Detroit's James Ihedigbo out again with injury against Green Bay


DETROIT — Lions safety James Ihedigbo is inactive and will miss his third straight game to start the season when Detroit hosts Green Bay on Sunday.

Packers linebacker Brad Jones is inactive because of a quad problem.

Quarterback Kellen Moore, cornerback Cassius Vaughn, fullback Montell Owens, linebacker Travis Lewis, tackle LaAdrian Waddle and wide receiver Ryan Broyles are also inactive for Detroit.

Green Bay's other inactives are: quarterback Scott Tolzien, cornerback Demetri Goodson, linebacker Carl Bradford, defensive tackle Mike Pennel and wide receiver Jeff Janis.

Detroit signed Ihedigbo in the offseason, but he's been dealing with a neck issue — and the rest of the secondary is also ravaged by injuries. Vaughn is inactive with an ankle problem, and defensive backs Bill Bentley and Nevin Lawson have gone down with season-ending injuries.
