As expected, Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson was back on the practice field on Thursday after missing Wednesday's session. Johnson was limited because of his ankle injury, but all indications are he will play on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans. In fact, Johnson is anticipating a big game for the offense based on what the Lions have seen on film so far this week.

The secondary situation continues to show positive signs, as both Chris Houston and Bill Bentley practiced again. Bentley had a full practice on Thursday, so it's looking like he will play on Sunday and return to the starting lineup. The same can't be said for safety Louis Delmas, who didn't practice again and is actually still considered week-to-week. It's looking like we may not see him return until after the Lions' bye, which is only a couple weeks way.

Here's a look at the full Thursday injury report for the Lions:

WR Calvin Johnson (Ankle) - Limited in practice

TE Tony Scheffler (Calf) - Didn't practice

DT Corey Williams (Knee) - Didn't practice

LB Travis Lewis (Quad) - Didn't practice

CB Drayton Florence (Forearm) - Out/IR

CB Bill Bentley (Concussion) - Fully practiced

CB Chris Houston (Ankle) - Fully practiced

S Louis Delmas (Knee) - Didn't practice
