After a walkthrough on Wednesday, the Detroit Lions were back on the practice field at Allen Park on Thursday trying to make up time on a short week for Sunday’s home game against the Minnesota Vikings.
The Thursday practice report isn’t all that different from Wednesday’s, but there are two notable differences. Defensive tackle A’Shawn Robinson was upgraded to a full participant, as was Logan Thomas—who appeared on the injury report for the first time with a shoulder injury. At this point, assuming neither suffers a setback, they should be expected to play this week.
Meanwhile, Quandre Diggs and Da’Shawn Hand—both of whom missed last week’s game against the Packers—remain limited in practice. Diggs appeared to do more than he did last week at practice, but it was hard to tell with Hand, as the team was not in full pads on Thursday.
As for Mike Daniels, it looks like he may miss his third consecutive game. He has not practiced since injuring his foot early in Week 3’s game against the Eagles.
For the Vikings, there was only one change in the injury report. Starting left tackle Riley Reiff returned to practice on Thursday after missing Wednesday with an ankle injury. He looks more likely to face his former team now.
