Both the Los Angeles Chargers and the Detroit Lions will be without their starting left tackles as the two go head-to-head Sunday afternoon.

For the Lions, Taylor Decker suffered a back injury this week and was limited in practice in the lead up to Sunday. He is officially INACTIVE for Week 2, meaning it will likely be up to 2018 fifth-round pick Tyrell Crosby to fill in. Crosby has two career starts in the NFL, but will be making his first start at left tackle.

Unfortunately for the Lions, they will also be without linebacker Jarrad Davis. Earlier in the week, it looked like Davis may return after suffering an ankle injury in Week 3 of the preseason. But his didn’t participate much at all in Friday’s practice and it appears he’s still at least a week away from returning to action.

As expected, Da’Shawn Hand is also INACTIVE as he continues to heal from an elbow injury suffered during training camp.

Here’s a look at each team’s inactives:
