Williams, Delmas questionable, but likely to play for Lions

ALLEN PARK, Mich. - The Lions injury report is littered with prominent names leading up to Sunday's game in Green Bay, but the list of injuries looks promising.

Both defensive tackle Corey Williams and safety Louis Delmas missed Friday's practice with knee injuries, and they are listed as questionable.

Williams played last week against Indianapolis for the first time since he had surgery in September. He missed practice all week.

Left tackle Jeff Backus, defensive tackle Nick Fairley, and cornerbacks Chris Houston and Jacob Lacey are also questionable. All should play Sunday night.

Earlier in the week, guard Rob Sims said Backus has been remarkable in returning from a hamstring injury. Backus is expected to start at left tackle this weekend.

In Green Bay, linebacker Clay Matthews, wide receiver Jordy Nelson, and cornerback Charles Woodson are all out.
