OT Lang active for Packers despite ankle injury

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) Green Bay Packers offensive lineman T.J. Lang is active for Sunday night's game against the Detroit Lions.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy had indicated they were preparing to start undrafted rookie Don Barclay at right tackle because of Lang's ankle injury. Lang was injured last week against Minnesota, and was limited Friday after sitting out practice the previous two days.

Green Bay got back one of its defensive backs in cornerback Sam Shields, but Charles Woodson is missing another week with a broken collarbone. Also on Green Bay's inactive list are: RB James Starks: LBs Clay Matthews and Terrell Manning; WR Jordy Nelson; and DEs Mike Neal and C.J. Wilson.

The Lions will be without Corey Williams, who has two of the 12 sacks by Detroit's defensive tackles. S Louis Delmas; Ts Jason Fox and Corey Hilliard; WR Lance Long; DE Ronnell Lewis; and QB Kellen Moore are Detroit's other inactives.

Washington D.C.'s XFL team unveiled as the Defenders

It's one of the most exciting components during the beginning of a new franchise or league: finding out the team names.

On Wednesday, the XFL finally revealed the names for their debut franchises.

Within the group is a team that's based out of a nation's capital. Sticking with that theme, they'll be known as the D.C. Defenders.

Whether you like the name or not, one thing is for sure: The defensive side better be stout or the jokes will fly.

In addition to the Defenders, the Seattle Dragons and Dallas Renegades are among the seven other teams in the league.

The XFL is preparing to launch in 2020, with Pep Hamilton in line to be the head coach of the Defenders. Hamilton last spent time at the University of Michigan as an assistant head coach during the 2017-18 season and carries with him a great deal of NFL coaching experience.
