INACTIVES: Lions vs. Packers

The Detroit Lions will play their third straight contest to finish out the 2019 season without starting right tackle Rick Wagner.

Wagner's missed the last two games with a knee injury he suffered in Minnesota Week 14. Today's inactive status means Wagner will finish his seventh NFL season playing in 12 contests this year.

Tyrell Crosby is expected to make his third straight start in place of Wagner. He and left tackle Taylor Decker will square off against Packers talented edge rushers Preston Smith and Za'Darius Smith, who've combined for 25.5 sacks on the season.

Wagner was one of five players listed as questionable to play today on Detroit's injury report. Also on that list were: Linebacker Devon Kennard (shoulder), linebacker Steve Longa (quad), kicker Matt Prater (illness), safety Tavon Wilson (hamstring). All four of those players are active and expected to play.

Defensive tackle A'Shawn Robinson was the only player listed as out on Friday's report. He's been battling a shoulder injury and his 2019 season ends having made 40 tackles, 1.5 sacks, three tackles for loss and two fumble recoveries in 13 games. Robinson is set to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Joining Robinson and Wagner on Detroit's inactive list today are: Cornerback Michael Jackson, running back Wes Hills, guard Caleb Benenoch, defensive end Jonathan Wynn and cornerback Dee Virgin.
