The Detroit Lions were back on the practice field today getting ready for Sunday's game in Green Bay, but were without three-quarters of their starting secondary.
"It's life in the NFL," head coach Jim Schwartz said after practice. "It's Wednesday in the NFL. There's probably 31 other coaches saying the same thing, 'yeah we got a couple guys missing from practice and we'll plug some other guys in.' Honestly, we just work through it."
Houston suffered the hamstring injury in the second half vs. Chicago last week and did not return.
Both Delmas and Quin finished the game.
Cornerback Rashean Mathis was a full participant in practice. He was held out of the rest of last week's win over Chicago after sustaining a head injury in the first half.
Lions doctors and trainers never diagnosed Mathis with a concussion, but Schwartz said Monday that Mathis was held out as a precaution.
Nonetheless, he was back on the practice field today and that's good news considering quarterback Aaron Rodgers and a talented trio of Packers receivers are up next and Houston is dealing with that hamstring injury.
