Detroit Lions: Calvin Johnson, Ziggy Ansah return to practice

ALLEN PARK — Calvin Johnson and Ezekiel Ansah returned to Lions’ practice today (Friday).

It’s the first practice for Ansah since he rolled his ankle in the win over Dallas on Oct. 27. It’s unclear if the starting defensive end will be ready to play on Sunday at Pittsburgh.

Johnson did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday, but said on Thursday that he expects to play Sunday. He’s been nursing a knee injury since early in the season. 

Cornerback Bill Bentley (knee) and Montell Owens (knee) remain out. They haven’t practiced at all this week which makes it unlikely they will play on Sunday.

Reggie Bush (knee) and Louis Delmas (knee) didn’t practice on Friday. The safety usually practices only on Thursdays to save his knee for Sundays. Bush has not practiced the last two Fridays and still played on Sunday.

The Lions (6-3) play at the Steelers (3-6) on Sunday.
