Lions-Bengals inactives: T.J. Lang, Rick Wagner, Travis Swanson OUT vs. Cincinnati

Lions-Bengals inactives: T.J. Lang, Rick Wagner, Travis Swanson OUT vs. Cincinnati

Travis Swanson (concussion) had already been declared OUT on this week’s injury report. T.J. Lang (foot) and Rick Wagner (ankle) will also be INACTIVE against the Bengals. That leaves the Lions with only two starters on the O-line. Corey Robinson will likely fill in for Wagner at RT, and Graham Glasgow will shift over to center once again. Don Barclay and Joe Dahl will most likely fill in the remaining...
