The Detroit Lions will be close to full strength this Sunday, as starting left tackle Taylor Decker is officially ACTIVE against the Indianapolis Colts. Decker suffered a shoulder injury during this week of practices, which held him out on Friday, but it appears he is ready enough to give it a go.

Additionally, the Lions will be getting back starting nickel cornerback Justin Coleman back. Coleman was activated from injured reserve on Saturday after missing the past five games with a hamstring injury. He, too, is officially active. That being said, Desmond Trufant still appears to be a week away, as he is inactive yet again for Week 8.

The Colts are coming in healthy, too. They are getting linebacker Darius Leonard back, and starting center Ryan Kelly going to play despite a late knee injury. Additionally, tight end Mo Alie-Cox is ACTIVE despite being listed as questionable with a knee injury.

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