49ers Vs. Lions Injury Report: Chris Houston, Louis Delmas Doubtful

The San Francisco 49ers are still relatively healthy going into their highly-anticipated matchup against the Detroit Lions on Sunday Night Football. The only significant injuries right now are to running back Brandon Jacobs and Ted Ginn, Jr. Jacobs has a knee injury, Ginn an ankle issue. Both of these Niner offensive weapons are considered questionable. Probable are punter Andy Lee (hand) and linebacker NaVorro Bowman (shoulder).

The Detroit Lions are a bit more banged up, and that could mean opportunity for the 49ers to strike offensively.

Both cornerback Chris Houston and safety Louis Delmas are listed as doubtful for this Sunday night contest. Bill Bentley is already out with a concussion, which could mean Detroit is without its top two cornerbacks against the likes of Randy Moss, Mario Manningham and Michael Crabtree.

Also questionable: Defensive tackle Corey Williams (knee) and linebacker Travis Lewis (quad) after sitting out practice; defensive end Lawrence Jackson (calf) is questionable but did return to practice today. Calvin Johnson is probable after missing practice Wednesday with a sore foot.

Talk about the injury report with 49ers fans at Niners Nation, as well as with Lions fans at Pride of Detroit.
