Saturday’s inactive list is a welcome site to the Lions.
For the first time since Thanksgiving, the Lions will have all of their 22 starters in the game. That includes safety Louis Delmas, who hasn’t played since Thanksgiving Day against the Green Bay Packers.
As for the inactives, the only mild surprise is rookie linebacker Doug Hogue, who has played the last 13 games filling in on special teams for the injured Isaiah Ekejiuba.
Hogue was the victim of a healthy roster.
The other inactives for the Lions are quarterback Drew Stanton, corner Brandon McDonald, running back Joique Bell, safety Chris Harris, guard Leonard Davis and defensive end Andre Fluellen.
Harris, who has started the last five games for the Lions in place of the Delmas, missed all week of practice with a back injury.
Bell, who the Lions signed off the Saints practice team two weeks ago, will not get to face his old team.
Inactive for Saints are: WR Lance Moore, CB Leigh Torrence, LB Jonathan Casillas, G Eric Olsen, TE Tory Humphry, TE John Gilmore and DE Turk McBride.
