Lions injury report: Only Nick Fairley misses practice

New, comments

Aside from Nick Fairley, every Detroit Lions player fully practiced on Thursday.

Going into their game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Detroit Lions appear to be an extremely healthy team. I say that because nearly every player on their active roster practiced without any limitations on Thursday. Take a look:

RB Reggie Bush (ankle/back) - Fully practiced
WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) - Fully practiced
OT Riley Reiff (knee) - Fully practiced
OG Larry Warford (knee) - Fully practiced
DT Nick Fairley (knee) - Did not practice

Wide receiver Calvin Johnson was the only player who was limited on Wednesday, and he was able to fully practice on Thursday. With running back Reggie Bush and offensive linemen Riley Reiff and Larry Warford also fully practicing, it appears all of those players will play on Sunday.

The only player on the roster who didn't practice is defensive tackle Nick Fairley. That's no surprise, of course, as Fairley likely won't be back for at least several weeks.

Obviously it would be nice for Fairley to be on the verge of returning as well, but I'm sure the Lions are quite happy with their health situation after dealing with so many injuries earlier in the year. It will be tough to stay quite this healthy as the regular season comes to a close, but their injury situation is quite encouraging for the time being.
