The Detroit Lions are on the road in Week 4 as they travel to Soldier Field for a divisional matchup with the Chicago Bears.

This comprehensive depth chart is designed to give fans an expanded look at the current roster, and you will often see things that vary from traditional depth charts. Occasionally you will see a player listed at multiple positions. This happens when a player holds key roles at multiple spots and doesn’t fit into just one box. Additionally, we added player numbers for easier tracking during the game, bolded the anticipated starters, and all rookies will have an * after their name.

Note: The Lions made a handful of roster moves this week—including releasing Jamie Collins, claiming DL Eric Banks off waivers, and elevating Ryan Santoso—and they enter this game with 52 players on the active roster, plus one elevation, equaling 53 players available to establish their game day roster.
