Harrison, Davis active for Lions; Ansah out again
Detroit -- The Lions were coy about whether Damon "Snacks" Harrison would play against the Seattle Seahawks, but the recently-acquired defensive tackle is active for Sunday's game.
Harrison, who came to the Lions in a trade with the New York Giants on Thursday, now faces the possibility of becoming the eighth player since the introduction of the 16-game schedule to play 17 games in the regular season.
Assuming he plays a snap, it will also mark the 89th consecutive game for Harrison, the second-longest active streak among defensive tackles.
Also active for the Lions is middle linebacker Jarrad Davis. He missed Wednesday's practice with a calf injury and was limited the remainder of the week. The team listed him as questionable on Friday's injury report.
Defensive end Ziggy Ansah was also questionable, but is inactive for the sixth straight game with the shoulder injury he suffered in the season-opener on Sept. 10.
Also inactive for the Lions: Running back Theo Riddick (knee), wide receiver TJ Jones, defensive end Kerry Hyder, cornerback Lenzy Pipkins, guard Joe Dahl and offensive tackle Andrew Donnal.
With Jones inactive, it means undrafted rookie receiver Brandon Powell will be active for the first time this season.
