Practice report: Lions remain fairly healthy
By Michael Rothstein
ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- Lions receiver Calvin Johnson reported for his third straight day of practice and running back Theo Riddick practiced for the first time since suffering a concussion against Green Bay almost two weeks ago.
Oh, and while he wasn't actually practicing, receiver Nate Burleson caught footballs with his right hand only while wearing a blue protective sleeve on his left wrist and forearm.
The only Lions not at practice Friday were right tackle Jason Fox, tight end Tony Scheffler and safety Louis Delmas, but Delmas did walk out toward the end of practice. He wasn't going to practice but he was there.
As far as those missing practice, this is a typical rest day for Delmas, but Fox and Scheffler haven't been seen all week.
