Practice report: Calvin Johnson there again

October, 17, 2013
ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson practiced again Thursday, giving more of an impression that he might be inching closer to being fully healthy.

Five Lions did not practice: right tackle Jason Fox, linebacker Ashlee Palmer, wide receiver Nate Burleson, running back Theo Riddick and tight end Tony Scheffler. Riddick, however, was at practice again wearing his jersey and a beanie.

None of these are surprising. Palmer typically does not practice Thursdays. Riddick and Scheffler are recovering from concussions. Burleson remains out with his broken forearm and Fox has a knee injury.
