DETROIT — Defensive back Quandre Diggs, who broke his hand in the loss at Dallas last week, is active today against the Green Bay Packers at Ford Field. Diggs practiced all week with a cast on his left hand.
Lions running back Ameer Abdullah is active against today. He could see his first action this season after he was healthy but inactive the first four games.
Defensive end Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder), guard T.J. Lang (concussion) and tight ten Michael Roberts (knee) were ruled out on Friday’s injury report.
It’s the fourth straight game that Ansah has missed since he was injured in the opener.
Wide receiver Brandon Powell, safety Tavon Wilson (back), linebacker Eli Harold (not injury related) and offensive lineman Andrew Donnel are also inactive.
Defensive lineman Da’Shawn Hand (ankle), wide receiver Marvin Jones Jr. (ankle), cornerback Nevin Lawson (illness) and defensive back Tracy Walker (ankle) were listed as questionable on Friday but are active today.
For the Packers, Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison, two of their top wide receivers, are inactive. That leaves Davante Adams and three rookie wide receivers as targets for Aaron Rodgers.
Other Packers inactives include QB Tim Boyle (healthy scratch), CB Jaire Alexander (groin), CB Bashaud Breeland (hamstring), S Jermaine Whitehead (back) and T/G Alex Light (healthy).
