Detroit Lions: Cornerback a concern with Chris Houston, Darius Slay still out

ALLEN PARK — Looks like the Lions could be short at cornerback on Monday night against the Ravens.

Cornerbacks Chris Houston (toe) and Darius Slay (knee) did not practice today (Saturday) and haven’t practiced all week. The game designations will be released at 4 p.m. today.

Houston missed the game on Thanksgiving with a foot injury and Slay got the start for him that day. Houston now is dealing with turf toe.

Slay missed the Philadelphia game after undergoing knee surgery on Dec. 6.

If both miss the game, look for Bill Bentley to possibly start opposite Rashean Mathis with Don Carey in at nickel.

Louis Delmas (knee) was the only other player to miss practice. He routinely practices just one day per week and that was on Friday this week.
