Lions Vs. Rams: Louis Delmas, Chris Houston Among 5 Names On Week 1 Injury Report

With both Louis Delmas and Chris Houston nursing injuries heading into Sunday's opener, the Detroit Lions will need to be sharp on the back end against a West Coast-oriented St. Louis offense to open the year on the right foot. Thankfully for the Lions though, the two star defensive backs are the only Lions players listed on the official Week 1 injury report.

Neither player was able to practice on Wednesday as each guy remains completely unlikely to suit up for Sunday's game. Delmas, a four-year pro from Western Michigan, was expected to take the next step at the safety position this fall with an improved defense around him before suffering a knee injury in camp. Houston has yet to practice since late August with a nagging ankle injury and is also facing an uncertain timetable of his own.

Currently dealing with a trio of defensive tackles listed on their injury report, Michael Brockers, Matthew Conrath and Darell Scott, the Rams should still be fully healthy on the offensive side of the ball to kick off the season. With quarterback Sam Bradford seeking to bounce back after playing in only 10 games a year ago, the third-year signal caller knows full well that he will face a stout test against Ndamukong Suh and a penetrating Detroit defensive line.
