             === Lions' Delmas active, Backus out for Thursday ===
 
 Detroit,  MI (Sports  Network)  - Detroit  Lions left  tackle  Jeff Backus  is
 inactive for Thursday's game against Houston.
 
 Backus  had  started a franchise-record  186 straight regular-season games for
 the  Lions  since the  team  drafted  him in  2001,  but  that streak  is  now
 broken as he is suffering from a hamstring injury.
 
 Also  out  for the Lions is  defensive tackle Corey  Williams as he has a knee
 injury.
 
 However, safety Louis Delmas is back after missing the past three games with a
 left  knee injury,  while cornerback  Drayton  Florence is  also active  after
 sustaining  a concussion during last week's loss to Green Bay as is cornerback
 Jacob Lacey, who missed Wednesday's practice with a foot injury.
