WR Bryant Johnson (foot) and DE Turk McBride (ankle) were listed as questionable, but are active.
Inactives for Detroit are; RB Aaron Brown, CB Brandon McDonald, T Jason Fox, DE Willie Young and DE Lawrence Jackson.
Also, there were no surprises on the Redskins’ active list. RB Clinton Portis (groin) was listed as out on Friday.
