Tackle Jeff Backus has been activated off the Active/Non-Football Injury list and is currently practicing with the team. Tackle Isaac Sowells was released to make room on the roster for Backus.

Wide receiver Calvin Johnson, who did not play Friday at Cleveland, is also practicing along with fellow wide receiver Titus Young.

During individual drills, returner Stefan Logan took reps with the running backs while starting running back Jahvid Best did not practice.

    It is becoming clear that the Lions need to find out if Jhavid Best is just a good college back or if he has the speed and quickness to produce a solid running threat. Bell and Harrison haven’t shown any spark in two games. Ian Johnson needs to start with the first team and see if he has any ability to help the pass game. Stoval showed the ability to make plays, that Williams has failed to produce. He is a big body who would be valuable dual threat in the red zone with Calvin.

    Still concerned with the running game and the secondary…if we can’t run the ball…a big red target on Stafford…Go Lions

    Richard Heyman:

    Harrison and Bell No Spark…..Harrison did go 6/27 a 4.5 ypc Average…and he will get Better

    Harrison is a home run Back in addition to being able to run the middle. In the last 3 Yrs. Harrisons longest Runs for the year were for 50 yrds 71 yrds and 72 yrds…….As blazing fast as best is his longest was 45 yrds……

    Last year Best rushed 171 times for 555 yrds and a 3.2 Average
    Harrison……………………. 71 times for 330 yrds and a 4.8 Average
    Bell…………………………….47 times for 99 yrds and a 2.1 Average

    YOU WILL GET ALL THE SPARK YOU HAVE ALWAYS HOPED FOR WITH JEROME HARRISON …Who will put pressure on the inside and free Best up a little on the outside. Best numbers will go Way Up and should with his speed.
