The Detroit Lions will in fact be without Chris Houston on Thanksgiving.

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

As expected, cornerback Chris Houston is inactive for the Detroit Lions. He was ruled doubtful on Wednesday because of a foot injury, and he will not play on Thanksgiving. As a result, Darius Slay and Rashean Mathis are set to start at cornerback for the Lions, along with Bill Bentley when they're in the nickel.

Here's the Lions' full list of inactives:

QB Kellen Moore
RB Mikel Leshoure
WR Micheal Spurlock
OT Corey Hilliard
OG Rodney Austin
C Leroy Harris
CB Chris Houston

And here's the list of the Green Bay Packers' inactives:

QB Aaron Rodgers
WR Chris Harper
TE Brandon Bostick
DE C.J. Wilson
DE Jerel Worthy
LB Nate Palmer
LB Jamari Lattimore
