Practice Report: Bell has Achilles injury

By Michael Rothstein

ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- Running back Joique Bell's injury is officially listed as an Achilles injury on Wednesday's Detroit Lions practice report.

Bell was injured in the second half against Pittsburgh, but Detroit coach Jim Schwartz said Bell could have returned to the game but did not.

Other Lions missing practice Wednesday were cornerback Jonte Green (illness), wide receiver Calvin Johnson (knee) and safety Glover Quin (ankle).

The limited Lions list was much longer, including defensive end Ziggy Ansah (ankle), cornerback Bill Bentley (knee), wide receiver Nate Burleson (forearm), safety Louis Delmas (knee), defensive tackle Andre Fluellen (thigh), defensive end Israel Idonije (knee) and tight end Brandon Pettigrew (knee).

Pettigrew also had a massive, massive wrap on his left knee as he went through drills Wednesday.

In good news for Detroit, right tackle Corey Hilliard (knee) practiced fully Wednesday.
