DETROIT – Lions cornerback Darius Slay will start tonight in the pivotal matchup against the Green Bay Packers.

Slay was out last week after injuring a hamstring in Week 15 against the Giants. His return tonight is great news for a Lions team looking to slow down Aaron Rodgers and  wide receiver Jordy Nelson.

The Packers also announced Randall Cobb is out tonight, so that's one less weapon for the green and gold to work with.
