Allen Park — The Detroit Lions got three injured players back at Wednesday’s practice, with linebacker Jarrad Davis (concussion), center Travis Swanson (ankle) and safety Tavon Wilson (shoulder) all returning to the pitch.

But the practice participation report was as long as it’s been this season, with four players sitting out and another seven, including the three returning players, limited.

Sidelined Wednesday were defensive end Ziggy Ansah (knee), guard T.J. Lang (fibula), running back Dwayne Washington (quad) and safety Don Carey (knee).

In addition to returning trio, cornerback Jamal Agnew (pelvis), wide receiver Kenny Golladay (hamstring), safety Glover Quin (knee) and defensive end Anthony Zettel (knee) were limited.

For Davis, it means he’s at least the fourth stage of the league’s five-stage return to play concussion protocol. The final hurdle requires clearance for full contract by an independent neurologist, after being symptom free following participation in non-contact football activities.
