The starters will see their most significant time this pre-season when the Lions visit the Jaguars.
Rookie running back Ameer Abdullah says he's looking to be consistent.
"Make a couple plays, but most importantly just being sound in my assignments," says Abdullah. "Making sure I'm playing up to speed, finishing hard, and get a good test of where I am and my conditioning.
Typically starters play at least the first half, sometimes three quarters, of the third pre-season game in preparation for the regular season.
Both Detroit and Jacksonville are 1-and-1 in the pre-season.
Kick-off is set for 8pm.
