The Detroit Lions (12-5) will take on the Los Angeles Rams (10-7) in the Wild Card round of the 2023-24 playoffs. There hasn’t been a ton of roster movement since last week, but there have been a few injuries that could force the Lions to explore some depth options at a few positions.

To help out your viewing experience, we have created the most comprehensive and up-to-date look at the Lions' current depth chart with easy viewing access and links to important articles. We have listed each player’s number next to their name, bolded the projected starters, italicized injured players, and added an asterisk* after the rookies’ names.

Additionally, with the announcement of this year's Pro Bowl teams and All-Pro teams, we have added a (PB) after the name of each Pro Bowler, as well as (PB-A#) after this year's Pro Bowl alternates, with the number following PB-A to indicate which level of alternate they are. All-Pros will be recognized by AP1 (first-team All-Pro) or AP2 (second-team All-Pro).
