Lions Vs. Saints: Inactives Announced

Here is the list of inactives for today's game between the Detroit Lions and New Orleans Saints:

Detroit Lions

QB Drew Stanton

RB Aaron Brown

OG Leonard Davis

DE Lawrence Jackson

CB Chris Houston

CB Brandon McDonald

S Louis Delmas

New Orleans Saints

RB Chris Ivory

WR Adrian Arrington

TE Mike Higgins

OT Will Robinson

DE Turk McBride

LB Martez Wilson

CB Johnny Patrick

The key thing with the Lions inactives is that running back Kevin Smith isn't on the list. He is set to start at running back for the Lions despite injuring his ankle on Thanksgiving against the Packers. Detroit will be without a couple starters in the secondary (Houston and Delmas), but at least Smith is set to play.

For the Saints, the thing that stands out to me is that McBride is inactive. He has been banged up, and the injury will keep him from playing against his former team.
