The Lions got a large contingent of players back on the field Friday in the team’s final practice before leaving for Oakland Friday night.
Corner Eric Wright (hamstring), defensive end Lawrence Jackson (thigh bruise) and linebacker Justin Durant (hamstring) all practiced on Friday after sitting out Wednesday and Thursday.
Friday was the first time Jackson has practiced in nearly a month. He’s missed the team’s last four games with that bruise.
Safety Louis Delmas (knee) was back at practice in limited fashion. He had a helmet but was not participating in individual drills in the portion of practice open to the media.
Defensive tackle Nick Fairley (foot) and defensive end Willie Young (ankle) ran off to the side with trainers instead of participating in practice.
Running back Kevin Smith practiced and it continues to look like he’ll play Sunday.
The only player not doing anything at practice was corner Aaron Berry (shoulder).
The official injury report will player’s status for Sunday will be released at 4 p.m. on detroitlions.com.
