Detroit Lions' D'Andre Swift, Kalif Raymond active vs. Green Bay Packers

·1 min read

Detroit Lions receiver Kalif Raymond will play Monday night against the Green Bay Packers after suffering a thigh injury in practice last week.

Raymond ran routes during pregame warmups with what appeared to be a wrap on his left thigh. He is expected to serve as the Lions' No. 1 receiver with Tyrell Williams out with a brain injury.

The Lions have six active receivers: Raymond, Amon-Ra St. Brown, Trinity Benson, Quintez Cephus, Tom Kennedy and KhaDarel Hodge, the latter two of whom were inactive for last week's loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
