Lions vs. Falcons inactives: Brandon Pettigrew out again

Tight end Brandon Pettigrew is once again among the inactives for the Detroit Lions.


As expected, the Detroit Lions will be without tight end Brandon Pettigrew again this week. He is inactive for Saturday's game against the Atlanta Falcons, and Will Heller will once again start for the Lions as a result. Also in the starting lineup for the Lions is safety Louis Delmas, who is active for his second consecutive game.

Here's a full look at the list of inactives for the Lions:

QB Kellen Moore
TE Brandon Pettigrew
OT Jason Fox
OT Corey Hilliard
DE Ronnell Lewis
DT Ogemdi Nwagbuo
CB Ron Bartell

It's worth noting that Bartell is inactive since he just joined the Lions earlier this week. You would think the Lions would try to get him into next week's season finale, but it'll depend on how quickly he gets up to speed on the Lions' defense.

Here's a look at the Falcons' inactives:

QB Dominique Davis
WR Tim Toone
TE Chase Coffman
OG Harland Gunn
OG Phillipkeith Manley
DE Cliff Matthews
S William Moore
