Lions inactives:  WR Derrick Williams, RB Aaron Brown, CB Brandon McDonald, OT Jason Fox, C Cody  Wallace, DE Willie Young, DE Lawrence Jackson.

Redskins inactives: CB Kevin Barnes, RB Clinton Portis, RB Chad Simpson, LB Perry Riley, OG Derrick Dockery, DL Anthony Bryant, DL Jeremy Jarmon.

Thoughts on inactives:

– Simpson being down means that he must not be 100 percent. He did, however, tell me that he was feeling “much better” on Wednesday. Only two running backs will dress.


Of note:

— Despite ranking 31st in the NFL defensively , the Redskins are one of only two teams that have held their opponents to 14 points or fewer on four occassions (Steelers).

— If the Redskins get a takeaway today, they will surpass last year’s season-total of 17.

— Washington’s +8 turnover margin is 2nd best in football. Only the Titans have forced more turnovers (18) than Washington’s 17. A year ago at this time the Redskins had a -4 turnover ratio, which was tied for 25th in the league.

— Ryan Torain is averaging 88 yards in his three starts. His 12 carries of 10-plus yards are good for No. 1 in the NFL in the past four weeks.
