Lions receiver Calvin Johnson was back at the portion of practice open to the media Thursday morning after missing practice Wednesday and later showing up on the injury report with a foot injury. Johnson was listed on Thursday’s injury report as a full participant in practice.
“My foot’s good, you know. Just wanted to give it a day to rest yesterday so that I could get out here and stress it today,” Johnson said after practice Thursday. “You want to stress it on a day like today because it’s a big run day for us so you can see how it would respond in a game.”
Cornerback Chris Houston practiced for a second consecutive day, which is a good sign his injured ankle responded well to practicing Wednesday for the first time in nearly three weeks. However, Houston was still listed as a limited participant in practice for a second straight say.
Houston seems to be trending toward playing on in San Francisco on Sunday, but we’ll have to wait until the Friday’s game designations come out on the injury report. If he doesn’t start, the Lions are likely to go with Jacob Lacey and Drayton Florence at cornerback.
Safety Louis Delmas (knee), cornerback Bill Bentley (concussion), defensive tackle Corey Williams (knee), defensive end Lawrence Jackson (calf) and linebacker Travis Lewis (quad) were all listed as no practice on Thursday’s injury report.
Williams did not practice Thursday after being listed as limited on Wednesday’s report.
Bentley remains out after suffering a concussion against the Rams last week.
