The Lions elected to not elevate any players from their practice squad this week, meaning they enter today’s game with 53-players on their roster. But, because the Lions have kept eight offensive linemen on their active game-day roster, they are now eligible to expand their roster from 46- to 48-players — meaning they only need to declare five players inactive.
Here are those five players.
Lions’ inactives list
- CB Desmond Trufant, hamstring – Downgraded to OUT
- TE Hunter Bryant, hamstring — Ruled OUT
- RB Ty Johnson
- OG Logan Stenberg
- S C.J. Moore
Trufant being ruled out means another start for rookie corner Jeff Okudah. It’s unclear if Okudah will matchup up with DeAndre Hopkins, or if Amani Oruwariye will draw him, as suggested in Zack Moran’s Honolulu Blueprint, but either way, the third overall pick will be looking to bounce back after a rough start to 2020.
