Lions depth chart: Now with more accuracy!

The Detroit Lions' updated depth chart finally appears to be accurate.

Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

For the first two weeks of the regular season, the Detroit Lions' depth chart featured an oddity: Dylan Gandy was listed ahead of Larry Warford at right guard, even though Warford was actually the starter. Also, Mikel Leshoure was listed ahead of Joique Bell at running back despite Leshoure not even being active.

For Week 3, the Lions have finally decided to stop trolling by putting Warford ahead of Gandy and Bell ahead of Leshoure. (Rashean Mathis has also been moved ahead of Jonte Green.) In turn, they've finally released a depth chart that is actually accurate. Take a look:
