Detroit Lions: Riley Reiff, Calvin Johnson return to practice; only Hilliard, Burleson out

ALLEN PARK — Only two Lions did not practice today (Thursday). That’s a remarkably low number for week 8 of the NFL season.

Right tackle Corey Hilliard (knee) was out along with Nate Burleson (broken forearm).

Calvin Johnson (knee), Riley Reiff (hamstring), Andre Fluellen (concussion) and Louis Delmas (knee) all returned after sitting out Wednesday’s practice. They were all working in the early portion of practice open to the media.

Reiff’s return is big especially with Hilliard out. 

Also right tackle Jason Fox, who missed two games, was back for the second-straight day.

The NFL announced this morning that the Lions will play a road game at London’s Wembley Stadium in 2014 against the Atlanta Falcons.
