It’s Week 15, and the Detroit Lions (1-11-1) are hosting the Arizona Cardinals (10-3) as we head into the final month of the 2021 season. The Lions were eliminated from playoff contention last week, while the Cardinals can secure their spot with a win at Ford Field in Detroit.

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.

It was another eventful week for the Lions roster. Players were added and removed from both the injured reserve and the reserve/COVID-19 list. By Sunday, the Lions had 50 players on the active roster and three player elevations, meaning they’ll have 53 players available to choose their game-day roster from.
