Lions hope secondary will be ready for Rodgers
DETROIT (AP) - Although the Detroit Lions were pleased with their victory over Chicago last weekend, the game's last few minutes highlighted a potential trouble spot.
With cornerbacks Chris Houston and Rashean Mathis sidelined because of injuries, the Lions allowed two late touchdowns before holding on for a 40-32 win. Now the secondary has another challenge on the horizon - Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers this weekend.
Coach Jim Schwartz said Mathis was held out as a precaution but passed a concussion test. He's been back at practice. Houston, on the other hand, did not practice Thursday.
