Houston, Johnson and Avril among seven missing practice

Posted by ttwentyman on November 14, 2012 – 1:06 pm

The Lions were without three-quarters of their starting secondary Wednesday at the portion of practice open to the media.

Safeties Louis Delmas (knee) and Amari Spievey (concussion) remain out, and cornerback Chris Houston joined them after hurting his ankle in last week’s loss to the Vikings.

The Lions host reigning MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Packers at Ford Field this Sunday.

Despite not practicing, Delmas looked to have a little more pep in his step. The Lions continue to list him as day-to-day with that left knee injury and it appears he’s getting closer to returning.

The Lions were also without receiver Calvin Johnson, defensive end Cliff Avril, defensive tackle Corey Williams and safety Erik Coleman.

Cornerback Drayton Florence continues to practice while waiting for activation from short-term injured reserve. The Lions don’t have to activate Florence until next week, but he’s expected to be activated later this week and play vs. the Packers. He’s been out since Week 2 when he broke his forearm at San Francisco.

    I wonder has best had enough time to realize he wont be able to play football and I am sure the doctors our trying to convince him by not letting him play! Because of the legal issue if they let him play and he gets hit hard he will be done is it worth it to keep dragging this out ! he will never play again do something like a medical release so we do not have to lose a player for Florence return!
