One thing you can count on with the Detroit Lions is that they are never, ever boring. Follow the latest news including injuries, roster moves and more here daily from Oakland Press beat writer Paula Pasche. Plus you'll find regular commentary about the team.


Backus doubtful, Delmas questionable for Thanksgiving

Left tackle Jeff Backus (hamstring) is doubtful to play Thursday against the Houston Texans, although there’s still a chance since he hasn’t been designated as out. Backus has started a remarkable 186 straight games. 

 The Lions didn’t practice Wednesday, so on their injury report they had to project who would have practiced and if they were full or limited.

 Free safety Louis Delmas (knee) would have been limited in practice. He has missed three straight games and only played in three all season.

 Cornerback Drayton Florence would have been limited, which means he’s been cleared to play after his concussion on Sunday. He is questionable for Thursday.

  Nick Fairley (illness), Jacob Lacey (foot) and Corey Williams (knee) are also questionable.
