Redskins inactives: QB Colt Brennan (3rd), WR Malcolm Kelly, CB Shawn Springs, RB Ladell Betts, SS Chris Horton, T Chris Samuels, T Chad Rinehart, DT Cornelius Griffin.
Analysis: RB Clinton Portis is active and will start, as expected. RBs Rock Cartwright and Shaun Alexander will continue to back him up with Betts out. The absence of Springs is good news for Lions WR Calvin Johnson.
Lions inactives: QB Drew Henson (3rd), SS Dwight Smith, LB Jordon Dizon, G Manny Ramirez, G Edwin Mulitalo, DE Corey Smith, DT Andre Fluellen, DE Landon Cohen.
Analysis: The Lions defense is a little banged up, which is good news for the Redskins’ best fantasy players.
