Detroit Lions DT Nick Fairley (knee) inactive vs. Dallas Cowboys
Fairly, who injured ligaments in his knee on Oct. 26 against the Atlanta Falcons in London, practiced for the first time on Thursday. He only participated in individual drills, and according to the Lions' team website, "that simply wasn’t enough work to get him ready to play in a playoff environment."
Fairley, who will be a free agent after this year, has 14 tackles, one sack and one forced fumble in eight games this season.
