Lions getting healthier with Megatron, Reiff at practice

The Lions are getting healthier as they prepare for Sunday’s game against the Cowboys.

Detroit left tackle Riley Reiff, who suffered a hamstring injury during Sunday’s loss to the Bengals, was back on the practice field today. Reiff was limited, but being on the practice field at all is a positive step for Reiff, who was out of practice on Wednesday.

Also practicing was receiver Calvin Johnson, who sat out Wednesday to rest his sore knee. Johnson, who had an outstanding game against the Bengals, seems to be fine.

Also on the practice field for the Lions were defensive tackle Andre Fluellen (concussion) and safety Louis Delmas (knee). Both missed practice on Wednesday.

The only Lion not practicing at all today is right tackle Corey Hilliard, who has a knee injury. The Lions’ decision to sign offensive tackle Barry Richardson this week suggests that they think Hilliard may miss some game time.

    Thank God.

    Now we won’t hear the injury excuse and when other teams win it will be just the “we beat ourselves” excuse.

    I think the Lions need to seriously consider using the hail mary as a routine play.

    Lions will be 5-3 going into their bye. When they come out it’s on the road to Chicago, a game the Lions should win with all their injuries. Burelson should be back, and it’s time for a late season push.

    GO LIONS!!!!

    Not a bad idea for the Lions to hail mary it every first down. Imagine 3 more TD’s a game.

    This game will define the rest of the season for Detroit. And maybe the coaching staffs future as well.

    The Lions will find another scapegoat for Stafford.

    And I wonder how many games we could win if we tried 4 Hail Marys for each drive? Were bound to get at least one of them completed to CJ on each set, bombs away!

    In fact we should trade 100% of the offensive side of the ball except for Stafford and CJ and put that value into the Defense. As long as our only threatening play is the 50 yard pass to CJ, then well let’s gameplan around it all the way!

    @ 6mileblaze

    Being a fan since ’65, I don’t think there’s any shame in being disappointed or frustrated in your team when they lose a game. I think it’s the mark of a true fan who wants better of the team they support. And I don’t think we as fans lose hope when we voice or opinions of doubt in decisions made, rather we show passion for something we truly love, in this case, our Lions.
