Detroit Lions Injury Report And Inactive List, Week 14: Kevin Smith, Nick Fairley Out Against Vikings

The Detroit Lions caught a break in the scheduled game with the Minnesota Vikings when the Vikings' offensive leader, Adrian Peterson was listed as inactive for the game. But the Lions have their own running back issues to deal with and now Kevin Smith has been listed for Sunday's game as the team tries to give Smith's aggravating ankle injury a chance to heal with a week off.

With Jahvid Best already out for the season, veteran Maurice Morris will take the bulk of the load at running back for the Lions.

Also, rookie defensive tackle Nick Fairley's on-and-off season is back in the off position. After playing in the last four games, Fairley is back on the inactive list with a left foot injury.

Here is the full inactive list for the Lions.

RB Kevin Smith, DT Nick Fairley, DE Lawrence Jackson, CB Chris Houston, S Louis Delmas, QB Drew Stanton, OG Leonard Davis inactive for Lions.
