The Lions got three key starters back on the practice field Thursday as they continue to get ready for Sunday’s matchup vs. Green Bay.
Cornerback Chris Houston, receiver Calvin Johnson and defensive end Cliff Avril all returned to practice after sitting out Wednesday.
Houston injured his ankle in the fourth quarter last week at Minnesota and did not return to the game. He said afterward the injury wasn’t serious, though. It appears he was right.
Avril, who wasn’t yet cleared to return from a concussion by practice time Wednesday, was cleared sometime after practice and returned to action today.
The Lions also got safety Erik Coleman back after he missed practice yesterday with headaches associated from being poked in the eye.
The Lions are still without safeties Louis Delmas and Amari Spievey and defensive tackle Corey Williams.
