Houston returns to practice; Delmas, Calvin Johnson remain out
ALLEN PARK — Cornerback Chris Houston arrived to practice late, but he ran out on the field and took part in drills. He was still wearing a soft cast on his left hand. He told reporters on Wednesday that he would play on Sunday in Green Bay. His knee, which he injured on Thanksgiving, is not 100 percent but close enough.
Calvin Johnson (Achilles) didn’t practice for the second straight day but he expects to play Sunday.
Safety Louis Delmas (knee) has not returned to practice. Corey Williams (hip) was out for the second straight day.
Defensive end Willie Young (ankle) who sat out on Wednesday was back at it.
Rookie Nick Fairley, who practiced Wednesday but was seen limping afterward, was out on Thursday. He’s been in and out of practices all along dealing with the foot that he broke in training camp.
