A quick reference guide for player viewing during the game.

Syndication: Detroit Free Press Junfu Han via Imagn Content Services, LLC

The Detroit Lions are on the road in Week 14, traveling to Colorado to take on the Denver Broncos at Empower Field at Mile High Stadium.

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 roster was rocked by an outbreak of COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 illnesses this week. There were a plethora of moves—too many to note here—and by Sunday, the Lions had 47 players on the active roster and 7 player elevations (6 COVID and 1 standard), meaning they’ll have 54 players available to choose their game-day roster from.

Let’s take a closer look at the carnage.
