Lions a healthy group with Calvin Johnson back at practice
ALLEN PARK — Calvin Johnson was back at practice today (Thursday) after sitting out on Tuesday and Wednesday with a sore Achilles. There really hasn’t been much doubt that he would play on Saturday night in New Orleans, but it was a good sign that he was back at work.
And amazingly, all the other Lions were practicing too even Kevin Smith and Tony Scheffler who collided on Wednesday.
This is the healthiest the Lions have been for ages and the timing couldn’t be better. They will need all healthy bodies to give them a chance against the Saints who have not lost at the Superdome all season.
