Four starters returned to the practice field Friday for the Lions.
Receivers Calvin Johnson (knee) and Titus Young (knee), along with defensive end Cliff Avril (back), participated in the portion of practice open to the media for the first time this week.
Johnson didn’t practice at all last week before playing in the Lions’ game at Jacksonville, so it’s a good sign his sore left knee is feeling better.
Cornerback Chris Houston was also back at practice after missing Thursday with flu-like symptoms.
The team was still without safeties Louis Delmas (knee) and Amari Spievey (concussion), defensive tackle Corey Williams (knee) and offensive tackle Corey Hilliard (knee).
The injury report with game designations for Sunday’s game at Minnesota will be released at 4 p.m. on detroitlions.com
