DETROIT -- The Atlanta Falcons listed receiver Roddy White among their active players against the Detroit Lions.

White was questionable for Saturday night's game because of an injured right knee. He has 1,150-plus yards receiving for a sixth straight season.

Atlanta safety William Moore missed a third straight game with a hamstring injury. Chris Hope replaced Moore in the starting lineup.

Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford was without one of his favorite options. Tight end Brandon Pettigrew missed a second straight game with sprained left ankle. Pettigrew was replaced in the starting lineup by Will Heller.

Lions safety Louis Delmas was healthy enough to start in a second straight game and to play for just the seventh time in a season shortened by an injured left knee.
