Lions a mostly healthy bunch at practice
ALLEN PARK -- Starting defensive linemen Cliff Avril (quadriceps) and Corey Williams (groin) were back at practice today (Thursday) after sitting out Wednesday’s session.
Also returning after a day off were running back Kevin Smith (knee) and right guard Stephen Peterman.
Kicker Jason Hanson was on the field, wearing a helmet and going through kicking motions. He is expected to miss Sunday’s game which is why they signed Dave Rayner.
Still missing from practice were quarterback Matthew Stafford and linebacker/special teams Isaiah Ekejiuba.
The Lions (2-6) play at the Buffalo Bills (0-8) at 1 p.m. on Sunday.
