Lions inactive players vs. Rams: Sam LaPorta is active

All eyes were on No. 87 in blue as the Detroit Lions warmed up in Ford Field for Sunday night’s wild card matchup with the Los Angeles Rams. The status of All-Pro rookie tight end Sam LaPorta and his wounded knee was the biggest pre-game question mark on the Lions’ health front.

After going through warmups in the stadium, LaPorta showed enough to make sure he was active for the game.

The Lions inactive players:

OLB Charles Harris

CB Steven Gilmore

WR Kalif Raymond (injured)

S Tracy Walker

OLB Julian Okwara

DT Brodric Martin

QB Hendon Hooker (emergency QB)
