DT Corey Williams returns to practice

Posted by ttwentyman on October 18, 2012 – 11:53 am

The Lions got an important part of their defensive line back at practice today with the return of defensive tackle Corey Williams.

Williams has missed the last two games since undergoing knee surgery Sept. 25. In the locker room after practice Wednesday, Williams said he was feeling better and was taking it “day-to-day.”

The Lions will release the first injury report of the week today 4 p.m. on Detroitlions.com.

Cornerbacks Bill Bentley (shoulder) and Jacob Lacey (concussion) were not at practice. Both players left Sunday’s win in Philadelphia and did not return.

Safety Louis Delmas didn’t participate in the portion of practice open to the media. Delmas started his first game of the season in Philadelphia and played well with seven tackles, two tackles for loss and an interception. He practiced Wednesday, so Thursday might have just been a day of rest.

Defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch was given his weekly day of rest and did not practice.

Receiver Nate Burleson and linebacker DeAndre Levy returned to practice after not practicing on Wednesday.

    Two or two and a half weeks after knee surgery, C-W’s practicing? He must be a fast healer or have a high tolerance for pain. That’s impressive and the Lions could use him against the Bears–even if it’s for only 15-20 snaps.

    I would of course defer to Kyle Vanden Bosch about this, but is it typical for young 20plus year old players to have to have days off of Practice??? From what I have witnessed this year, they need all the practice they can get! Only Matt Stafford and CJ should be given such preferential treatment, because they KNOW what they are doing. Also, NOONE could ever doubt Mr. Vanden Bosch’s commitment to achieving excellence, and he is older. But, man, the rest of you guys seem like you are in Nursery School. You get paid MILLIONS of DOLLARS to do a job, based on your abilities, conditioning, intelligence, and YES, Practice! Last week was a good example of STUPID MISTAKES that have plagued the LIONS for years now. Mistakes evidently due to lack of practice! GROW UP!

    Um… Stafford has been inconsistent with a few of his throws as well. Overall he’s been good, but not great. He needs to practice so he can continue to build that chemistry with his receivers and TE’s. CJ needs to be there to make our CB’s better and to mentor our young WR’s. I agree our young CB’s haven’t played the best football, but they are getting better with more experience. I’m not a medical expert, but limiting practice for those coming off of an injury or surgery is probably a good thing. It’s still early in the season and we need everyone as healthy as they can be through out the entire season. Don’t forget that players are bigger, stronger, and faster. Even with the new rules to help keep players healthy, this game takes a huge toll on the body. All it takes is one wrong hit and even the best players in the league will get hurt.

    With all due respect, who are you yelling at? I think the coaches have reasons for giving a player a day of rest. There was nobody on that list that didn’t make sense to get a rest day. This is common in all professional sports.
    The players are valued because of their ability help the team win games. That requires work, as well as rest. A little soreness can become a nagging injury if not treated correctly. These people are professionals. Let them do their jobs.
