Bryant Johnson inactive, no other surprises

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Wide receiver Bryant Johnson, who has struggled all season, is inactive for today’s game against the Cowboys. He had nine receptions in the first nine games.

No other surprises on the inactive list. Matthew Stafford, Cliff Avril and Jason Hanson were listed as out on Friday’s injury report.

Turk McBride will start for Avril.

Also inactive today are rookies Jason Fox and Willie Young.

Zac Robinson will serve as the third quarterback.

RB Kevin Smith was placed on injured reserve on Saturday and is done for the season. (Follow me on Twitter @PaulaPasche.)
