Detroit Lions: Chris Houston out vs. Packers; no other surprise inactives

DETROIT — The Lions will be without starting cornerback Chris Houston who injured his foot in Sunday’s loss to Tampa Bay. Houston had not practiced and was listed as doubtful for this game.

Rookie Darius Slay will start for Houston with Rashean Mathis at the other cornerback spot. It's his first start since Week Two.

No other surprises among the inactives. For the second game return specialist  Micheal Spurlock is inactive. Jeremy Ross will handle the return duties.

Other Lions’ inactives:  quarterback Kellen Moore, guard Leroy Harris, running back Mikel Leshoure, tackle Corey HIlliard and guard Rodney Austin who was signed from the practice squad on Wednesday.
