Lions-Saints inactives: Jimmy Graham in, Calvin Johnson out

The Detroit Lions will be without Calvin Johnson on Sunday, but the New Orleans Saints will have Jimmy Graham.

Kevin C. Cox

Just a few days ago, it looked like both wide receiver Calvin Johnson and tight end Jimmy Graham were going to miss Sunday's matchup between the Detroit Lions and New Orleans Saints. Johnson is still recovering from an ankle injury, and Graham's shoulder injury was supposed to keep him out for at least one or two weeks.

As it turns out, only one of those players is actually out on Sunday. Unfortunately for the Lions, it's Johnson. He is inactive and will miss his second consecutive game as a result. Graham, on the other hand, is active for the Saints. Chances are his snaps will be limited, but now the Lions have to worry about one of the game's best tight ends.

Here's the Lions' full list of inactives for Sunday:

QB Kellen Moore
RB Theo Riddick
WR Calvin Johnson
TE Joseph Fauria
TE Eric Ebron
OT Garrett Reynolds
DE Larry Webster

And here are the Saints' inactives for Sunday:

FB Erik Lorig
WR Joe Morgan
WR Nick Toon
DE Brandon Deaderick
LB Kyle Knox
LB Ramon Humber
CB Patrick Robinson
