Lions mostly healthy in final practice before MNF
ALLEN PARK — Only two Lions couldn’t practice today (Saturday). Safety Erik Coleman and wide receiver Rashied Davis were both out with foot injuries.
Rookie defensive tackle Nick Fairley was participating fully in the portion of practice open to the media. He has had limited practice the past two days according to the Lions’ injury report. He said on Friday he had not been told if he will make his NFL debut on Monday. Fairley broke his foot early in training camp. This was his first full week of practice.
Offensive lineman Jason Fox practiced for second straight day. It’s likely it was on a limited basis. He is not expected to play on Monday.
In practice squad moves, G Jacques McClendon was signed. He had been cut from the Lions’ 53-man roster earlier in the week. WR Owen Spencer was cut to make room.
