Lions Vs. Broncos: Jahvid Best, Nick Fairley Among Inactives

The list of inactives for Sunday's game between the Detroit Lions and Denver Broncos doesn't include any real surprises. Running back Jahvid Best and defensive tackle Nick Fairley are the most notable players on the list for Detroit, but Best was already ruled out and Fairley was doubtful for Sunday's game.

Here's a look at the full list:

Detroit Lions

QB Drew Stanton

RB Jahvid Best

WR Rashied Davis

OT Jason Fox

DT Nick Fairley

CB Don Carey

S Chris Harris

Denver Broncos

QB Brady Quinn

RB Willis McGahee

FB Quinn Johnson

OT Tony Hills

OG Manny Ramirez

DE Derrick Harvey

S Rafael Bush

The most interesting thing about the inactives list for the Lions is that Stanton is on it. Considering Matthew Stafford is banged up, the thinking was Stanton might get to dress for the first time this season as extra insurance. As it turns out, Stanton once again is inactive, suggesting the Lions feel confident in Stafford's ability to play the entire game.
