, Aaron Berry and Chris Harris) will need to step it up.

The good news for Detroit is that the Vikings are also pretty banged up. Although Christian Ponder is set to play, Peterson is out, which is a big break for the Lions. Toby Gerhart is no slouch, but not having to face AP is a pretty nice break for the Lions to catch.
