Locker Room Buzz: Detroit Lions
By Michael Rothstein
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Observed in the locker room after the Detroit Lions' 22-9 loss to the Green Bay Packers.
Houston not 100 percent: It shouldn’t be too much of a surprise, but cornerback Chris Houston said he was not fully healthy playing against Green Bay on Sunday.
“I’m not all the way 100 percent," Houston said. "But I’m out there, so it ain’t no excuse."
Houston said he could feel the injured hamstring on deeper routes Sunday, but “I played through it and I made it through.”
Durham’s thumb: Wide receiver Kris Durham had a fairly large blue, almost cellophane-like, wrap on his right hand after the game. He said, though, this wasn’t a new injury.
As for what’s wrong with it, Durham wouldn’t say much.
“Aches,” Durham said.
Wasting no time: The locker room staff wasted little time breaking down the visiting locker room after the game in Lambeau Field. Almost as soon as a player departed their locker with their bags, their folding chair was packed up and stacked.
It was an unbelievably efficient process -- and one that had the entire locker room almost completely clear by the time running back Reggie Bush, the last player to leave the locker room, departed.
