Lions coach Jim Schwartz said Monday that all of his 53 players would be “in the mix to play this week” when the Chargers come to Ford Field on Saturday.
That means none of the injuries the Lions are dealing with are long-term.
However, there were still a number of players missing from Tuesday’s first practice of the week.
Safety Louis Delmas, who had arthroscopic knee surgery on Saturday, did not practice.
Delmas didn’t travel to Oakland and hasn’t played since hurting the knee against the Packers on Thanksgiving.
Also not participating in the portion of practice open to the media were: defensive tackle Corey Williams, safety Chris Harris, corner Don Carey and long snapper Don Muhlbach.
Corner Aaron Berry practiced for the first time since separating his right shoulder against the Vikings Dec. 11 and to part in individual drills.
Berry still looks to be favoring that right shoulder some, though.
Corner Chris Houston, who started against Oakland Sunday but was replaced by Alphonso Smith, was participating in practice.
Defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch got his usual day of rest to begin the workweek.
Fellow defensive end Lawrence Jackson took part in his second practice since suffering a thigh bruise against the Bears back in November.
Running back Kevin Smith (high ankle sprain) practiced and looked fine.
There will be no official injury report released by the team today.
