The Detroit Lions are back home at Ford Field in Week 8 for a matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles on Halloween.

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 asterisk (*) after their name.

The Lions opened the week by placing Logan Stenberg on injured reserve and signing practice squad guard UDFA rookie Tommy Kraemer to replace him. They also released CB Daryl Worthy and DL Eric Banks bringing the active roster to 51-players. On Saturday, the activated DL Da’Shawn Hand from injured reserve, elevated TE Brock Wright and S Jalen Elliott from the practice squad, thus bringing the roster up to 54-players.
