Lions DE Lawrence Jackson inactive against Packers

Share This Story



The Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions have relatively healthy rosters.

Detroit defensive end Lawrence Jackson was the only noteworthy player on the inactive list for either team Thursday.

Jackson, who has 4 1/2 sacks this season, was out for a second straight game with a thigh injury.

Green Bay running back James Starks was active. He was listed as questionable with knee and ankle injuries after he was hurt late in last week's win against Tampa Bay.

The Lions put Kevin Smith in the starting lineup. He replaced Jahvid Best, who was previously ruled out for a fifth straight game because of a concussion.

Smith was out of the league three weeks ago, hoping to get another shot to play when his former employer gave him another chance.
