ALLEN PARK (AP) – Lions tight end Tony Scheffler and linebacker Justin Durant are back in the lineup after recovering from concussions. Scheffler missed one game and Durant was out for three straight. Detroit backup defensive end Willie Young was inactive with a calf injury.

Atlanta Falcons rookie wide receiver Julio Jones and left tackle Sam Baker are inactive for Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions.

Jones is out with a strained left hamstring and Baker is out with a lower back injury. Harry Douglas is listed as the starter for Jones and Will Svitek replaces Baker.

Running back Jahvid Best is inactive for the Lions with a concussion. Jerome Harrison on Friday was put on the reserve, non-football illness list after he reportedly was diagnosed with a brain tumor.
