One thing you can count on with the Detroit Lions is that they are never, ever boring. Follow the latest news including injuries, roster moves and more here daily from Oakland Press beat writer Paula Pasche. Plus you'll find regular commentary about the team.


Woodson, Grant to play

Both cornerback Charles Woodson (toe) and running back Ryan Grant (hamstring) are active today for the Lions-Packers game at Ford Field.

Grant averaged 7.5 yards per carry against the Lions last year and could be especially problematic for a Detroit team that allowed 318 yards rushing last week.

In the only change this week for the Lions, Ikaika Alama-Francis will play this week in place of Corey Smith, who's out with a hamstring injury. Cliff Avril is up as well, and will be used in pass-rushing situations if the Lions can contain the run.

As expected, Daniel Bullocks will start at safety in place of Gerald Alexander and Leigh Bodden at cornerback in place of Travis Fisher.

you're too good a journalist to be covering the trash we call the, that's an insult to trash. there is no word to describe just how inept the lions are. can't pass, can't catch, can't run, can't defend, and can't win. i'm officially done with this 'team'. took me 8 years, but i'm done until ford sells the team/millen gets fired/the team starts winning consistently/a miracle happens.
