Five starters missing from Lions practice

ALLEN PARK — Five starters were missing from practice today (Wednesday) as the Lions prepare to play at the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.

Brandon Pettigrew, who injured his ankle early in Sunday’s loss at Green Bay, and Nick Fairley, who hurt his shoulder in that same game were missing from action.

 Safety Louis Delmas, who has played in just five games this season and didn’t play at Green Bay, was out again with his lingering knee problem.

 Cornerback Chris Houston, who has been dealing with an ankle, didn’t practice and neither did cornerback Jacob Lacey.

 Defensive tackle Andre Fluellen, who was re-signed Tuesday, was at practice.

 Corey Williams, who had missed four of the last five games with a knee injury, was placed on injured reserve on Tuesday.

 Kickoff is 4:15 p.m. on Sunday at the University of Phoenix Stadium. The Cards (4-9) have lost nine straight and are coming off a 58-0 loss to Seattle. The Lions (4-9) have lost five straight.

Five things the Lions must do to beat the cardinals.
One for sure is run right at them.....
the Cardinals are good against the pass, so it only makes sense to manufacture a running game. This will not be easy for a team that is set up to pass.
As a fan, i would like to see Foxx, and Reif get a lot of playing time against a good front four......
But alas, the Lions will do what they do.......
i hate to say I'm rooting for Zona, but a top corner Like milliner goes to the Lions should they lose this Game.
