The Ravens like to throw the deep ball. The Lions are going to struggle to cover it on Monday night.
That’s the easy conclusion to draw from the news that Lions cornerbacks Chris Houston and Darius Slay both missed practice today.
Slay, who had arthroscopic knee surgery last week, was already expected to miss Monday night’s game against Baltimore. But now it appears that Houston, who has been out of practice all week with a toe injury, will have to miss Monday night as well.
That would leave the Lions with Rashean Mathis and Jonte Green as their starting cornerbacks against the Ravens.
