As reported earlier on Sunday morning, the Detroit Lions will officially have the services of tight end T.J. Hockenson available for their Week 10 game against the Washington Football Team. He is officially ACTIVE despite a toe injury that held him out from Thursday’s practice. That’s big for Detroit, as star receiver Kenny Golladay has already been declared out, and the Lions will need all hands on deck against a good Washington defense.

The news isn’t quite as good for Detroit’s offensive and defensive line.

Defensive tackle Nick Williams is officially OUT after dealing with a shoulder injury all week. The Lions did call up defensive tackle Frank Herron—who has played three career games—on Saturday to help Detroit’s shorthanded defensive line.

Likewise, offensive lineman Halapoulivaati Vaitai will miss Week 10 with a lingering foot injury. Detroit brought up Dan Skipper from the practice squad, so the team will have reinforcements. However, expect Tyrell Crosby to start at right tackle and Joe Dahl to start at right guard.

Here’s a look at both team’s inactives for Week 10.

Lions inactives:

WR Kenny Golladay
DT Nick Williams
QB David Blough
RB/WR Jamal Agnew
LB Jarrad Davis
OL Logan Stenberg
OT Halapoulivaati Vaitai

Football Team inactives:

OT Geron Christian Sr.
LB Jared Norris
WR Dontrelle Inman
QB Kyle Allen
WR Robert Foster
LB Thomas Davis
