Lions receiver Calvin Johnson was back on the practice field Thursday, after sitting out Wednesday with a sore ankle, but did so in limited fashion, according to Thursday’s injury report. Johnson was listed as “limited” on Thursday’s report with an ankle injury.
He didn’t seem too worried about it, though, when talking with the media after practice.
“Foot’s good,” he said. “It felt good today to get out there, stretch it out a little bit, full practice.”
Johnson is expected to play and start Sunday in Tennessee.
Cornerback Bill Bentley participated in practice for a second time this week, and was upgraded from limited on Wednesday to a full participant Thursday. All that means is Bentley was cleared for contact after missing last week’s 49ers game with a concussion.
Bentley and cornerback Chris Houston, who was also a full participant in practice Thursday, seem to be in line to start Sunday in Tennessee.
Tight end Tony Scheffler missed practice again Thursday with a calf injury. He also missed Wednesday and his status for Sunday is still in question.
The official game designations for Sunday are released Friday at 4 p.m.
Defensive tackle Corey Williams (knee), safety Louis Delmas (knee) and linebacker Travis Lewis (quad) were all listed as out on Thursday’s injury report.
