As expected, the Lions will have Matthew Stafford starting at quarterback on Sunday.
They’re going to be missing some other important pieces as they try to beat the Chiefs to move to 3-0-1 on the season, however. Cornerback Darius Slay and wide receiver Danny Amendola are both inactive after being listed as questionable on Friday.
Slay is dealing with a hamstring injury and his absence is a big negative for a defense that will also be without defensive linemen Mike Daniels and Da'shawn Hand as they try to slow down the Patrick Mahomes-led offensive attack.
Amendola returned to practice on Friday, but the Lions promoted a wideout from the practice squad later in the day and reports on Sunday morning indicated that his chest injury made him unlikely to play.
