Detroit Lions: Returner Micheal Spulock inactive; LaAdrian Waddle to start at right tackle

DETROIT — Returner Micheal Spurlock is inactive for the Lions today. He was not on the injury report this week. Expect to see Jeremy Ross on return duty, possibly Ryan Broyles and Theo Riddick too.

Jason Fox is active, but rookie LaAdrian Waddle will start at right tackle. Riley Reiff (hamstring) will start at left tackle. It’s Waddle’s first start. He filled in at left and right tackle during last Sunday’s game with injuries to Corey Hilliard and Reiff.

Fantasy folks nearly blew up Twitter when it was discovered that Reggie Bush (knee) didn’t practice on Friday. It was a rest day and he was listed as probable on Friday’s injury report and he is active.

 Corey Hilliard (knee) and Nate Burleson (broken forearm) were listed as out on the injury report. Hilliard injured his knee last Sunday in the loss to the Bengals and did not practice all week. Burleson broke his forearm Sept. 24. His return is expected in the first few weeks after the bye.

 Other Lions’ inactives were: QB Kellen Moore, G Leroy Harris, CB Jonte Green and RB Mikel Leshoure.

Key Cowboys' inactives include RB DeMarco Murray, DE DeMarcus Ware and WR Miles Austin.
