Lions Vs. Falcons: Jahvid Best, Willie Young Among Inactives

The Detroit Lions and Atlanta Falcons have announced their inactives for Sunday's game. For the Lions, guys like Jahvid Best and Rashied Davis, who were doubtful to play, are inactive. Julio Jones is inactive for the Falcons, but that is no surprise, either.

Here's the full list:

Detroit Lions

QB Drew Stanton

RB Jahvid Best

WR Rashied Davis

TE Joe Jon Finley

OT Jason Fox

DE Willie Young

S Vincent Fuller

Atlanta Falcons

WR Julio Jones

OT Sam Baker

C Brett Romberg

DE Cliff Matthews

DT Carlton Powell

CB Chris Owens

CB Darrin Walls

The one surprise for the Lions is Young. He wasn't on the injury report until Friday, when he was limited in practice because of a calf injury. Nobody was really expecting him to miss Sunday's game, but he is out because of the injury. Although this isn't an enormous loss considering how deep the Lions are on the D-line, Young has played well this season and has become a regular in the rotation, so other players will have to step it up in his absence.
