Because of their game Monday night at Chicago, there were some adjustments made to the Lions’ practice schedule. The team did not practice on Wednesday as head coach Jim Schwartz chose to instead have a walk through for what he called “a mental day.”
“There’s a lot of different reasons to do it and I think the players will be a little fresher as a result,” Schwartz said.
Today, the team was back on the field in the afternoon, and relatively healthy considering this is Week 8.
Receiver Calvin Johnson (knee) and cornerback Bill Bentley (shoulder) participated in the portion of practice open to the media.
Four players sat out, including: Defensive end Cliff Avril (back), cornerback Jacob Lacey (concussion), safety Amari Spievey (concussion) and linebacker DeAndre Levy (hamstring).
