DETROIT -- Greetings from a hushed Ford Field. We have a few of lineup changes to bring you as players start warming up:
- Artis Hicks will return as Minnesota's right tackle this week. Backup Ryan Cook is active but won't start. Anthony Herrera, whose status was uncertain following the death of his brother, will start at right guard.
- Detroit receiver John Standeford will replace Shaun McDonald in the starting lineup. McDonald is inactive Sunday.
- Ikaika Alama-Francis will start in place of rookie Andre Fluellen at left end.
- Kalvin Pearson will start in place of Dwight Smith at free safety.
