    Cornerback Chris Houston was cut by the Lions on Friday. According to the team, a mutual decision was made to let Houston go so he could rehab "a significant medical procedure" on his own. Houston had surgery on his toe back in May and many within the organization questioned whether or not he'd be ready to play at a high level again soon. Houston had 210 total tackles, 45 passes defensed, 10 interceptions and two touchdowns in four years with the Lions. The defensive back had signed a five-year extension last spring.

    Chris Houston at a crossroads

    Lions cornerback Chris Houston had arguably his worst season in 2013, and coaches aren't sure he'll regain the form that made him Detroit's top cover man from 2010-12, reports the Detroit Free Press. Houston continues to deal with a toe injury that caused him to miss four games last year. "I'm not certain," Caldwell said when asked if Houston would bounce back strong. "You're never 100% certain about anything. I can't be certain if I'm going to wake up tomorrow morning. Tomorrow's not promised to me, so I'm not certain. We'll see. He's a young man, and typically, they heal pretty quickly, unlike old guys like me. We anticipate that he'll come along, but we'll have to just wait and see."
