DETROIT -- Receivers Stephen Burton and rookie Jarius Wright are among the Vikings' inactives for today's game against the Lions at Ford Field.

The Vikings will go with four active receivers, including Jerome Simpson, who is making his Vikings debut after serving a three-game suspension. The other receivers are Michael Jenkins, Devin Aromashodu and some guy who leads the league in receptions, Percy Harvin.

The other inactives are: No. 3 QB McLeod Bethel-Thompson, safety Andrew Sendejo, who has an ankle injury, guard Mark Asper, safety Mistral Raymond, who also has an ankle injury, and linebacker Erin Henderson, who still hasn't been cleared to return from the concussion he suffered in Week 2 at Indianapolis.
