Fairley practices again; Spievey, Coleman still out
ALLEN PARK — First-round pick Nick Fairley returned to practice for second straight day today (Thursday). It’s the first back-to-back practices for the defensive tackle since he broke his foot early in training camp.
This does not necessarily mean that he will play in the Monday night game against the Bears, but it’s a step in the right direction.
Calvin Johnson, Titus Young and Stephen Tulloch all returned to practice after sitting out on Wednesday.
Still out are Amari Spievey, Erik Coleman, Rashied Davis and Jason Fox.
The Lions signed S Vince Fuller who played for Jim Schwartz with the Tennessee Titans. To make room on the roster they cut G Jacques McClendon.
Standing room only tickets for Monday night’s game go on sale at 1 p.m. today at Ticketmaster.com and DetroitLions.com. Tickets are $50 with a limit of four per person.
