Lions remain fairly healthy
By Michael Rothstein
ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- No surprises for the second straight day on the Detroit Lions' injury report.
Wide receiver Calvin Johnson (knee), safety Louis Delmas (knee), cornerback Rashean Mathis (groin) and running back Joique Bell (ribs) all were limited in practice Thursday.
All four have practiced the past two days. Johnson, Delmas and Mathis appear to be good bets to play Sunday against Cincinnati. Bell could be more of a question mark as a rib injury could make it difficult for him to carry the ball.
Wide receiver Nate Burleson (forearm), right tackle Jason Fox (knee), running back Theo Riddick (concussion), tight end Tony Scheffler (tight end) and linebacker Ashlee Palmer (ankle) all missed practice. Palmer typically misses Thursday practices.
