As expected, the Detroit Lions deactivated safety Louis Delmas (knee) and cornerback Chris Houston (ankle). They announced rookie Bill Bentley and Jacob Lacey as their starting cornerbacks. Drayton Florence is likely to be on the field in the nickel.
The Lions deactivated receiver Ryan Broyles, who is still working his way back from a torn ACL. Broyles is healthy enough to play, but as the No. 4 or No. 5 receiver, he isn't really much help on special teams at the moment.
