The Detroit Lions expect rookie cornerback Chris Greenwood to begin practicing with the team this week after coming off the PUP list.
Detroit Lions rookie cornerback Chris Greenwood has come off the physically unable to perform list after undergoing surgery to repair a sports hernia and the team expects him to return to the practice field this week.
Greenwood, a fifth-round pick out of Albion College, missed all of training camp, preseason, and the first six weeks of the regular season with a sports hernia. Once Greenwood returns to practice, the Lions have 21 days before they have to decide whether to add him to the roster, cut him, or place him on injured reserve. The 6'1 cornerback ran a 4.42-second 40-yard dash at the University of Michigan's pro day and impressed scouts at the East-West Shrine Game in January.
