Chris Houston's X-rays on injured ankle come back negative

Hannah Foslien

Detroit Lions cornerback Chris Houston injured his ankle on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, but it looks like he will be fine.

The Detroit Lions' secondary has been ravaged by injuries this season. Nearly every week a different combination of cornerbacks and safeties starts for the Lions in the secondary. This week, for example, the Lions were without starting safeties Louis Delmas and Amari Spievey. Also, they were without Bill Bentley, who was placed on injured reserve earlier this season. Drayton Florence also remains out, although he is due to return for Week 11.

Things went from bad to worse for the Lions' secondary in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings, as cornerback Chris Houston suffered an ankle injury. It was serious enough that he had to be carted from the sideline to the locker room, but after the game he was apparently fine all things considered.

Houston actually accused a Vikings offensive lineman of falling on his ankle on purpose. He wasn't sure who did it, but Houston seemed pretty certain that the lineman fell on his ankle on purpose, injuring him in the process.
