Detroit Lions comprehensive depth chart: Week 13 vs. Minnesota Vikings

Pride of Detroit

The Detroit Lions are at home once again, this time hosting division rival Minnesota Vikings in a Week 13 matchup.

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.

The Lions made a handful of roster moves this week, including activating Ifeatu Melifonwu from IR, releasing Da’Shawn Hand from IR with an injury settlement, placing Trey Flowers on IR, signing Rashod Berry, as well as elevating Bruce Hector and Tavante Beckett for the game. By Sunday, the Lions had 53 players on the active roster and two elevated players, meaning they’ll have 55 players available to choose their game-day roster from.
