Detroit Lions’ D’Andre Swift, Kalif Raymond active vs. Green Bay Packers

Detroit Free Press

Detroit Lions receiver Kalif Raymond will play Monday night against the Green Bay Packers after suffering a thigh injury in practice last week.

Raymond ran routes during pregame warmups with what appeared to be a wrap on his left thigh. He is expected to serve as the Lions’ No. 1 receiver with Tyrell Williams out with a brain injury.

The Lions have six active receivers: Raymond, Amon-Ra St. Brown, Trinity Benson, Quintez Cephus, Tom Kennedy and KhaDarel Hodge, the latter two of whom were inactive for last week’s loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

Along with Williams, defensive linemen Kevin Strong (concussion) and Austin Bryant, running back Jermar Jefferson and cornerback Corey Ballentine are inactive for the Lions.
