Allen Park — For NFL ironman Glover Quin, it appears the bye week couldn’t have come at a better time.
The Lions safety suffered a concussion in the third quarter of the team’s Week 6 loss to the New Orleans Saints, after colliding with teammate A’Shawn Robinson. But Quin was on the practice field Monday, suggesting there’s a good chance he’ll be able to play against the Pittsburgh Steelers this weekend.
Quin has started 122 consecutive games, the longest active streak among safeties and seventh-longest in the league overall.
Also returning to practice for the Lions was linebacker Paul Worrilow, who has been out since Week 4 with a knee injury.
Not practicing for the Lions were wide receiver Golden Tate (shoulder), offensive tackle Greg Robinson (ankle), guard Emmett Cleary (ankle) and tight end Eric Ebron (paternity).
