DETROIT -- Packers safety Darren Sharper and linebacker Nick Barnett were taken off the active roster for Thursday's game against the Lions because of injuries.

Sharper (bruised ribs) and Barnett (ankle) were hurt in last weekend's win against San Francisco.

Sharper has two interceptions and 65 tackles this season. Barnett, a rookie, leads the Packers with 102 tackles and three interceptions.
