T.J. Hockenson returns to practice but is still in the concussion protocol

The Lions now emerge from their bye week with a record of 2-1-1 and in second place within the NFC North. Detroit is set to face the division leader, the 4-1 Green Bay Packers, this Monday night in a primetime battle on ESPN. Practice participation designations for that day are based on estimations.

Without Savage, third-year defensive back Will Redmond stepped in alongside veteran Adrian Amos and figures to play a significant role against Detroit as the only reserve safety now on the 53-man roster.

"I felt great. My first game, I think that was a coming-out party for me", said Redmond earlier this week.

Both center Corey Linsley and running back Jamaal Williams were cleared this week from the concussion protocol and are expected to play after practicing in full on Saturday. "So I think a guy like him could come back in two weeks is pretty wonderful, too", said Linsley after practice. Hockenson has practiced all week and was listed as a full participant on the injury report on Friday and Saturday.

The six questionable players for Detroit are wide receiver Danny Amendola (chest), safety Quandre Diggs (hamstring), defensive lineman Da'Shawn Hand (elbow), tight end T.J.

Former Packers defensive tackle Mike Daniels (foot) didn't practice this week and has been ruled out.

The Packers also listed cornerback Tony Brown as doubtful.

Hand has yet to play this season, but seems to be nearing a return, while Robinson is dealing with a knee injury.
