Willie Young out for Lions; Falcons' Julio Jones inactive
DETROIT — Only surprise for the Lions is that DE Willie Young is out. Young has had a sack in two of last three games. He was limited at practice on Friday with a calf injury.
Perhaps the big news today is that Falcons’ RB Julio Jones is out with a hamstring injury. He was doubtful for the game. Harry Douglas will get the start at running back.
Lions running back Jahvid Best (concussion) was listed as out on Friday’s injury report.
WR Rashied Davis (foot) and safety Vincent Fuller (elbow) were listed as doubtful and are inactive.
Also out are Drew Stanton, Joe Jon Finley, Jason Fox and Rashied Davis.
Along with Jones, other Falcons who are inactive are Chris Owens, Darrin Walls, Brett Romberg, Sam Baker, Carlton Powell and Cliff Matthews.
