DETROIT (AP) — Detroit Lions edge rusher James Houston is inactive against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday in an NFC divisional playoff game.

Houston was questionable on the injury report after showing signs in practice that he might be able to return from a broken leg for the first time since Week 2.

Tampa Bay outside linebacker Shaquil Barrett (ankle) and backup running back Chase Edmonds (toe) were cleared to play after being listed as questionable.

Lions rookie tight end Sam LaPorta was also active after being questionable with a knee injury. Detroit previously ruled out returner and receiver Kalif Raymond for a second straight game with a knee injury.
