Fairley, Fox back on the practice field
ALLEN PARK — Jason Fox was on the practice field today (Friday) with a helmet for the first time since breaking his foot early in training camp. But the offensive lineman didn’t do much other than stretch and watch the other offensive linemen slam into the sled during drills.
Nick Fairley was back at it for a third day. But from the part of practice that the media is allowed to see, it was unclear if the first-round pick was at full go. He had to take a break during drills to have his foot re-wrapped. He practiced on Thursday on a limited basis.
While ESPN has reported Fairley will play on Monday night, that is not a certainty at all. He’s going to need a few full practices to start to get up to speed. Saturday is the only practice day left before Monday night’s game against the Bears.
Safety Erik Coleman (foot) and wide receiver Rashied Davis (foot) remained out on friday.
