-- WR Az-Zahir Hakim (knee) practiced Thursday for the first time since having arthroscopic knee surgery four weeks ago but coach Steve Mariucci said he won't decide until late in the week whether to use the starting slot receiver in the Lions game at Green Bay.
-- LG Eric Beverly missed a day of
practice with a groin injury but was back at work Thursday and is expected to
play in the Lions game Sunday at Green Bay.
-- DE James Hall
missed the Lions' Wednesday practice with a slight ankle sprain but practiced
Thursday and is expected to play Sunday at Green Bay.
-- DT Cory Redding, who made a good initial impression before suffering a knee injury in
the second preseason game, is practicing this week and hopes to join DTs Dan Wilkinson, Shaun Rogers and Kelvin Pritchett in the defensive line rotation but
coach Steve Mariucci said that decision hasn't been made yet.
LB James Davis is back on the practice field nearly a month after suffering a
rib injury in the Lions second preseason game but it is not likely he will be in
the lineup Sunday at Green Bay.
-- CB Otis Smith, signed by the
Lions two weeks ago after they lost starting CB Chris Cash for the season with a
knee injury, is likely to get increased playing time in the Lions nickel defense
Sunday at Green Bay.
-- CB Alex Molden, signed by the Lions
after a troublesome season opener in their defensive secondary, is still getting
acquainted with the Lions defensive backs and schemes. If he plays at all at
Green Bay on Sunday, it will probably be in a limited role in the nickel or dime
Thursday night Lions
