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.
“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.”
"He is injured, there's no question about that," Caldwell said according to MLive.com. "Obviously his (lack of) participation is simply because of the fact he cannot do his job at this point."
Johnson is not going to play through a knee injury. Houston and Bentley came into the week listed as doubtful.
