Lions comprehensive depth chart: Week 6 vs. Bengals

Pride of Detroit

The Detroit Lions are back at home this Sunday for a Week 6 matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals.

This comprehensive depth chart is designed to give fans an expanded look at the current roster, and you will often see things that vary from traditional depth charts. Occasionally you will see a player listed at multiple positions. This happens when a player holds key roles at multiple spots and doesn’t fit into just one box. Additionally, we added player numbers for easier tracking during the game, bolded the anticipated starters, and all rookies will have an asterisk (*) after their name.

Note: The Lions once again were forced to place more players on injured reserve this week, adding Quintez Cephus and Corey Balentine to the list. To counter these moves, they signed rookie CB Mark Gilbert, elevated WR Geronimo Allison and NB Nickell Robey-Coleman from the practice squad, bringing the active roster to 54 players entering Sunday’s game.
