Smith sits; David signed

However, wide receiver Calvin Johnson, who missed the last two games with a knee injury, did practice. Johnson was a game-time decision on Sunday and is expected to be back this Sunday at Seattle.
The Lions placed defensive back Demarcus Faggins, who was injured on Sunday, on the Injured Reserve list.
