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 Drew Stanton

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.
