Injury report: Lions healthy and ready to roll

Posted by ttwentyman on January 6, 2012 – 5:00 pm

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.

    The D-line will decide the game. If we can get pressure in 4 seconds or less on most plays we win. If Drew has time to pick us a part everyone will blame the D-backs. We need big play from Fairley as a healthy, big and rested Rookie!

    GOOO Lions!!!!

    I’ve been a Lion fan all my Life.I am now 56 years old. My only wish as always been for the Lions to do good. I have watched Love ones die who never got the chance to see the Lions go to the Super Bowl. I truly believe that we are finally on the right track. So to all those fans out there who remember the Russ Thomas era. To those who remember the club foot Field Goal kicker who kicked the 63 yard field goal (New Orleans) to beat our Lions. Or the first wild card game when Dallas beat our Lions. The names that we will never forget Rick Kane,Lem Barney Charlie Sanders,Alex Karras,Roger Brown,Larry Hand,Mike Lucci,Bill Munson,Greg Landry,Steve Owens,Dexter Bussey,Hoarce King, To name just a few. Our time is close at hand. GO LIONS..

    I second everything Brian Rexford said in his comments. No mental errors. Bring on the rush. Secondary listen to Delmas and no blown assignments and we can beat these Saints. We have the offensive firepower. We have the defensive ability to shut down anyone when we play up to the level we should. Let’s prove everyone wrong and take this to the next level.

    If we can get some health out of these guys in 2012/13, the sky is the limit.
