Stafford starts while Fairley, Best, Davis are inactive
DENVER — As expected Matthew Stafford (ankle) is the starter today against the Broncos. He was listed as questionable on Friday’s injury report.
DT Nick Fairley (foot) and WR Rashied Davis (foot) are both inactive and were both doubtful.
The Lions won’t be too short-handed on the defensive line because DT Sammie Hill (ankle) is active. He was questionable, along with Stafford.
Running back Jahvid Best (concussion) was declared out on Friday. It’s the second game he missed after suffering the concussion against the Falcons. Maurice Morris will start for the second straight week.
Also inactive is newcomer safety Chris Harris who was claimed off waivers on Friday, along with CB Don Carey, Jason Fox and Drew Stanton.
