the Detroit Lions’ starting offensive line will not have all the gang back together again for the season finale against the Green Bay Packers. The team announced their seven inactives for Week 17 and right tackle Rick Wagner will miss his third straight game with a knee injury.

That means Tyrell Crosby will make his third consecutive start, and it comes at a difficult time for the second-year player. The Green Bay Packers have one of the best pass-rushing duos in Za’Darius Smith and Preston Smith, both of whom have already reached at least 12 sacks.

In more positive news, linebacker Devon Kennard—who was also listed as questionable—will play this week. Kennard is the last remaining starting linebacker that has remained healthy. Earlier in December, the Lions sent Jarrad Davis, Christian Jones and Jahlani Tavai to injured reserve.

Those who will not be playing include A’Shawn Robinson, who was ruled out on Friday, and a bunch of healthy scratches including cornerback Dee Virgin and running back Wes hills among others.

Here’s a full inactive list for both the Lions and Packers:

Lions inactives

CB Michael Jackson
CB Dee Virgin
RB Wes Hills
De Jonathan Wynn
OT Rick Wagner
G Caleb Benenoch
DT A’Shawn Robinson

Packers inactives
