No surprises among Lions' inactives vs. Packers

Tahir Whitehead wouldn't complain about a controversial interference penalty against the Bears on Sunday.

Green Bay, Wis. – After ruling out Ezekiel Ansah and DeAndre Levy earlier in the week, there are no surprise inactives for the Detroit Lions’ Week 3 game against the Green Bay Packers.

Also out for Detroit are linebacker Antoine Williams, cornerback Adairius Barnes, offensive tackle Cornelius Lucas, guard Joe Dahl and tight end Orson Charles.

Three Lions players will be active for the first time this season. Rookie defensive end Anthony Zettel will make his professional debut, while Zaviar Gooden, promoted off the practice squad on Saturday, will provide much-needed depth at linebacker. Running back Zach Zenner is also dressed for the first time, helping round out the running back rotation following Ameer Abdullah's foot surgery that landed the starter on injured reserve.

For the Packers, the team will be without four defensive starters and a key reserve. The team had already ruled out linebacker Clay Matthews, cornerback Sam Shields and safety Morgan Burnett. Joining that trio on the sidelines is defensive tackle Letroy Guion and defensive end Datone Jones.

Jones and Guion were both listed as doubtful on Friday's injury report.
