Many Lions limited in practice
By Michael Rothstein
ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- The good news for the Detroit Lions: only one player, Nate Burleson, wasn't at practice.
The not so good news -- a number of players were limited in some way. Now, don't read too much into this because it could be a day of rest with a very minor injury or soreness, but the full list of names is daunting.
Today's limited players: Defensive end Ziggy Ansah (abdomen), safety Don Carey (hamstring), safety Louis Delmas (knee), wide receiver Patrick Edwards (ankle), right tackle Jason Fox (groin), right tackle Corey Hilliard (groin), cornerback Chris Houston (hand), wide receiver Calvin Johnson (knee), linebacker DeAndre Levy (abdomen), linebacker Ashlee Palmer (ankle), left guard Rob Sims (shoulder) and defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh (knee).
In all, that means 12 players (10 starters) were limited in some way during practice. This isn't alarming, though, because they all were able to practice a little bit at least and all of them were moving around a bit during the media portion of practice Thursday.
Absent from that list is running back Reggie Bush, who practiced fully for the second straight day.
