Calvin Johnson, Reggie Bush return to Lions practice

11/3/2014

ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- After having the bye week off, both wide receiver Calvin Johnson and running back Reggie Bush returned to practice for the Detroit Lions on Monday, possibly a sign they will both be ready to go against Miami next Sunday.

Johnson has not played since aggravating his high right ankle sprain in Week 5 against Buffalo, and Bush missed two of the past three games with an ankle sprain of his own.

Also back at practice were the recently activated Kyle Van Noy and defensive tackle C.J. Mosley, back from suspension.

Only four Lions players missed practice: tight ends Brandon Pettigrew, Joseph Fauria and Eric Ebron and defensive tackle Nick Fairley.

The Lions also made a plethora of practice squad moves Monday, signing tight end Jordan Thompson, cornerback Trevin Wade and defensive tackle Roy Philon. They also cut tight end Ifeanyi Momah from the practice squad.

Bios on new practice squad players:

TE Jordan Thompson: Thompson was cut by the Lions on Saturday after two games with the team. He was targeted once and dropped the ball, having it hit off his hands for an interception. He is a long-term project for Detroit at long-snapper.

CB Trevin Wade: Wade, from Arizona, was drafted by Cleveland in the seventh round of the 2012 draft. Between Cleveland in 2012 and New Orleans in 2013, Wade played in 15 games, making 11 tackles. He also appeared in both of the Saints playoff games last season, making two tackles.

DT Roy Philon: Philon, who went undrafted out of Louisville, has spent time with Pittsburgh and Chicago since May.
