Lions Training Camp: Jahvid Best Returns; Kyle Vanden Bosch Still Out

The Detroit Lions held their second-to-last open practice of training camp on Wednesday, and the fans in attendance got to see the return of running back Jahvid Best. He was cleared to practice by trainers on Tuesday, and he returned to the practice field on Wednesday for the first time since suffering his apparent concussion against the Cleveland Browns last Friday.

While Best returned, wide receiver Calvin Johnson and defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch were both stuck on the sideline again. Both Johnson and Vanden Bosch are dealing with sore shoulders, and at this point in the preseason there's no sense in rushing veterans like them back out onto the practice field if they're not 100 percent healthy.

Two veterans who did come back after missing practice are wide receiver Rashied Davis and offensive tackle Gosder Cherilus. The two players had Tuesday off to rest, but they were back at it on Wednesday.

Wide receiver Titus Young was also back at it on Wednesday. He has now practiced four days in a row, which is a good sign going forward as he continues to try to get ready to play in an actual game.

UPDATE: In roster news, the Lions signed former Michigan State center Chris Morris on Wednesday. Offensive guard Greg Niland was released to make room on the roster for Morris. Check out Pride of Detroit for more info on Morris.
