Lions At Bills: Inactives Announced For Detroit

The Detroit Lions have announced their list of inactives for Thursday night's preseason finale against the Buffalo Bills. Four players on offense are inactive and five on defense are out. Here is the list: running back Maurice Morris (hand), wide receiver Nate Burleson (elbow), offensive tackle Jason Fox (foot), offensive tackle Johnny Culbreath (illness), defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch (shoulder), defensive tackle Nick Fairley (foot), cornerback Anthony Madison (undisclosed), cornerback Alphonso Smith (foot) and cornerback Nathan Vasher (undisclosed).

Vasher is a late addition to the inactives list. It's not clear why he will miss Thursday's game. It's also not clear why Madison is out, as neither player was ruled out earlier in the week.

With Burleson out, Titus Young will get a chance to start at wide receiver. He made his preseason debut last week against the New England Patriots, and now he is going to get a chance to work with the first-team offense.

Once again starting in place of Vanden Bosch at defensive end is Lawrence Jackson.
