Lions Training Camp: Calvin Johnson Returns To Practice, Nick Fairley's Progressing

A bit of good news on the injury front was that Calvin Johnson, who had missed a couple days of practice with a bruised shoulder, returned to practice on Tuesday.

There was also some progress with Lions’ first round draft pick Nick Fairley, who appears one step closer to returning to the ‘Silver Crush.’ He was watching practice from the sidelines on Tuesday in the comfort of a new walking boot, which replaced his recently removed cast. Fairley, who had surgery two weeks ago, is taking rehab day-by-day and hopes he can return as soon as possible.

Other notes on the Lions’ other injury problems: Lions cornerbacks Chris Houston and Eric Wright both missed practice again on Tuesday with groin injuries. The injuries are luckily deemed to be not that serious. Defensive tackle Corey Williams, who had to leave practice early on Monday because he rolled his ankle, did not practice on Tuesday, either.
