Lions Get Calvin Johnson, Others Back At Practice On Tuesday

Detroit Lions all-pro wide receiver Calvin Johnson returned to practice on Tuesday after sitting out Monday's practice. Johnson ran through drills with a blue splint on his index finger, but coach Jim Schwartz said that his finger was not the reason Johnson sat out practice on Monday.

Tight end Brandon Pettigrew, offensive tackle Gosder Cherilus, and safety John Wendling all returned to practice after missing Monday as well. Recent addition, cornerback Kevin Barnes also made his first appearance on the field at a Lions' practice on Tuesday.

Running back Kevin Smith remained out of practice with the ankle injury he suffered against the Oakland Raiders in the Lions third preseason game on Aug. 25. Also missing Tuesday's practice were WR Titus Young, DE Kyle Vanden Bosch, DE Lawrence Jackson, LB Travis Lewis, and LB Stephen Tulloch.
