Detroit Lions Safety Amari Spievey Returns To Practice After Missing Friday's Preseason Game

Held out of Friday's preseason opener with the Cleveland Browns due to headaches, Detroit Lions safety Amari Spievey joined his teammates and returned to practice on Sunday afternoon according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.

Put in a precarious position with starting safety Louis Delmas on the shelf for a number of weeks and backup safety Don Carey also nursing a hamstring injury, the Lions are quite lucky that Spievey's problems appear to be relatively minor and may not force him to miss any more game action.

A third-round selection by the Lions in 2010, Spievey was diagnosed with a concussion after Detroit's playoff loss to New Orleans this past season, and was feared to have been experiencing concussion-like symptoms leading up to Friday's game. Although head coach Jim Schwartz mentioned to the media that he does not believe Spievey's headaches are related to his previous injury, the Lions need to be extra cautious right now with one of the fixtures of their now-depleted secondary.
