Starting middle linebacker DeAndre Levy finally returned to practice today after being out since Aug. 1 with a back injury. Levy had been growing more and more frustrated with being confined to the sidelines, so this is great news for him and even greater news for the Lions.
With Jordon Dizon going down with an injury, depth was getting too thin at middle linebacker. Dizon started in Levy's place on Saturday, and although Vinny Ciurciu did a good job of filling in for Dizon after he left the game, it's good that Levy is back.
In other news, cornerback Jonathan Wade sat out practice today because of a left hand injury.
