The Detroit Lions are just days away from an important NFC North showdown with the Chicago Bears and, outside of Nate Burleson, are getting healthier at just the right time.
the Thursday injury report looks long, but Burleson (forearm) was the only Lion who didn’t suit up for practice. Calvin Johnson (knee), Rob Sims (shoulder) and Louis Delmas (knee) returned to practice on a limited basis after sitting out yesterday.
Ziggy Ansah (abdomen), Don Carey (hamstring), Patrick Edwards (ankle), Jason Fox (groin), Corey Hilliard (groin), Chris Houston (hand), DeAndre Levy (abdomen), Ashlee Palmer (ankle) and Ndamukong Suh (knee) were also limited during today’s practice. Hilliard, Houston and Suh are new to the injury report as of today’s update.
Reggie Bush (knee) continues to be listed on the injury report, but he was able to practice fully for the second day in a row.
