Allen Park, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - Detroit Lions guard Larry Warford has been ruled out for Sunday's NFC Wild Card Playoff in Dallas.
Warford missed practice all week with a right knee injury he suffered last Sunday in Green Bay. Rookie Travis Swanson will start in his place.
Swanson made his first career start at center last week in place of veteran Dominic Raiola, who was suspended for the game due to a stomping incident in Week 16 against the Bears.
Defensive tackle Nick Fairley is listed as doubtful after taking limited participation on Thursday and Friday. It was the first time he was on the practice field since suffering a MCL and PCL injury in his right knee in a Week 8 victory over the Atlanta Falcons in London.
listed as probable for Detroit are defensive ends Ziggy Ansah (toe) and Darryl Tapp (not injury related) and wide receiver Calvin Johnson (ankle).
