DETROIT — Defensive ends Ziggy Ansay (knee) and George Johnson (groin) are active for the Lions vs. Packers today. Both had been listed as questionable on Friday’s injury report.
It’s been mostly bad news for the Lions secondary regarding injuries the first two weeks, but safety Don Carey returns today to play in his first game this season. He’ll back up Isa Abdul-Quddus (who will start for James Ihedibgo) and Glover Quin. Carey can also play nickel.
Ihedigbo, who missed the first two games with a neck injury, is also inactive. He was listed as doubtful on Friday along with fullback Montell Owens (hamstring) who is also out.
Cornerback Cassius Vaughn (ankle), right tackle LaAdrian Waddle (calf) and linebacker Travis Lewis (groin) were ruled out on Friday.
Garrett Reynolds will start for the second straight game at right tackle.
Other inactives are quarterback Kellen Moore and Ryan Broyles.
On Saturday the Lions signed cornerback Mohammed Seisay from the practice squad so they could have four corners today. To make room on the roster they released wide receiver Kevin Ogletree who had been inactive the first two games.
Note: Kicker Rob Bironas, who tried out for the Lions last week, was killed in a car crash Saturday night near his Nashville home.
Packers inactives: QB Scott Tolzien, CB Demetri Goodson, LB Carl Bradford, LB Brad Jones, DT Mike Pennel and WR Jeff Janis. (Only six because LB Andy Mulumba placed on injured reserve.)
