Detroit Lions offensive guard Larry Warford was back at practice on Sunday after suffering a neck injury on Saturday.

The Detroit Lions got their first injury scare of the year on Saturday when offensive guard Larry Warford went down at their rookie minicamp. Warford appeared to have suffered an arm injury of some sort, but it turns out he hurt actually hurt his neck. The Free Press called it a stinger, meaning it was more of a scare than an actual injury.

Warford was back on the practice field on Sunday as the Lions wrapped up their rookie minicamp. He only took part in individual drills, but Lions head coach Jim Schwartz said that was more for precautionary reasons than anything. From the Free Press:

"He could have gone through everything today. But we just limited him to just individual today. We didn’t want him going through any of the half-line stuff or the team stuff or anything like that. So we made the decision on him just to err on the side of caution."

This doesn't sound like anything serious, and the Lions certainly didn't want it to turn into something that could force Warford to miss time down the road. That's why they played it safe on Sunday. The last thing the Lions need is for a potential starter to get unnecessarily banged up during a rookie minicamp.
