DETROIT >> Second-round pick Teez Tabor is among the inactives for the Lions who face the Arizona Cardinals today in the season opener.
Tabor, a cornerback, has not been on the injury report, it’s a matter of numbers, a coach’s decision.
Meanwhile cornerback Jamal Agnew, a fifth-round pick, will play. One difference is that Agnew is expected to return punts.
Running backs Zach Zenner and Tion Green are inactive too. Leaving Ameer Abdullah, Theo Riddick and Dwayne Washington as the three active backs.
Other inactives for Detroit are wide receiver Jared Abbrederis, guard Zac Kerin, tackle Corey Robinson and tackle Storm Norton (who was elevated from the practice squad on Saturday when linebacker Nick Bellore was released).
Cardinals inactives: Linebacker Deone Bucannon, DT Robert Nkemdiche, QB Blaine Gabbert, WR Chad Williams, OL Ulrick John, LB Scooby Wright and OL Will Holden.
