Lions safety Quandre Diggs will not play Monday against the Packers.

Green Bay — Of the five Detroit Lions players who entered the evening listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Packers, only one has been scratched from the lineup. The Lions will be without starting safety Quandre Diggs for the contest. 

Diggs has been dealing with a hamstring injury, suffered in the first quarter against Kansas City before the team's bye week. He was listed as limited throughout the practice week, but was seen doing almost nothing during the portion of those sessions open to the media. 

With Diggs out, it likely means larger roles for both veteran Tavon Wilson and rookie Will Harris. 

Returning to action for the Lions are cornerback Darius Slay (hamstring) and wide receiver Danny Amendola (chest). Both missed the game against the Chiefs. 

Detroit's six other inactives against the Packers are defensive tackles Mike Daniels and Da'Shawn Hand, offensive linemen Oday Aboushi and Beau Benzschawel, cornerback Amani Oruwariye and quarterback David Blough. 

Daniels (foot), Hand (elbow) and Oruwariye (knee) had been ruled out prior to Monday. Blough was a healthy scratch, meaning Jeff Driskel, signed four weeks ago, has moved into Detroit's backup quarterback role.
