After missing three starters upfront along their offensive line last week in Cincinnati, the Detroit Lions get right guard T.J. Lang and right tackle Rick Wagner back for today’s season finale at Ford Field vs. Green Bay.
Lang (foot) and Wagner (ankle) were both limited participants in practice Wednesday and Thursday, but were upgraded to full participants for Friday’s practice. Both are active.
Graham Glasgow will likely start a third straight game at center for the injured Travis Swanson (concussion), who went on IR this week. Second-year guard Joe Dahl will start again at left guard.
The Lions had just two players enter the game with a questionable status. Defensive end Anthony Zettel was added to the injury report Friday with a groin injury. Cornerback DJ Hayden was a Saturday addition due to an illness. Both players are active.
With starting cornerback Nevin Lawson already ruled out, expect rookie Teez Tabor to get a good amount of snaps today. He’s been trending that way the last three weeks, playing 39, 44 and 44 snaps, respectively, the last three weeks.
Joining Lawson on Detroit’s inactive list today are: Wide receiver Jace Billingsley, tight end Michael Roberts, tackle Brian Milhalik, running backs Zach Zenner and Dwayne Washington and defensive tackle Rodney Coe.
Receiver Bradley Marquez and tight end Hakeem Valles will make their Lions debuts today.
