CB Chris Houston among five defensive starters missing practice

Posted by ttwentyman on November 8, 2012 – 1:06 pm

The Lions got one defensive starter back on the practice field Thursday, but added a new one to list of missing.

Cornerback Chris Houston did not participate in the portion of practice open to the media because of flu-like symptoms.

Houston joined fellow defensive starters Cliff Avril (back), Corey Williams (knee), Louis Delmas (knee) and Amari Spievey (concussion) on the list of non-participants in practice.

Receiver Calvin Johnson missed his second consecutive practice, but told Detroitlions.com that his injured left knee was feeling better this week than it was last week at this time.

Receiver Titus Young (knee) also missed his second straight practice.

As expected, starting defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch was back on the practice field after his customary Wednesday rest day.

    Yet Matt Stafford and CJ are out there practicing everyday? It is time the Lions cut loose players who rather take “breaks” than practice and get better. I personally think Ricardo Silva and Jonte Green make better starters than those they are replacing. It seems the same names are constantly on the “NON-practice” list, including Delmas, and Spievey ad Avril.
    I would like to see what Willie Young’s production would be for a season if he played full time. He would have to exclude stupid mistakes causing penalties, but I bet his sack total would be higher than Avrils’ for allot less $$$!
