The Detroit Lions will be without starting cornerback Chris Houston today against the Green Bay Packers due to a foot injury.
WIth Houston scratched, rookie Darius Slay is expected to start opposite Rashean Mathis.
The backups will be Bill Bentley and Jonte Green.
"I'm ready," Slay told Detroit reporters. "Ain't no second-guessing about me being a starter. If they tell me I'm going to be a starter, I'm going out there with the same mentality I got out there when I wasn't. Go out there and compete and beat the guy in front of me."
