Allen Park — The Lions were missing four players during Wednesday's practice, but starting running back Ameer Abdullah was on the field.

Linebacker Jarrad Davis (concussion), safety Tavon Wilson (shoulder), running back Dwayne Washington (quad) and center Travis Swanson (ankle) sat out. Defensive end Ziggy Ansah (knee) and guard Joe Dahl (lower leg) were limited.

Swanson played every snap against the Giants on Monday, but appeared to hurt his leg early in the game when he was accidentally leg-whipped by a downed defender on an outside run.

Abdullah pulled up lame on a lengthy run late in the fourth quarter and didn’t return. In the locker room, after the game, he told reporters he was fine.
