No surprises on Detroit Lions injury report

October, 16, 2013
ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- Not much by way of surprises on Wednesday's injury report for the Detroit Lions.

As expected, right tackle Jason Fox (knee), tight end Tony Scheffler (concussion), running back Theo Riddick (concussion), safety Louis Delmas (knee) and wide receiver Nate Burleson (forearm) were not at practice.

Also not surprising -- receiver Calvin Johnson (knee), cornerback Rashean Mathis (groin) and running back Joique Bell (ribs) were all limited. All three either played limited snaps or left Sunday's 31-17 win over the Cleveland Browns with injuries.

In perhaps better news for Detroit, cornerback Chris Houston, who will likely have the assignment of defending receiver A.J. Green when the Lions play the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, practiced fully Wednesday.
