Allen Park — Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson (ankle) was the only player who missed practice Thursday, but there were three other starters limited.

Defensive tackle Haloti Ngata (neck), right tackle Michael Ola (knee) and safety Glover Quin (ankle) were all listed as limited Thursday, the team's first full practice this week as it prepares for a Monday night game against the New Orleans Saints (8:30 p.m., ESPN).

Although Johnson has had minimal participation in practice in recent weeks, he hasn't missed a game since suffering the ankle injury in Week 8.

Quin has been dealing with his ankle injury the past couple weeks, but hasn't missed any time. Ola played through his knee injury last Sunday in St. Louis. Ngata's injury is new.

Wide receiver Lance Moore (ankle) was a full participant Thursday after missing the past two games. He appears to be on track to return for the matchup against his former team.
