Ravens' Reed, Clayton inactive vs. Lions; Suggs back in lineup

Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed and wide receiver Mark Clayton are inactive for Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions, but Pro Bowl linebacker Terrell Suggs returned to the lineup after missing three games with a knee injury.

Suggs hurt the knee during a Week 10 game against the Cleveland Browns.

Reed missed his second consecutive game because of a hip injury, and Clayton sat out with a knee problem. Offensive tackle Jared Gaither also was inactive after missing practice for much of the week with a foot injury.

The Lions listed rookie Matthew Stafford as their third quarterback. Daunte Culpepper started in place of Stafford, who has a shoulder injury.

Baltimore's other inactives were offensive lineman David Hale, tight end L.J. Smith and nose tackles Brandon McKinney and Kelly Talavou. John Beck was listed as the Ravens' third quarterback.

Detroit also deactivated defensive back Jahi Word-Daniels, fullback Jerome Felton, center Melvin Fowler, tackle Corey Hilliard, tight end Casey FitzSimmons, defensive tackle Andre Fluellen and defensive end Dewayne White.
