Lions vs. Texans injury report: Jeff Backus doubtful for Thursday's game

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

Detroit Lions offensive tackle Jeff Backus is listed as doubtful for the Thanksgiving Day game against the Houston Texans.

The final injury report for Thursday's game between the Detroit Lions and Houston Texans is out. There are several notable designations for the Lions. For starters, Jeff Backus is doubtful, meaning it's unlikely that he will play on Thursday. On the flip side, Louis Delmas and Drayton Florence are both questionable, meaning they could play. Florence was listed as limited for Wednesday's walkthrough, indicating that he's been cleared from his concussion. Finally, Nick Fairley, who hadn't been listed on the injury report earlier this week, is questionable because of an illness.
