After receiving Sunday off, the Detroit Lions returned on Monday and kicked off Week 2 of training camp with a morning practice. Some notable injury updates emerged from that practice, starting with the return of tight end Joseph Fauria and linebacker DeAndre Levy. Both players had missed recent practices with "tweaks," but they were back in action on Monday.
On the flip side, wide receiver Ryan Broyles became a new addition to the injury list by missing practice on Monday. It's unclear what injury led to his absence, but Jim Caldwell characterized it as something minor. For Broyles' sake, that better be the case, because the last thing he can afford right now is an extended period of time on the sidelines, especially because of another injury.
In other injury news, running back Joique Bell, offensive tackle LaAdrian Waddle and defensive end Jason Jones are still on the physically unable to perform list, and defensive tackle Haloti Ngata is still on the non-football injury list. The good news is that Waddle continued to work with the blocking sleds on Monday, indicating that he's getting closer to being activated, and Jones began the process of returning by starting to work with trainers. Bell has also been working with trainers throughout training camp, and Ngata is apparently conducting his rehab behind the scenes.
Asked Caldwell about Haloti Ngata's hamstring injury. Said he's rehabbing behind scenes, will be back well before start of reg season— Kyle Meinke (@kmeinke) August 10, 2015
