Lions secondary short-handed again at 49ers

Detroit cornerback Chris Houston and safety Louis Delmas are

inactive for the second straight game, leaving the Lions

short-handed in the secondary again for a key NFC Sunday night game

at San Francisco.

Rookie cornerback Bill Bentley also is out after sustaining a

concussion in a 27-23 season-opening win against the Rams.

Delmas is recovering from left knee surgery, while Houston has

an ankle injury. Drayton Florence replaced Houston, John Wendling

started for Delmas and Jacob Lacey in place of Bentley.

49ers running back Brandon Jacobs is out for the second straight

week with a left knee injury and so is wide receiver and return man

Ted Ginn Jr. because of an injured right ankle.

San Francisco’s first-round draft pick, wide receiver A.J.

Jenkins, was inactive for the first time.
