The Detroit Lions are in full focus of their Week 3 opponent the Washington Redskins. After suffering a 25-21 loss to the Arizona Cardinals Sunday, they're coming into practice a bit hobbled.
Inactive at practice today was running back Reggie Bush (knee), safety Louis Delmas (rest), tackle Jason Fox (groin), receiver Patrick Edwards (ankle), and safety Don Carey (hamstring). Bush hurt his knee after a 26-yard catch and run this past week. After trying to return in the second half, Bush said he lost his burst and was unable to return. He'll deliver a word for the media later today.
On the brighter side, tackle Nick Fairley was back with helmet and pads on. He only participated in defensive linemen drills as a snapper, but being suited and rotating his injured shoulder and arm in a circle earlier is a positive sign.
Head coach Jim Schwartz said yesterday receiver Ryan Broyles was "getting closer" to making his season debut. He too was practicing again during drills with the wide receivers. Last season, Broyles made his debut with the team on Week 3. We could see the same turn out Sunday at Washington.
