Allen Park – The Detroit Lions’ injury report keeps shrinking heading into the team’s matchup with the Houston Texans.

Only two Lions players missed practice Friday, cornerback Darius Slay and DeAndre Levy. Slay is healing with a hamstring injury suffered in the second quarter last weekend and is not expected to suit up against the Texans. Levy has been out of the lineup since Week 1 with quadriceps and knee injuries.

Returning to the practice were offensive linemen Riley Reiff and Corey Robinson. Reiff, the starting right tackle, missed the past two days with an illness. He should be able to play against the Texans.

Also practicing was cornerback Nevin Lawson, who popped up on the injury report with a foot injury on Thursday.
