Lions running back LeGarrette Blount cuts upfield after a reception.

Allen Park -- After a hard landing forced Marvin Jones to the sideline on Saturday, the Detroit Lions receiver was back on the field for Sunday's practice. 

Before practice, Lions coach Matt Patricia made it sound as if Jones might sit out at least another day, exhibiting precaution during this time of the year. 

"Marvin, we evaluated him this morning," Patricia said. "He's good. He's fine. We're always cautious, a bit, the day after. We're working a lot of days in a row here, from that standpoint, so any sort of situation where a guy feels something or is dinged up, whatever it is, anything along those lines, we're always going to be a little bit cautious because we know we have a lot of consecutive days in a row of practice."

But minutes later, Jones was on the field, working through the day's initial set of drills, showing no signs of sluggishness after the collision from the day before.

Also returning to practice for the Lions were cornerback Nevin Lawson, rookie safety Tracy Walker and wide receiver Teo Redding. Patricia noted that Lawson was dealing with a person issue on Saturday. 

One notable Lions player was unable to finish Sunday's padded practice. Running back LeGarrette Blount left the field with a trainer about halfway through the day and didn't return.
