Kyle Vanden Bosch Returns To Practice After Day Off

Defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch is no longer on the Detroit Lions' Week 1 injury report. He missed practice on Wednesday, but after practicing on Thursday, he was removed from the injury report.

As it turns out, Vanden Bosch was out on Wednesday simply to rest. This will likely be a regular occurrence throughout the season, according to Jim Schwartz.

"I think just where he is with age, and different things like that, we're going to try to take some wear and tear off of him," Schwartz said. "There probably aren't many Wednesday's he's going to practice over the course of the season."

Running back Maurice Morris and defensive tackle Andre Fluellen, who are dealing with hand injuries, both fully practiced for the second day in a row. Cornerback Alphonso Smith, who is returning from a foot injury, practiced fully after being limited on Wednesday. Offensive tackle Jason Fox and Defensive tackle Nick Fairley, who are also recovering from foot injuries, missed practice again on Thursday.
