The Lions have listed safety Louis Delmas and cornerback Chris Houston doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Rams on the team’s official injury report released today.
Both Delmas and Houston missed practice for a fourth time this week as they continue to rehab from knee and ankle injuries, respectively.
Lions head coach Jim Schwartz left open the possibility for both Delmas and Houston to play Sunday by listing them ‘doubtful’ instead of ‘out’, but it seems unlikely at this point that we’ll see either player in uniform on Sunday.
“Both of those guys are getting better and we’ll see where they are on Sunday,” Schwartz said after practice Friday. “Both of them are veteran players; both guys can step in and play with little or no practice time. But we’ll just see when we get to Sunday.”
The Lions are likely to start John Wendling in the place of Delmas as they’ve done all preseason. He’ll play alongside Erik Coleman at the other safety spot. Rookie Bill Bentley and, most likely, Jacob Lacey will start at the corner spots.
