Allen Park — For the second time in as many days, an injury scare turned out to be a non-issue for the Detroit Lions.

Running back LeGarrette Blount left practice on Sunday, but was back in the fold for Monday's session.

"He just had to go in and they had to check him out," coach Matt Patricia said before practice. "I think he should be OK today. We will see him out there."

Blount's issue occurred after wide receiver Marvin Jones had to leave practice on Saturday when he got tangled up with teammates DeShawn Shead while going up for a pass. After not being able to finish the day, Jones returned to action the next morning.

At least four Lions players sat out Monday's practice, headlined by safety Tavon Wilson. Following offseason shoulder surgery, he spent the early portion of the offseason program in a no-contact red jersey.

Also out were safety Stefan McClure, defensive end Cam Johnson and rookie linebacker Chad Meredith.
