Cowboys Vs. Lions: Justin Durant, Miles Austin Among Inactives

The inactives for Sunday's game between the Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys have been announced:

Detroit Lions

QB Drew Stanton

WR Rashied Davis

OT Jason Fox

OG Jacques McClendon

DT Nick Fairley

LB Justin Durant

CB Aaron Berry

Dallas Cowboys

FB Tony Fiammetta

WR Miles Austin

OG David Arkin

OG Derrick Dockery

DE Sean Lissemore

CB Orlando Scandrick

K David Buehler

For the Lions, the two names that stick out are Durant and Berry. The other five players were all inactive last week, but Durant and Berry are new to the inactives list. Durant is recovering from a concussion and wasn't cleared to play, so rookie Doug Hogue is active for the first time in his career. Active for the first time this season is Alphonso Smith, who will step in for the injured Berry. He is recovering from a groin issue.

For the Cowboys, the headliner of the inactives list is Austin. He is one of the Cowboys' most talented players, so it's big that he will not play on Sunday. Of course, it's also big that Dez Bryant will play on Sunday. He was considered a game-time decision, and the decision has been made for him to play.
