Calvin, Bell, Mathis, Houston were practicing. Fox, Riddick, Scheffler, Delmas not. Riddick was on the field, good sign— Chris McCosky (@cmccosky) October 16, 2013
That's the word about Wednesday's practice from ESPN 96.1 Lions insider Chris McCosky.
Even more encouraging is the news from Detroit News reporter Josh Katzenstein, who added via tweet that this was most extensive work that Johnson has done in the past two weeks.
Additionally, McCosky tweeted that DT CJ Mosley was being tended to by a trainer, but the issue hasn't been reported yet.
McCosky added that WR Patrick Edwards, released on Tuesday following last weekend's performance against the Browns, has now been signed to the practice squad.
FB Shaun Chapas has also been released.
