The Lions were without starting CB Chris Houston to start the second half in Miami.
The team announced Houston suffered a shoulder injury, but replays on the play in question tell a different story. It appeared Houston was cleated in the face while making a tackle late on Dolphins WR Marlon Moore late during the second quarter. As Moore spun to get out of Houston’s grasp, his cleat went underneath Houston’s facemask.
Definitely not a common NFL injury. For now, Tye Hill has replaced Houston.
