The Lions head into their first playoff game in 12 years, Saturday against the Saints, the healthiest they’ve been in more than a month.
Friday’s injury report list’s only safety Chris Harris (back) as doubtful for Saturday night’s game in New Orleans.
Safety Louis Delmas, who hasn’t played since Thanksgiving with a right knee injury, is listed as probable. Delmas practiced all week for the first time since hurting the knee six weeks ago.
Also probable for the Lions are: defensive end Cliff Arvil (back), corner Aaron Berry (shoulder), defensive tackle Nick Fairley (foot), corner Chris Houston (knee/hand), receiver Calvin Johnson (Achilles), corner Alphonso Smith (foot), running back Kevin Smith (ankle/knee) defensive tackle Corey Williams (hip) and defensive end Willie Young (ankle).
The Lions should have all 11 starters on defense for the game.
That includes Williams, who missed last week’s game in Green Bay, and Berry, who hasn’t played since Dec. 11 against the Vikings.
It’s a good time for the Lions to be healthy.
