Detroit Lions: Chris Houston, Calvin Johnson, Travis Lewis don't practice

ALLEN PARK — Cornerback Chris Houston, who injured his foot on Sunday, did not practice today (Tuesday). 

Calvin Johnson was on the field stretching, but didn’t participate in the portion of practice open to the media.

Travis Lewis, who was not on Monday’s injury report, was also missing.

Returning were safety Louis Delmas (knee), defensive end Israel Idonije (knee) and safety Glover Quin (ankle).

Following Sunday’s loss, the Lions had a walk-through on Monday. Tuesday was the only full day of practice in preparation for the Thanksgiving game against the Packers.

The Lions (6-5) are tied with the Bears (6-5) atop the NFC North. The Packers are a half game back at 5-5-1. 

The Lions lost at Green Bay in Week 5 playing without Calvin Johnson and Nate Burleson.
