Calvin Johnson and Louis Delmas were back on the practice field today for the Detroit Lions after sitting out the last two days to rest knee injuries. Both players were listed as limited on the injury report.

Running back Reggie Bush, however, did not participate in the open portion of practice for a second consecutive day because of a calf injury. Bush stretched with his teammates, and did some very light individual work without a helmet, but didn’t do any cutting.

Bush practiced on Tuesday but showed up on Wednesday’s injury report and hasn’t practiced since.

Cornerback Darius Slay might have suffered a knee injury at practice today. The rookie was a full participate at practice Wednesday and wasn’t listed on the injury report. He participated in the portion of practice open to the media on Thursday, but then showed up on the post-practice injury report as limited with a knee injury.

The severity of the injury is unknown.

Slay started for the injured Chris Houston in last week’s. 40-10, victory over Green Bay. It was his best game as a professional.

Houston, who missed last week's  game because of a foot injury, has practiced all week, but was listed as limited on Wednesday and Thursday’s injury report.

Defensive end Israel Idonije also sat out of practice today.

The Lions have one more practice on Friday and a jog-through on Saturday before flying to Philadelphia to face the Eagles on Sunday.
