Johnson, Quin limited in Lions practice

November, 7, 2013
ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- Detroit had no surprises on its Thursday injury/practice report.

Receivers Calvin Johnson (knee) and Nate Burleson (forearm) were limited, as were safeties Glover Quin (ankle) and Louis Delmas (knee).

Right tackle Corey Hilliard (knee), cornerback Bill Bentley (knee) and defensive end Ziggy Ansah (ankle) were out.

Special teamer and linebacker Travis Lewis (ankle) practiced fully.

As for Burleson, he said Thursday he is still unsure if he will play for the Lions on Sunday against Chicago. While he has practiced on a limited basis the past three days and was catching passes, he is still planning on going on the advice of doctors and trainers.

"No, not yet," Burleson said. "I have another meeting with the doctors [Friday], with [surgeon] Bill Moutzouros. I text him all the time. He's like my phone buddy.

"I'm like, 'Hey man, I caught the ball and did great today.' So we'll see. We'll play it by ear. I'm planning to pack my bag like everybody else and see what happens."
