The Lions are looking pretty healthy ahead of Sunday’s date with the Buccaneers.
Tim Twentyman of the team’s website reports that wide receiver Calvin Johnson, safety Louis Delmas, running back Joique Bell, safety Glover Quin and cornerback Jonte Green all participated in practice on Thursday after missing Wednesday’s session, which means that every member of the Lions roster was on the field for practice.
Quin was wearing a walking boot to protect his injured ankle on Wednesday, but his return to unhindered mobility is a sign he’ll be in the starting lineup come Sunday. Bell should move back to the No. 2 role now that neither his foot nor mud is a concern while Johnson and Delmas were just getting their weekly day of rest on Wednesday.
Many of those players are likely to be listed as limited participants, but the fact that they’re practicing is a pretty good sign that they’ll be on the field come kickoff. Twentyman reported that defensive end Israel Idonije appeared to be the most limited of all the players as he sat out positional drills.
