The Detroit Lions' off day on Tuesday served them quite well on Wednesday. I say that because when the team returned to practice on Wednesday, several players who had previously been absent from practice were back on the field. Wide receiver Titus Young returned after being excused on Monday, and defensive tackles Corey Williams, Sammie Hill and Andre Fluellen all returned after missing time because of injuries.
Not counting the two players on the PUP list (running back Jahvid Best and cornerback Chris Greenwood), the Lions actually only had four players missing from practice on Wednesday: running back Stefan Logan, offensive tackle Jonathan Scott, linebacker Travis Lewis and safety Louis Delmas. Logan and Lewis are dealing with injuries they suffered against the Baltimore Ravens, whereas Scott and Delmas are recovering from injuries that happened toward the beginning of camp.
One other injury note from Wednesday: defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch took part in the Lions' team drills on Wednesday. According to John Kreger, Vanden Bosch didn't have any more rest than what players usually get, so that's a good sign.
