Allen Park – The Lions continue to be operating with good health as the team pursues its first division crown in 23 years.

Every player on the active roster was on the practice field for Wednesday’s session, the first in preparation for Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints.

Additionally, defensive end Armonty Bryant was practicing for the first time following the expiration of his three-game suspension. He remains on the commissioner’s exempt list and the Lions would need to cut a player by Saturday if Bryant is going to play against the Saints.

And while Detroit hasn’t made a formal announcement about which player the team will bring back from injured reserve, linebacker Jonathan Bostic continues to ramp up his activity. During the portion of practice open to the media, he was working with a trainer on the side, focusing on dropping back and exploding forward.

Bostic has been sidelined since training camp following foot surgery.
