New, comments

The Lions will be ailing on the offensive line vs. Packers.

NFL: Minnesota Vikings at Detroit Lions Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Lions will be without Theo Riddick for the rest of the season, and they will be without some key players among the offensive line against the Green Bay Packers.

The Lions will continue to be without their starting center, Travis Swanson, who is still recovering from a concussion. Rookie Graham Glasgow will make his third consecutive start at center, while Laken Tomlinson is expected to start at left guard.

The Lions also had an injury scare on Saturday, when starting right tackle Riley Reiff was added to the injury report with a hip injury. It appears it was bad enough to hold him out of Sunday’s game. Corey Robinson is expected to take his place at right tacke.

The only good news for the Lions is that Darius Slay, who missed last week with a hamstring injury in in. Slay—who is celebrating a birthday on Sunday—was limited in practice all week, but he is active and will play against the Packers.

Additionally, the Lions made Jace Billingsley inactive, despite promoting him from the practice squad on Saturday.

For the Packers, Randall Cobb is out for a second consecutive week. Here are the full inactives for Lions-Packers.
