The Detroit Lions have released their final injury report for Sunday's game against the San Francisco 49ers. Unfortunately, it includes a few pieces of bad news, mainly for the Lions' secondary. Cornerback Bill Bentley has been ruled out with a concussion, and fellow cornerback Chris Houston is doubtful despite taking part in practice each of the last three days (albeit on a limited basis). Also, safety Louis Delmas is considered doubtful.
Here's a look at the full Lions injury report:
WR(Foot) - Probable
DE(Calf) - Questionable
DT(Knee) - Questionable
LB Travis Lewis (Quad) - Doubtful
CB Chris Houston (Ankle) - Doubtful
CB Bill Bentley (Concussion) - Out
S(Knee) - Doubtful
It's no surprise that Bentley is out and Delmas is doubtful, but I am surprised that Houston is considered doubtful. I was expecting him to play, but it doesn't appear that he will be able to give it a go on Sunday. This means the Lions are down to Jacob Lacey, Drayton Florence, Kevin Barnes and Jonte Green at cornerback. That is very, very scary.
Here's a look at the 49ers' injury report:
RB(Knee) - Questionable
WR Ted Ginn (Ankle) - Questionable
LB NaVorro Bowman (Shoulder) - Probable
P(Hand) - Probable
