Lions-Packers FeatureThe NFC North Division-leading Detroit Lions visit the New Orleans Saints for a 1:00 game tomorrow afternoon. Hear the broadcast on AM 1400 and FM 99.3, WCCY. Six Lions are listed as “questionable” for the game, including linebacker DeAndre Levy, although he is still not expected to make his season debut as he recovers from a knee injury. See the full injury report here.

The Green Bay Packers host the Houston Texans in a 1:00 game. Aaron Rodgers is listed as “questionable” because of the hamstring injury he suffered last week. See the full injury report here.


The Detroit Tigers offered contracts to all six of their arbitration-eligible players before yesterday’s deadline. list includes shortstop Jose Iglesias, third baseman Nick Castellanos, utility man Andrew Romine, and relievers Justin Wilson, Alex Wilson and Bruce Rondon. The team will continue negotiations with each player, in hopes of avoiding arbitration hearings.


As expected, the Milwaukee Brewers did not offer a contract to first baseman Chris Carter. They already signed Eric Thames out of the Korean League to take over that position. The Brewers avoided arbitration with second baseman Scooter Gennett and outfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis by agreeing to one-year deals. They offered contracts to arbitration-eligible pitchers Chase Anderson, Wily Peralta, Tyler Thornburg and Carlos Torres and catcher Martin Maldonado.
