Kevin Smith returns to practice but is limited; Chris Houston back

ALLEN PARK — Running back Kevin Smith, who missed Sunday’s game, was at practice today (Wednesday), but wasn’t able to do much. He was doing balance drills on the sideline with a trainer following the stretch period.

Smith sustained a high ankle sprain on Thanksgiving.

Cornerback Chris Houston, who has missed the last two games with a sprained MCL, was back at practice. Also back was Nick Fairley who didn’t play Sunday after aggravating his foot injury in New Orleans.

Still missing were Louis Delmas (knee), Eric Wright (hamstring), Justin Durant (hamstring), Aaron Berry (shoulder) and Lawrence Jackson (thigh).

Defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch didn’t practice which is the norm on Wednesdays when he is given a rest.

The Lions (8-5) play at the Oakland Raiders (7-6) at 4 p.m. on Sunday. The Raiders are coming off two lop-sided losses — at Miami 34-14 and at Green Bay 46-16.
