Detroit Lions: Jason Fox returns to practice; Calvin Johnson out

ALLEN PARK — Right tackle Jason Fox returned to practice today (Wednesday) for the first time since he injured his knee in the Oct. 6 loss at Green Bay.

It’s good news for the Lions with injuries to Corey Hilliard (knee) and Riley Reiff who did not practice. Coach Jim Schwartz said on Monday that Hilliard is not day to day but he’s also not long term. Reiff was able to finish Sunday’s game.

Calvin Johnson did not work on Wednesday, but it’s not unusual for him to sit out an occasional practice.

Also out Wednesday were defensive tackle Andre Fluellen, safety Louis Delmas (who rarely practices on Wednesdays with his bum knee) and wide receiver Nate Burleson (broken forearm).

The Lions play the Dallas Cowboys at Ford Field on Sunday. Both teams have 4-3 records.
