NEW ORLEANS -- The Detroit Lions have scratched safety Chris Harris for Saturday night's playoff game against New Orleans, while the Saints have deactivated defensive end Turk McBride.

Harris had been listed as doubtful on the final injury report because of a back injury. Detroit also scratched former Saints running back Joique Bell, who the Lions recently signed off New Orleans' practice squad.

McBride was not on the injury report after playing against Carolina last week, but has been inactive much of the season because of left ankle soreness. Also out of uniform for New Orleans were receiver Lance Moore (left hamstring), linebacker Jonathan Casillas (right knee) and tight end John Gilmore (toe), who were ruled out on Friday.
