Houston, Delmas still missing from practice
ALLEN PARK — Chris Houston and Louis Delmas were not on the practice field again today (Friday). Neither has practiced all week which makes them extremely doubtful for Sunday’s opener against the Rams at Ford Field.
The official word could come when the early inactives are released at 4 p.m. today.
John Wendling is expected to start for Delmas who had knee surgery on Aug. 7.
It’s unclear who will start at left cornerback for Houston. It could be Drayton Florence with Jacob Lacey at nickel. Also, Kevin Barnes could be in the mix.
Rookie Bill Bentley will start at right cornerback.
